The IEC 61499 standard is designed for distributed control and proposes new visual form of programming using block diagrams with embedded state machines and unlimited hierarchical nesting and distribution across networking devices. Such visual programs require new methods of automatic syntactic and semantic analysis. This paper proposes a new approach to semantic analysis using multiple-layered ontological knowledge representation and rule-based inference engine. Its working is demonstrated on example. © 2005-2012 IEEE.

This paper deals with refactoring of execution control charts of IEC 61499 basic function blocks as a means to improve the engineering support potential of the standard in development of industrial control applications. The main purpose of the refactoring is removal of arcs without event inputs. Extended refactoring, proposed in this paper, also helps to get rid of potential deadlock states. The ECC refactoring is implemented as a set of graph transformation rules. A prototype has been implemented using the AGG software tool. The refactoring can help in implementing equivalent transformation of control programs without introducing errors. © 2006 IEEE.

In recent years, requirements for interoperability, flexibility, and reconfigurability of complex automation industry applications have increased dramatically. The adoption of service-oriented architectures (SOAs) could be a feasible solution to meet these challenges. The IEC 61499 standard defines a set of management commands, which provides the capability of dynamic reconfiguration without affecting normal operation. In this paper, a formal model is proposed for the application of SOAs in the distributed automation domain in order to achieve flexible automation systems. Practical scenarios of applying SOA in industrial automation are discussed. In order to support the SOA IEC 61499 model, a service-based execution environment architecture is proposed. One main characteristic of flexibility-dynamic reconfiguration-is also demonstrated using a case study example. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper presents an introductory step in the automatic generation of distributed control software for power distribution automation systems based on Ontology Driven Engineering enabled by industrial standards IEC61850 and IEC61499. The novelty of this approach is the ability of automatically generating the logical connections between the logical nodes. The paper covers the several stages of the transformation process, such as developing the IEC61850 ontology and the ontology transformation rules. The developed IEC61850 ontology includes the logical nodes descriptions and additional contextual relations between the logical nodes which is lacking in the IEC61850 SCL configuration language. Then, the IEC61850 ontology is transformed to an existing IEC61499 ontology, adding classes of IEC61850 logical nodes as IEC61499 function blocks in the IEC61499 ontology. The means of the transformation of the ontologies is based on the eSWRL sematic web rules language, an extension to the rule language SWRL. The end result is the development of an IEC61850 ontology and a set of eSWRL rules which facilitates the ontology transformation. © 2014 IEEE.

Agent technology in the power system domain is the realm of theory and laboratory simulation. Agent-based systems, due to their complexity of concept and design, may appear difficult to implement and maintain, and hence more expensive, which is a prohibiting factor against using the new technology. Designing a decision-making system for an agent is one of the most complex tasks in the development of agent-based systems. Designing a decision-making system enabling proactive behaviours while maintaining reasonable complexity is a challenge. This paper proposes an deliberative decision making system for an industrial agent which allows pro-active behaviour of the agent while maintaining reasonable complexity. It employs a combination of practical and procedural reasoning principles. The formal definition of the proposed deliberative layer is derived in the paper. The procedural reasoning is based on IEC 61850 Logical Node concept and implemented with IEC 61499 reference architecture. The proposed agent architecture is demonstrated on the Fault Location Isolation and Supply Restoration application and validated via so-simulation with Matlab model of the sample distribution network. © 2014 IEEE.
