In this paper, we explore the performance tradeoffs for real­
time systems with Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) capability,
when the workload includes aperiodic jobs as well as periodic
tasks. As opposed to the assumptions of early works on Real­
Time DVS or non­power­aware scheduling of hybrid task sets,
the settings require the consideration of two often­conflicting
objectives: Improving the responsiveness of aperiodic jobs and
reducing the energy consumption. We propose the composite
metric, Energy * Average Response Time, as a performance
measure in energy­aware scheduling of hybrid task sets. Then
we develop our framework that integrates Dynamic Reclaim­
ing Algorithm (DRA) and Total Bandwidth Server (TBS) mech­
anism in variable­speed settings. In addition to the static algo­
