AbstractNew generations of industrial control systems offer higher performance, they are distributed, and it is very likely that they are internet connected in one way or another. These trends raise new challenges in the contexts of reliability and security. We propose a novel approach that tackles the complexity of industrial control systems at design time and run time. At design time our target is to ease the configuration and verification of controller configurations through model-driven engineering techniques together with the contract-based design paradigm. At run time the information from design time is reused in order to support a modular and distributed self-adaptive software system that aims to increase reliability and security. The industrial setting of the presented approach are control devices for hydropower plant units.
