Structural Translation of Time Petri Nets into Timed Automata

Abstract : In this paper, we consider Time Petri Nets (TPN) where time is associated with transitions. We give a formal semantics for TPNs in terms of Timed Transition Systems. Then, we propose a translation from TPNs to Timed Automata (TA) that preserves the behavioural semantics (timed bisimilarity) of the TPNs. For the theory of TPNs this result is two-fold: i) reachability problems and more generally TCTL model-checking are decidable for bounded TPNs; ii) allowing strict time constraints on transitions for TPNs preserves the results described in i). The practical applications of the translation are: i) one can specify a system using both TPNs and Timed Automata and a precise semantics is given to the composition; ii) one can use existing tools for analysing timed automata (like KRONOS or UPPAAL or CMC) to analyse TPNs.
