It has een conjectured that self-triggering can relax the requiremen ts on real-time sc heduler while main

taining application (i.e. con trol system) erformance. This pap er presen ts pre- liminary results supp orting that conjecture for self-triggered real-time system implemen ting full-information con trollers. Release times are selected to enforce upp er ounds on the induced gain of linear feed- bac con trol system. These release times are treated as requests the system sc heduler, whic then assigns actual release times using But- tazzo’s elastic sc heduling algorithm. Preliminary exp erimen tal results from Matlab stateo sim ulink mo del demonstrated remark able ro- bustness to sc

heduling dela ys induced real-time sc hedulers. These results sho that self-triggered con trollers are indeed able to main tain acceptable lev els of application erformance during prolonged erio ds of pro cessor erloading. In tro duction Computer con trolled systems are often implemen ted using erio dic real-time tasks. This approac can lead to signican er-pro visioning of the real-time system since task erio ds are determined the orst case time in terv al assur- ing closed lo op system stabilit In recen ears, um er of researc hers ha prop osed ap erio dic task mo dels in whic tasks

are either event-trigger [1] or self-trigger [2] con trollers. Ev en t-triggered con trol systems are systems whose con trol tasks are triggered some async hronous \ev en t" within the con trol lo op. These ev en ts are usually generated when an error signal crosses sp eci- ed threshold. The notion of ev en t-triggered feedbac [1] has app eared under ariet of names, suc as in terrupt-based feedbac [3], Leb esgue sampling [4], async hronous sampling [5], or state-triggered feedbac [6]. Except for rela or pulse-width mo dulated feedbac k, ev en t-triggered feedbac can impractical since

ph ysical plan t. more pragmatic approac for implemen ting ap erio dic feedbac is found in the self-triggered task mo del of elasco et al. [2]. In self-triggered systems, the con trol task determines its next release time based on samples of the state gathered at the curren release time. Self-triggered task mo dels, therefore, can implemen ted in existing computer con trolled system without the

need for an sp ecial analog ev en t-detectors. This pap er presen ts exp erimen tal results examining the erformance of self-triggered con trol system. Our system’s con trol tasks select sampling eri- ds in that guaran tees the closed-lo op system’s induced gain satises sp ecied ound. then consider real-time system that sc hedules ul- tiple self-triggered con trol tasks using traditional earliest-deadline-rst (EDF) sc heduling and Buttazzo’s elastic sc heduling algorithm [7]. Our implemen ta- tion of Buttazzo’s sc heduler relies on utilization constrain similar to that

originally suggested Chan tem et al. [8]. Preliminary sim ulation results for Sim ulink/Stateo mo del of real-time system con trolling three in erted en- dulums sho ed that the con trol system’s erformance under self-triggering as remark ably insensitiv to the yp of sc heduler used the real-time system. While preliminary these results strongly suggest that self-triggering can pro- vide aluable of ensuring con trol system erformance in cases where the sc heduler is unable to pro vide hard real-time guaran tees on job completion. Prior ork on Sample erio Selection This section

briey reviews some of the prior ork on sample erio selection. Sample erio selection for ap erio dic real-time systems requires detailed anal- ysis of the system’s in tersample eha vior. This usually in olv es studying can- didate Ly apuno function as as done in Zheng et al. [9] for class of nonlin- ear sampled-data systems. Nesic et al. [10] used input-to-state stabilit (ISS) tec hniques to ound the in tersample eha vior of nonlinear systems [10]. This approac as used abuada et al. [6] to estimate sampling erio ds for class of nonlinear ev en t-triggered con trol systems. All of the

aforecited orks selected sampling erio ds to preserv some mea- sure of the con trol system’s stabilit whether this is asymptotic stabilit or input-to-state stabilit Applications, ho ev er, also need to ensure some mini- um lev el of con trol system erformance. Early ork concerning the co-design of con trol systems and real-time systems view ed this as sc hedulabilit prob- lem in whic sampling erio ds ere selected to solv the follo wing optimization problem, minimize: enalt on Con trol erformance with resp ect to: Sampling erio ds sub ject to: closed lo op stabilit task set sc hedulabilit (1)

