Transformation of Simulink models to IEC 61499 Function Blocks for verification of distributed control systems

  title={Transformation of Simulink models to IEC 61499 Function Blocks for verification of distributed control systems},
  author={Chia-han Yang and Valeriy Vyatkin},
In this paper, a new model-based engineering approach is introduced by bridging MATLAB Simulink with IEC61499 Function Block models. This is achieved by a transformation between the two blockdiagram languages. The transformation supported by the developed tools sets the cornerstone of the verification and validation framework for IEC 61499 Function Blocks in closed-loop with the models of the plant. The framework also paves the way to running distributed simulations of complex hybrid (i.e… CONTINUE READING
