System power analysis example

(John Lachapelle) #1

After nuch help getting to this point, I wanted to share a snapshot of an engineering power analysis done partially in outline mode but shown in map mode. Show different portions of a system and their contribution to total system power dissipation. Also estimates battery lifetime under this scenario. With $Text comments as to the operation the the scenario in various subsystems. For me at least, this has been the most extensive use I’ve made of Tinderbox, with parents/ children, agents, links, various math and data shuttling.

@jrl, that is very fascinating and clever. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

I can see using a similar approach for modeling decision paths, with gates and probabilities, to evaluate outcomes.

This is fascinating, thank you for showing what you have done.
