While the dynamic thermal management problem is closely related to the dynamic power management problem, it has its own distinct features. In this paper, the authors study the feasibility checking problem for real-time periodic task sets under the peak temperature constraint. They show that the traditional scheduling approach, i.e. to repeat the schedule that is feasible through the range of one hyper period, does not apply any more. They then present new necessary and sufficient conditions to check the feasibility of real-time schedules.
