Paper Abstract

This paper discusses some of the implementation issues associated with autonomous management of the Space Station electric energy system. In particular, an executive based structure is proposed to handle the scheduling and real time control of the energy system. The major pieces of this structure are a user interface, the executive itself, a scheduler for the loads and storage, and a real time controller. The least developed of the technologies necessary to realize autonomous management is the scheduler and hence is given primary focus. This paper proposes using the simulated annealing algorithm for the solution of the scheduling problem and presents some preliminary results using this algorithm.
