High-level synthesis has become commonplace in many areas of computing such as VLSI design and digital signal processing. However, it is just beginning to receive attention in the area of real-time systems. Given a real-time application and a design library of components, high-level synthesis involves three main steps: (i) estimation of processors and(More)
Tasks in a real-time application usually have several stringent timing, resource, and communication requirements. Designing a distributed computing system which can meet all these requirements is a challenging problem. In this paper, we alleviate this problem by proposing a technique to determine a lower bound on the number of processors and resources(More)
In this paper, a parallel algorithm for solving the load flow problem of large power systems is presented. This algorithm uses a parallel virtual machine implemented as a distributed system built from readily available PCs. The proposed algorithm is based on the Gauss-Seidel algorithm usually used in the solution of load flow problems. This algorithm is(More)
