This paper discusses the analysis and modelling of a control network organisation for telecommunication battery management. The battery network is managed by distributed control nodes that communicate through the local CAN network. The proposed management solution addresses the issues of local area network limitations, the distribution of intelligence at the process level, integration between the local and wide area networks and transparency between the process and user levels. Analysis of the system is crucial in estimating the capacity of the network. The key criteria of the simulation model organisation and model block design are well defined. Modelling and simulation of the proposed architecture reflects the potential capacity for managing battery requirements and network traffic.
