In this paper, we consider the system-wide energy management prob-
lem for a set of periodic real-time tasks running on a DVS-enabled
processor. Our solution uses a generalized power model, in which
frequency-dependent and frequency-independent power components
are explicitly considered. Further, variations in power dissipations
and on-chip/off-chip access patterns of different tasks are encoded in
the problem formulation. Using this generalized power model, we
show that it is possible to obtain analytically the task-level energy-
efficient speed below which DVS starts to affect overall energy con-
sumption negatively. Then, we formulate the system-wide energy
management problem as a non-linear optimization problem and pro-
vide a polynomial-time solution. We also provide a dynamic slack
reclaiming extension which considers the effects of slow-down on
