Communications in Distributed Control Environment with Dynamic Configuration

Abstract

Distributed Control Systems (DCS) are based on assignments of control loops and supervision points to different units. In a first approach, these assignments are made statically and following given distribution criteria. This paper presents a proposal of communications system over a DCS which allows the interchanging of assignments between the control units. The objective is to provide a frame for dynamical load balancing in the system with reactivity against meaningful variables in the system such as changes in the process, traffic demands or computing load in every processor.
