"In this paper, the authors provide a general framework of networked control systems. An Internet based NCS is simulated and TCP/IP communication issue of data streams in Networked Control Systems (NCS) is evaluated. The network is simulated with the ns-2 package, a widespread state-of-the-art open-source network simulator package for studying packet dynamics in networks. The ns-2 release is extended in order to simulate the transmissions of plants and controllers that are modeled by ODEs (solved via a linked package)."
