The ever increasing complexity of manufacturing systems demands for new real-time control infrastructures. With the new standard IEC 61499 the IEC introduced a base for such a control infrastructure. An open issue of this standard is the missing definition of real-time execution. Based on existing real-time execution theory different execution models for(More)
Modern industrial automation systems are supposed to execute applications distributed across heterogeneous networks. Additionally the market has raised a demand for downtime less operation and change of automation and control for such systems. Consequently appropriate concepts for recovering and reconfiguring devices during full operation are needed. The(More)
The complexity of automation and control systems is fast increasing in order to satisfy the arising needs of the manufacturing industry. The central exigencies for new production facilities are flexibility, adaptability and reconfigurability in combination with guarantees for downtime less operation. Additionally modern automation systems are supposed to(More)

Currently applied autonomous power supplies are designed for specific energy demands and therefore rather inflexible. For an increased user friendliness, allowing attaching and detaching electrical devices without new load calculations, a flexible Power Distribution System is necessary. This can be reached by applying an Energy Management System. A concept(More)
