POWER SAVING USING MICROCONTROLLER

ABSTRACT

Although energy saving has increasing importance for energy-limited


microcontrollers, low power and high control performance are at odds with each other. This
project presents a simple yet efficient dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) scheme that targets
reducing CPU energy consumption while meeting control requirements. With focus on two
typical kinds of sources of workload variability, it explores a combination of time-triggered
and event-triggered mechanisms. Simulations are carried out to highlight the merits of the
proposed approach. It is argued that in comparison with traditional DVS scheme, it saves
considerably more energy while providing comparable control performance.
