Empirical methods for estimating workload capacity
Bailey, Michael P.

We explore experimental procedures for comparing the capabilities of complex discrete event service systems. Instead of measuring system capability by analyzing or simulating the system with a constant rate of arriving work, system capability is measured as the maximum rate of work arrival for which the system has a steady state. Hence, we seek the arrival rate which causes the system to be at full capacity. This rate is arguably the best indication of the service system's capability. We treat both work-conserving and non-work- conserving service systems, using traditional and specialized measures of system performance

Spin stabilization of the ORION satellite using a thruster attitude control system with optimal control considerations Cunningham, Janet L. (Naval Postgraduate School, 1989);The controlled system is the ORION satellite spinning about its single axis of symmetry. Hydrazine thrusters are used as the control and are modeled by ideal, constant magnitude step functions. The system is normalized and ...
