Evaluation of Response Time in Ethernet-based Automation Systems

Abstract : This paper presents a method to assess response time of automation system architectures including industrial switched Ethernet networks using client/server protocols. This method relies upon modeling of the behavior of the components of these architectures in the form of Hierarchical Timed Colored Petri Nets and upon simulation of these models. A case study exemplifies the method and shows how it can facilitate design of automation systems including this kind of industrial Ethernet networks.
