"A Reconfigurable Communication Gateway for Distributed Embedded Control Systems";
- 10-28-2012; in: "IECON 2012 - 38th Annual Conference on IEEE Industrial Electronics Society",
Modern automation and control systems used in
industrial large-scale applications are characterized by its distributed
nature in the areas of power and energy systems, manufacturing,
building automation, and logistics. In order to cope
with different communication needs and changing requirements
in such large-scale scenarios over its life-time, the main aim of
this paper is to propose a programmable and (re-)configurable
communication gateway device compliant to domain standards.
This approach is therefore based on the IEC 61499 reference
model for distributed and reconfigurable automation and
uses the service interface function block concept and highlevel
communication patterns to achieve a hardware-independent
access to communication services. Moreover, the utilization of
the IEC 61499 management model supports the possibility of
the online-reconfiguration of communication links and therefore
provides a very flexible structure and implementation for an
industrial automation gateway device.
