Energy conservation is important to protect available resources in the world. Computer technology is the same. In order to realize this idea in computer technology, renewable computing will be important. It is desirable for a computer to adopt technologies that are suitable to their era and environment in order to reduce their energy use. However, many computers used in business are large. It is difficult for them to adopt such technologies dynamically. For this reason, their computers are not capable of reducing their energy usage at this time. Therefore, we propose a computing system that adapts to environments and whose continued development will be made possible by replacing faulty and aging component in the system dynamically. A system whose components can easily be replaced will be achieved using the metabolic architecture. In this paper, we implement the two functions of self-recognition and fault awareness for a calculating unit in the system.
