Abstract: In this paper, we investigate conditions for non-ambiguous behaviour of a timed Petri net which also contains immediate transitions. Non-ambiguity of the net behaviour means that it is uniquely determined by a given set of control parameters defined in this paper. To this effect, we describe two semantics, that deal with non-determinism in different ways. The first policy, called the limit policy considers immediate transitions as limits of timed transitions. The second policy, called the global priority policy defines a dynamical order among the transitions and fires them along that order. The paper also investigates the advantages, the drawbacks and the relations between those two policies.
Keywords: Timed Petri nets, Semantics, Nondeterminism.
