Towards a SDL-DEVS simulator: multiparadigm simulation
Document typeConference report
Rights accessOpen Access
In this paper, we present the first version of a simulator that allows executing models defined using Discrete Event System Specification and models defined using Specification and Description Language. Specification and Description Language (SDL) is a graphical language, standardized under the ITU Z.100 recommendation, widely used to represent telecommunication systems, process control and real-time applications in general. Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) is a formalism widely used on the simulation field to represent Discrete Event Systems. The execution of the DEVS models is based on a transformation of the simulation model DEVS representation to an equivalent SDL representation. To do this, we propose a XML representation for the DEVS models, and a XML representation for SDL models. Also we implement an algorithm capable to perform this transformation.
