In this paper, an energy aware dynamic voltage and frequency selection (EA-DVFS) algorithm is proposed. The EA-DVFS algorithm adjusts the processor's behavior depending on the summation of the stored energy and the harvested energy in a future duration. Specifically, if the system has sufficient energy, tasks are executed at full speed; otherwise, the processor slows down task execution to save energy. Simulation results show that when the utilization is low, the EA-DVFS algorithm gives a deadline miss rate that is at least 50% lower than the one given by the lazy scheduling policy. Similarly, when the workload is low, the minimum storage size is reduced by at least 25%.
