Discrete Event Control Systems

Course Description

Definitions and differences between time driven and event driven systems. Mathematical tools for discrete event systems (DES) modeling: graphs, max-plus algebra, Petri nets, system matrices. DES analysis and modeling: examples from transport, warehouse and manufacturing systems. Stability analysis; bounded buffers, deadlock and livelock. Resource utilization and work-in-process analysis. DES control algorithms design and implementation for conflict resolution, deadlock allocation and prevention.
