The proposed scheduling scheme minimizes the energy consumption of a real-time task on the multi-core processor with the dynamic voltage and frequency scaling capability. The scheme allocates a pertinent number of cores to the task execution, inactivates unused cores, and assigns the lowest frequency meeting the deadline. For a periodic real-time task with consecutive real-time instances, the scheme prepares the minimum-energy solutions for all input cases at off-line time, and applies one of the prepared solutions to each real-time instance at runtime.
