In this paper, the authors focus on power and thermal management for multicore embedded systems with solar energy harvesting as the power source and a periodic hard real-time task set as the workload. They design a novel semi-dynamic scheme, which reschedules tasks at the beginning of specified time epochs. By rejecting job instances of certain tasks until the next rescheduling point, their scheduler dispatches a subset of tasks that comply with the predicted energy budget and thermal conditions.
