2013 (English)In: 39TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE IEEE INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS SOCIETY (IECON 2013): 39th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, 2013, 5594-5599 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Applying Industrial Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (IWSANs) in the industrial automation is a growing trend due to flexibility, mobility and low cost. According to the current standards, such as WirelessHART and ISA100.11a, multi-channel TDMA transmission is included for reliable and deterministic communication. In this paper, we clarify the dependence of TDMA scheduling for sensors and actuators and point out the low correlation between the scheduling delay and the overall quality of control, and focus on reducing jitter in scheduling for improving quality of control and system stability. We propose a scheduling algorithm, aiming for lowing jitter and compare it with two traditional real-time scheduling schemes. Our simulation results exhibit significantly lower jitters by applying our scheduling policy than those two traditional scheduling schemes.
