Process Specification

Verify If current temperature is below the specified value

get specified_temp_level;

Read current_temp

if(current_temp < specified_temp_level)

activate_heating_unit = true

else

activate_heating_unit = false

Current temperature is compared with the specified temperature;

if the current temperature falls below the specified value; the heating process

is activated; which requires a number of processes.

Verify availability of heating components to activate heating

get heating_unit_fans_status

get heating_unit_status

get gas_meter_supply_status

get heating_ducts_status

get time

get day

if(heating_unit_fans_status = available

AND heating_unit_status = available

AND gas_meter_supply_status = available

AND heating_ducts_status != manually_closed){

open_ducts = true

start_gas_flow =true

start_fans =true

start_heating_unit=true

}

Heating can only start if the temperature falls below the specified value, and the components are available. This is dependent on time and day.

Combined process to initiate heating

get specified_temp_level;

Read current_temp

while(current_temp < specified_temp_level) {

get heating_unit_fans_status

get heating_unit_status

get gas_meter_supply_status

get heating_ducts_status

get time

get day

if(heating_unit_fans_status = available

AND heating_unit_status = available

AND gas_meter_supply_status = available

AND heating_ducts_status != manually_closed){

open_ducts = true

start_gas_flow =true

start_fans =true

start_heating_unit=true

}

Read current_temp

if(manual_Input)

break;

}

This code block uses a while loop to represent the continuous nature of the process of checking the temperature, and taking corrective measures if the temperature falls below the set limit. The code runs in an endless loop and can only be interrupted if a manual input is encountered; in which case the execution breaks the loop.

Store New Temperature Value

Get current_temperature;

new_temperature = current_temperature

This updates the new temperature value with the current temperature.

Open Heating Duct

Get heating_duct_status

if(heating_duct_status != manually_closed)

heating_duct_status = open

A heating duct can only be opened if it was not manually closed. This code checks if the duck was closed manually before opening the duck.

System Control Panel

Listening and executing commands

new_command = command

switch(command)

{

caseConfigure Temperature Detector:

display options:Celsius , Fahrenheit

get user_selection;

set temperature_metrics = user_selection

break;

Case Set Heating Program:

set day = get selected_day;

set time_period = get_time_period;

set min_temp = get_ temp_lower_limit;

set max_temp = get_temp_upper_limit;

save settings;

break;

CaseManually Change Heating program:

set day =get selected_day;

set time_period =get time_period;

set min_temp = get_temperature_entered;

Case Turn System Off:

close_ducts

stop_gas_supply

stop _heating_fan

stop_heating_unit

set heating_fan_status = unavailable

set heating_unit_status = unavailable

displayducts_status

displaygas_supply_status

display heating_fan_status

display heating_unit_status

break;

Case Turn System On:

open_ducts

set heating_fan_status = available

set heating_unit_status = available

displayducts_status

displaygas_supply_status

display heating_fan_status

display heating_unit_status

}

Data Dictionary

Schedule Events

Name

Description

Every 5 minutes, for duck current state

An event initiated by the system after every 5 minutes to check the status of the heating duck

Every 30sec, for Gas Meter Supply Status

An event initiated by the system after every 30 seconds to retrieve the status of the Gas Meter Supply Status

Every 30 Sec for Heating Unit status

An event initiated by the system after every 30 seconds to retrieve the current status of the heating unit
