  • This talk describes implementation of classical general MIP branch-and-bound on the CM-5 family of MIMD systems. Computational results indicate that efficient parallel solution of many {open_quotes}real-world{close_quotes} MIP`s is now a reality. The most interesting issues relate to the degree of centralization in search control and data storage; the code is capable of centralized {open_quotes}master-slave{close_quotes} fully decentralized, or partially centralized decision making. A {open_quotes}quasidistributed{close_quotes} active-message storage scheme for subproblem nodes makes fully or partially centralized control of the search process practical even on fairly large configurations. For distributed search control, the implementation asynchronously layers a traditionally {open_quotes}SIMD{close_quotes} synchronous-style load balancing algorithmmore » over the simple randomized scheme of Karp and Zhang. On average, this combination appears to work about as well as central control, but is {open_quotes}scalable{close_quotes}. A distributed scheme for storing global heuristic {open_quotes}pseudo-cost{close_quotes} information is also presented.« less
  • Today`s power plants are no longer controlled in an uncoordinated manner by multiple individual control systems. Instead, modern power plants are controlled by a single unified Workstation based Distributed Control and Information System (DCS). This paper describes control system unification and coordination provides power plants with multiple benefits required for survival in today`s competitive marketplace. Some unification benefits are: (1) Advanced control techniques. (2) Open communication between all portions of the process. (3) Unified plant control -- control of the total generation process; not just the separate control of many individual sub processes. (4) Simplification of training, service, spare partsmore » through the use of one control and information system. (5) High resolution automated graphics providing the ability to zoom into any portion of the plant to obtain real time information and control. (6) Generation of meaningful trends and reports. The use of one common distributed control system including advanced controls and the higher computing power of workstations can provide competitive advantages through reduced operating costs, higher availability, and better operating efficiencies.« less
  • This paper discusses the methodology used to implement a feasibility study including cost estimates for incorporating independent control systems into a station-wide DCS for operation from a central control location. Systems are either incorporated directly into the DCS or datalinked into the DCS plant wide communication loop. The systems requiring consolidation include combustion and burner management control, turbine and generator control, pump control, fire protection, precipitator, sootblowing, demineralizing, fly ash handling and other miscellaneous areas. Alternate consolidation scenarios were developed from which recommended modifications to existing control room and logic rooms were made or new locations identified, based on technicalmore » feasibility and installation costs. Estimates included DCS equipment and vendor services, field devices, HVAC and UPS requirements, demolition, new equipment installation and engineering services. Final recommendations were developed and options presented for consideration. Project implementation schedules were developed including engineering, vendor fabrication, pre-outage and outage construction periods.« less
  • Consider the time system Ex(k + 1) = Ax(k) + Bu(k) where E is a singular square matrix. It is assumed that the system is either a priori regular i is regularizable by a feedback law of the form u(k) = Ky(k) + V(k). or it The problem is this: Find an input sequence which will drive x(k) from a given x(0) to a desired {open_quotes}final vector{close_quotes} x(N) in a given number of steps N while minimizing the cost. The novelty of this paper`s approach is the use of singular-value decomposition and of weighted generalized inverses.
