In an industrial or technical context, some of the communications are strongly time-constrained. Our objective is to evaluate the service offered by a switched Ethernet architecture. We have chosen the network calculus theory because it gives a good representation of the exchanges and enables to determine the maximum end to end delays. Previous models(More)
Nurses are often involved in helping patients alleviate chronic distressing gastrointestinal symptoms such as those associated with irritable bowel syndrome or functional bowel disorder. One therapeutic strategy is to increase dietary fiber intake and to eliminate gastrointestinal (GI) irritants such as caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco smoking. However,(More)
In research on networked control systems (NCS), the performance of the control system is assumed to be affected by network-induced parameters such as delays, jitters, packet losses and link failures. In this paper, two delay compensation methods are studied, adaptive Smith Predictor and robust control, in the framework of Networked Control Systems while(More)
The Ethernet network is more and more used to interconnect industrial devices. The objective of this paper is to study the performances of such a network to support real-time communications. For this, first we propose a general representation to model a switched Ethernet network by using a sequence of elementary components such as buffers, multiplexers,(More)
Recent interest in networked control systems (NCS) has instigated research in both communication networks and control. Analysis of NCSs has usually been performed from either the network or the control point of view, but not many papers exist where the analysis of both is done in the same context. In this paper an overall analysis of the networked control(More)
This paper presents an approach to fault tolerant control based on the sensor masking principle in the case of wireless networked control systems. With wireless transmission, packet losses act as sensor faults. In the presence of such faults, the faulty measurements corrupt directly the behaviour of closed-loop systems. Since the controller aims at(More)
