Design of a Fuzzy Networked Control Systems. Priority Exchange Scheduling Algorithm

H. Benítez-Pérez, Jorge Ortega-Arjona, Jared A. Rojas-Vargas, A. Durán-Chavesti


This work presents a supervisory control strategy for Networked Control Systems (NCSs). This shows the identification and control of the plant using fuzzy theory. The fuzzy model incorporates the delay dynamics within the fuzzy rules based upon a real-time hierarchical scheduling strategy. A hierarchical scheduling Priority Exchange algorithm is used based upon codesign strategy following mutual correlation among control and network algorithms in order to bounded time delays. A system of magnetic levitation is presented as a case study.
