Abstract: This paper presents Differential Petri Nets, a new member of the family of Petri net models, which allow us to model continuous-time dynamic processes represented by systems of differential equations. The differential Petri net is defined through the introduction of a new kind of place and transition, namely, the differential place and the differential transition. Evolution rules are determined to render precise the simulation of hybrid systems composed by a continuous part cooperating with a discrete-event part, i.e. the typical paradigm of a supervisory control system.
