AUTOMATA BASED MODELLING AND SIMULATION - Application in an Industrial Software Environment

Vasileios Deligiannis, Stamatis Manesis

Abstract

Contemporary industrial systems are hybrid systems, and hybrid automata and Petri Nets are the most used approaches to model such systems. Despite academic efforts these two approaches did not meet wide acceptance when proposed for industrial use, mainly because they are application depended. In this paper, a recently proposed hyper-class of hybrid automata is presented, which seems to cover this weakness. Illustrating its use, an application of this new formulation method in an industrial software environment is given. The given example is taken from a chemical industry and uses PID controllers to control continuous variables, while the whole project was developed in a SCADA software platform.