Early statemen ts of this problem ma found in Seto et al. [11] with more recen studies in [12] and [13]. The enalt function used in the ab problem
Page 3
is often erformance index for an innite-horizon optimal con trol. The problem face here, ho ev er, is that suc erformance indices [5] are rarely monotone functions of the sampling erio d. So it can ery dicult to iden tify \optimal" sampling erio ds for the ab problem. This pap er uses Ly apuno tec hniques to select sampling erio ds that ound the in tersample eha vior of the system. This is similar to the approac hes

in [10], [9], and [6]. But rather than simply assuring closed lo op stabilit select sam- pling erio ds to adjust the induced gain of the system. This approac allo ws us to mak the system resp onsiv to ariations in the in tensit of the input dis- turbances driving the system. In the presence of high-in tensit disturbances, for example, the system can reduce its gain to eep its output signal elo some sp ecied threshold. In the presence of lo w-in tensit disturbances, it can then relax that gain and still ensure that the output remains elo the same sp ec- ied threshold. The

ariations in disturbance in tensit are therefore mirrored in ariations of the system gain whic in turn result in large ariations in the sampling erio d. This means that during erio ds of lo disturbance in tensit the erage sampling erio can uc longer than during erio ds of high disturbance in tensit The ounds on in tersample eha vior ensuring sp ecied gain are discussed in section 4. Because our con trollers enforce sp ecied in- duced gain, conne our atten tion to linear full-information con trollers for whic can generate tigh ounds on the system’s in tersample eha vior.

System Mo del The real-time system considered in this pap er consists of dynamical systems (called plan ts) that are con trolled tasks running on single pro cessor. Eac task samples (S) the system state, computes state feedbac con trol, and outputs that con trol to the plan through zero-order hold (H). The state of the th plan satises the initial alue problem, (2) (0) for and The function is an uncon- trolled and ounded disturbance. The function is the con trol input generated the th real-time con trol task. and are appropriately dimensioned matrices. The th plan t’s con trol, is

generated task ask is asso ciated with sequence of release times =1 The time is that time when the th job of task is ailable for execution. The task set is said to sync hronous if [0] is the same for all The erio for the th job of task is denoted as 1] (3) If is constan for all then the task is said to erio dic. task that is not erio dic is said to sp oradic

Sample erio Selection for Induced Gain This section states the pap er’s main result concerning sample erio selection enforcing sp ecied ound on the closed-lo op system’s induced gain. conne our atten tion to the eha vior of single plan et een consecutiv release times. therefore drop the task index, without loss of generalit assume, for the purp ose of analytic simplicit that the con trol satises equation for all et een consecutiv ele ase times rather than con- secutiv nishing times This simplication is done for analytical con enience at

This is more conserv ativ

condition than the one in theorem and it is similar to the switc hing condition used in [6]. Therefore using an analysis similar to that in [6] can sho that the \sampling erio d" is ounded elo ositiv constan t. In general, ho ev er, this lo er ound can an extremely conserv ativ estimate of the sampling erio d.

Sc hedulabilit with Deadlines less than erio ds The preceding section suggests that if our task retriggers itself so equation is alw ys satised, then our sampled-data system can guaran tee the system’s closed lo op gain is less than This ma only happ en, ho ev er, if the released tasks can meet their real-time deadlines. Earliest deadline rst (EDF) sc hedulers are frequen

tly used in erio dically triggered real-time con trol systems. In the self- triggered system, ho ev er, release times will ary dep ending up on the system’s curren state. As result need to consider sc heduler that can adjust its task erio ds while assuring EDF sc hedulabilit and the \minim um" task erio required the application. The elastic task mo del of Buttazzo et al., [7], is opular metho of adjusting task erio ds. The elastic task mo del uses mec hanical analogy to dev elop an algorithm for adjusting task erio ds. This analogy views tasks as eing in terconnected \springs". The length of

