A NEW HIERARCHICAL CONTROL SCHEME FOR A CLASS OF CYCLICALLY REPEATED DISCRETE-EVENT SYSTEMS

Danjing Li, Eckart Mayer, Jörg Raisch

Abstract

We extend the hierarchical control method in (Li et al., 2004) to a more generic setting which involves cyclically repeated processes. A hierarchical architecture is presented to facilitate control synthesis. Specifically, a conservative max-plus model for cyclically repeated processes is introduced on the upper level which provides an optimal online plan list. An enhanced min-plus algebra based scheme on the lower level not only handles unexpected events but, more importantly, addresses cooperation issues between sub-plants and different cycles. A rail traffic example is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
