  • To date there are no general techniques available to design Knowledge Based Discrete Event Control Systems. In this paper, a new technique is proposed which solves the problem. The generality of the technique means that the method can be applied to any complex (multi-component) Discrete Event Control problem and can easily accommodate diagnostics and reconfiguration. The technique involves firstly, defining the complex Discrete Event Control system as a colored Petri net controller and then converting colored Petri net controller into a colored Token Passing Logic Controller via Token Passing Logic (TPL) technique and finally, representing the colored Token Passing Logicmore » Controller as rules within a control knowledge base for use within a concurrent inference engine. The technique is described by considering the fundamental structures inherent in colored Petri net control design and shows how to convert these structures into a knowledge base suitable for Discrete Event Control. Moreover, a context sensitive concurrent inference engine is also proposed to ensure the correct processing of the control knowledge base. An illustrative example of how this methodology can be applied to a complex discrete event control problem is described in Part II.« less
  • The High Performance Photovoltaic Project held a Kickoff Meeting in October, 2001. This booklet contains the presentations given by subcontractors and in-house teams at that meeting. The areas of subcontracted research under the HiPer project include Polycrystalline Thin Films and Multijunction Concentrators. The in-house teams in this initiative will focus on three areas: (1) High-Performance Thin-Film Team-leads the investigation of tandem structures and low-flux concentrators, (2) High-Efficiency Concepts and Concentrators Team-an expansion of an existing team that leads the development of high-flux concentrators, and (3) Thin-Film Process Integration Team-will perform fundamental process and characterization research, to resolve the complex issuesmore » of making thin-film multijunction devices.« less
