We study the problem of scheduling repetitive real-time tasks with the Earliest Deadline First (EDF) policy that can guarantee the given maximal temperature constraint. We show that the traditional scheduling approach, i.e., to repeat the schedule that is feasible through the range of one hyper-period, does not apply any more. Then, we present necessary and(More)
Tremendous theoretical research efforts have been made in the past decade to address the stringent real-time constraints and soaring power consumption challenges in embedded systems. However, the experimental work that can validate and evaluate the applicability and effectiveness of these theoretical results is very limited, largely due to the lengthy and(More)
Globalisation trends and bioterrorism issues have led to new concerns relating to public health, animal health, international trade and food security. There is an imperative to internationalise and strengthen global public health capacity by renewed emphasis on veterinary public health in veterinary education and increasing opportunities for elective(More)
In this work, we propose a new control law based on the combination between the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method and the classical PI controller to extract the maximum power from a photovoltaic PV panel subject to partial shading. The photovoltaic PV panel has a nonlinear Power-Voltage (P-V) characteristic curve which is used in most controllers to(More)
