Reasoning about Control Situations in Power Systems

A. Saleem, M. Lind

Representing Operational Modes for Situation Awareness

Denis Kirchhübel, Morten Lind, Ole Ravn
2017 Journal of Physics, Conference Series  
In this paper a consistent representation of possible configurations is deduced from the analysis of an exemplary start-up procedure by functional models.  ...  The alarm systems meant to support human operators in the diagnosis of the plant-wide situation on the other hand fail regularly in situations where these interactions of systems lead to many related alarms  ...  For the sake of readability the explicit modelling of the intention of control has been left out of the interpreted model for filling shown infigure 11.  ...

Clairvoyant: a synthesis system for production-based specification

A. Seawright, F. Brewer
1994 IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (vlsi) Systems  
Advantages of this form of specification are that the designer does not describe the control flow in terms of explicit states or control variables and that the designer does not describe a particular form  ...  The control is implicitly described via the production hierarchy, while the data-flow is described as action computations.  ...  The modeling of actions in PBS is that of arbitrary high level data-flow behaviors instead of output signal transitions and PBS targets multilevel logic models for the control.  ...
