In real-time embedded system, that must carry their own power source and cannot depends on the power outlet on the wall, apart from feasibly schedule the set of tasks, power management is also the major issue because without power the system is useless. In this paper, the authors propose a harvesting aware real-time scheduling algorithm with variable speed assignment scheme to set of periodic tasks aims to reduce the energy consumption while feasibly schedule the set of periodic tasks within their deadline. This can be done by DVS (Dynamic Voltage and frequency Selection), executing the task with the speed such that a task can consume as much energy which is quite sufficient to complete it successfully within its deadline.
