Implementation and evaluation of the dynamic distributed real time industrial protocol (D²RIP)

Kaya, Adem
The contemporary large-scale and complex industrial control systems such as manufacturing systems, power plants or chemical processes are realized as distributed systems. Since different controller nodes are usually physically distributed, their coordination and information exchange is commonly realized via industrial communication networks (ICNs). In the last decade, there is an ongoing research effort in both academic and industrial fields to employ Ethernet for industrial communications due to its wide acceptance and use in home and office networks. Although the conventional Ethernet technology is low-cost and very high-speed its nondeterministic behavior does not support real-time traffic. In this thesis we present the design, implementation and evaluation of the novel ICN protocol D²RIP (Dynamic Distributed Real-time Industrial Communication Protocol) that was proposed in previous work. D²RIP is a fully distributed protocol over shared-medium Ethernet with COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) hardware and provides real-time message delivery guarantees, supports non-real-time traffic. As a distinctive feature in comparison to other ICNs over Ethernet that only support static allocation of real-time and non-real-time bandwidth, D²RIP allows for dynamic allocation of the network capacity among the participating nodes by exploiting knowledge about the deterministic system behavior of industrial systems.


Implementation and evaluation of the dependability plane for the dynamic distributed dependable real time industrial protocol ((D₃RIP))
Sezer, Ömer Berat; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Kalus Werner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real Time Ethernet Industrial Protocol (D3RIP) is a real time industrial communication protocol that runs over shared-medium Ethernet with COTS hardware. The protocol consists of an interface layer that enables time slotted communication and a coordination layer that guarantees collision avoidance and timely delivery of real time messages generated by the control application. At the current development stage, these two layers of the protocol are fully implemented and tested. T...
Implementation and evaluation of a synchronous time-slotted medium access protocol for networked industrial embedded systems
Gözcü, Ahmet Korhan; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real-time Industrial communication Protocol family (D3RIP), has been proposed in the literature considering the periodic or event-based traffic characteristics of the industrial communication networks. D3RIP framework consists of two protocol families: Interface Layer (IL) protocol family, which is responsible for providing the accurate time-division multiple access (TDMA) on top of a shared-medium broadcast channel, and Coordination Layer (CL), which is defined to fulfill the...
Tool support for worst case end to end delay analysis of AFDX networks
Efe, Orhun; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
Avionics Full Duplex Switched Ethernet (AFDX) is among the major technological components used in avionics systems. Since its publication, AFDX has spread out rapidly and has been deployed in major aircrafts such as Airbus A400M, Boeing 787, Bombardier C Series, etc. In AFDX networks, data is exchanged between end systems by utilizing tunnels. For certification purposes, finding a safe upper bound is required in transmission process. UPPAAL is already shown to be useful for performing such a delay analysis ...
Unit commitment with DGs in distribution systems
Bayat, Mohsen; Erkmen, İsmet; Şahiner, Mehmet Cem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
In this thesis the impact of distributed generation (DG) on the total cost of generating electricity is investigated. A distribution system including PV (PV) generators is considered.A mixed integer linear programming based Unit Commitment algorithm is used to optimally schedule the PV generation and other conventional generation resources for 24 hours. Afterwards, a distribution system power flow algorithm is utilized to check whether the UC solution is within the thermal limitations of the distribution li...
Innovation, networking and the new industrial clusters: the characteristics of networks and local innovation capabilities in the Turkish industrial clusters
Eraydin, A; Armatli-Koroglu, B (2005-07-01)
Elaborating on the literature on industrial districts, this paper suggests that innovation and networking are the two key issues, which provide the new generation industrial clusters' competitive capacity in the globalization process. The paper presents the findings on the innovative and networking capabilities of the three important industrial clusters of Turkey based on the data collected from the sample firms in each of these industrial clusters through in-depth interviews. The findings clearly show the ...
