It is really challenging to develop large scale, real time embedded systems that are fault adaptive and tolerant. The interactions between different components of the system increase with the size of the system, and can be difficult to trace as the system grows in size. Well designed simulations can play a vital role in understanding such large scale systems. Any number of fault scenarios can be generated and tested in a simulation environment, safely without risking the actual system.

This thesis describes the development of such simulations using Matlab Simulink and Stateflow. These simulations are developed using behavioral and structural models of components at the desired level of modeling detail. These models are specifically designed for the proposed system that will be used in BTeV project, a Fermi National Laboratory’s high energy physics experiment.
