    Abstract

    In this paper, we analyze the performance of battery power management schemes in wireless mobile devices using a queueing theory approach. We model the battery as a server with finite service capacity and data packets as customers to be served. With an intent to exploit the recharging capability of the battery when left idle, we allow the battery to go on intentional vacations during which the battery can recharge itself. The recharge thus built up can effectively increase the number of customers served (in other words, battery life can be extended). Such improved battery life performance would, however, come at the expense of increased packet delay performance. We quantify the battery life gain versus delay performance trade-off in this approach through analysis and simulations. By considering a continuous recharge model of the battery, we derive expressions for the number of customers served and the mean delay for an M/GI/1 queueing system without and with server vacations. We show that allowing intentional vacations during busy periods helps to increase battery life, and that this approach can be beneficial when applied to the traffic of delay-tolerant applications. We also propose a packet delay constrained power saving algorithm that will exploit the recharge phenomenon when packet delay constraints are imposed.
