Issue No.01 - January (1971 vol.20)
A computer control system simulation method utilizing two computers is presented. One is a control computer operating under almost actual conditions. The other is a multiprogrammed computer that simulates the plant. The time taken by the control computer to compute the control variables can be a function of the plant state. An optimum control example illustrating the application of the method is given.
Control systems, optimum control, program timing, satellite computer, simulation, software testing, variable sampling rate.