the spring represen ts the task’s utilization and the spring constan represen ts that task’s resistance to hanging its utilization. Buttazzo’s elastic task mo del as extended Caccamo et al. [14] to handle uncertain ties in computation time. later pap er [15] sho ed ho to mo dify Buttazzo’s algorithm to handle additional resource constrain ts. Hu et al [16] sho ed that Buttazzo’s elastic sc heduling algorithm can view ed as minimizing task set’s summed squared utilization sub ject to the Liu-La yland EDF sc hedulabilit condition [17]. In our system, task deadlines will alw ys signican

tly less than task e- rio ds. This is needed to ensure short time dela et een the state sampling and the release of the con trol signal. Suc task sets are sc hedulable under EDF if and only if =1 (12)

Pro cessor demand analysis requires that the total pro cessor demand of all released tasks in an in terv al is less than or equal to the total pro cessing er ailable in that in terv al. or task sets in whic the deadline is less than the erio d, the th task’s pro cessor demand er

In our application, release times are recomputed eac time the task is called and so the task set is really not erio dic. As result only need to hec equation 12 er subset of namely those times that are less than or equal to the next release time. This idea as used in Chan tem et al. [8] to prop ose heuristic generalization of Buttazzo’s elastic sc heduling algorithm. The follo wing theorem in tro duces sc hedulabilit condition similar to

that used in [8] whic can directly used with Buttazzo’s algorithm. Theorem 2.

The sc heduler handles as request for the sp ecied task erio d. If the sc heduler simply gran ts the task’s requested erio d, sa it is rigid task sc heduler. If the sc heduler adjusts the requested erio as is done in Buttazzo’s algorithm, then sa the task sc heduler is elastic Let =T denote the utilization requested the th task. or the sim ulations in section 7, our elastic task sc heduler assigns task utilization, =T in manner that solv es the

This optimization problem seeks to minimize the squared dierence et een task’s desired utilization, and its actual utilization, The allo cation is done sub ject to constrain ts in theorem 2. These constrain ts require that the allo cated utilizations assure

closed lo op stabilit while remaining sc hedulable under EDF. It is imp ortan to note that the optimization problem in equation 20 is pre- cisely the problem considered in Hu et al. [16] and Chan tem et al. [8]. In those pap ers it as sho wn that Buttazzo’s elastic sc heduling algorithm [15] actually assigns task erio ds in that alw ys satises the optimization problem in equation 20. So in our prop osed self-triggered system, can simply use But- tazzo’s algorithm directly to allo cate task utilization.

(Left) ask erio 250, (Righ t) ask erio 500 Final Remarks In comparing the sim ulation results et een the baseline, erio dically triggered, and self-triggered systems it should apparen that the self-triggered system as able to main tain an acceptable lev el of transien erformance regardless of whether rigid or elastic sc heduler as used. This as somewhat surprising at rst glance. But in hindsigh it as conjectured that this migh due to the inheren feedbac nature of self-triggering. In selecting the next release based on the curren state, self-triggered system is using state

feedbac to adjust task erio ds in that assures erall system \p erformance". The feedbac nature of this in teraction suggests that the erformance of self- triggered systems should ery robust to pro cessor erloads and late (dela ed) jobs. Our sim ulations sho ed that the rigidly sc heduled system as erloaded whereas the elastically sc heduled system as not erloaded. Inspite of the fact that the rigidly sc heduled system as erloaded, gure clearly sho ws that the transien resp onse is ery similar to the baseline resp onse. The task erio ds in the elastically sc heduled self-triggered

system ere long enough to destabilize the erio dically triggered system (gure 3). The results in gure clearly sho that ev en with this longer task erio d, the self-triggered system as able to preserv con trol erformance. In other ords, self-triggered systems app ear to main tain acceptable lev els of application erformance in the face of signican pro cessor erloading. This pap er’s results therefore demonstrate that self-triggering can main tain acceptable lev els of system erformance regardless of whether or not sc hedule in an elastic manner. In particular, these

results seem to suggest practical for relaxing the need for \hard" real-time supp ort in computer con trolled systems. These results, ho ev er, are only preliminary and future ork will need to more rigorously erify them.
