Hierarchical Performance Modeling and Simulation of Scalable Computer System
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 1~16
The performance of a computer system depends on the system architecture and workload, and the high performance required in many applications can be achieved by the scalability of the system architecture and workload. This paper presents scalable workload, a performance metric of scalable speedup and hierarchical modeling for the scalable computer system as well as the development of the object-oriented simulator spmplC++ Which is an advanced C++ version of the discrete event-driven simulation environment smplE. In addition, this paper presents two examples of applying scalable speedup, hierarchical modeling and simulator smplC++ to analyze the performance effect of the sclcbility in a multiprocessor system and a network-based client/server system.
DEVS Simulation of Purchase Strategies for Material Stock Control System
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 17~30
One of many factors that influences the profit of an enterprise is the amount of the stock in an enterprise. When the stock amounts are optimal the economic burden of the enterprise decreases which in turn results in the optimum number of employment and spatial utilization of storages. The purpose of this study is the simulation modeling of a material stock control system using DEVS models in order to get the most suitable stock amounts. The stock within an enterprise is built by the orders from outside world. The effect on the stock by the factors such as order, delivery, and production components has been analyzed based on simulation results.
A Causality Error Prevention Scheme In The Hybrid Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 31~40
A hybrid simulation model consists of real physical entities as well as simulated ones. It also contains logical processes for decision making for each operation units, a group of the entities. During the execution of such simulations, the physical and the logical processes consume real clock time while the activity durations of the simulated ones are generated. Due to the inherent chracteristics of the subjects of the communication channels. Since one can not undo an real event already taken place, the traditional central clock approach is used for the synchronization of the events(Kim). However, there are still chances of causality errors due to the randomness in the communication delays. This error is not found in the distributed pure simulations. This paper explains the error in details and proposes a prevention scheme that is simple to implement.
Simulation of Power IGBT and Transient Analysis
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 41~60
The IGBT(Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) is a power semiconductor device that has gained acceptance among circuit design engineers for motor drive and power converter applications. IGBT devices(International Rectifier, Proposed proposed model etc) have the best features of both power MOSFETs and power bipolar transistors, i.e., efficient voltage gate drive requirememts and high current density capability. When designing circuit and systems that utilize IGBTs or other power semiconductor devices, circuit simulations are needed to examine how the devices affect the behavior of the circuit. The interaction of the IGBT with the load circuit can be described using the device model and the state equation of the load circuit. The voltage rise rate at turn-off for inductive loads varies significantly for IGBTs with different base life times, and this rate of rise is important in determing the voltage overshoot for a given series resistor-inductor load circuit. Excessive voltage overshoot is potentially destructive, so a snubber protection circuit may be required. The protection circuit requirements are unique for the IGBT and can be examined using the model. The IGBT model in this paper is verified by comparing the results of the model with experimented results for various circuit operating conditions. The model performs well and describes experimented results accurately for the range of static and dynamic condition in which the device is intended to be operated.
A Study on the Structures for Efficient Event Queues
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 61~68
The performance of event-driven logic simulation frequently used for VLSI design verification depends on the data structures for event queues. This paper improves the existing Timing Wheel as a data structure for an event queue. In case of the use of B+ tree, an efficient node degree is also presented based on the experiment results. A new Timing Wheel index structure, which eliminates the insertion and deletion overhead of B+ tree, is proposed and analyzed.
Analysis of Geared-Motor Manufacturing System Using Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 69~78
Simulation is generally used for the performance analysis and optimization of manufacturing systems. Therefore in this paper using the simulation techniques we obtain the information about the efficiency improvement and the optimization. Because simulation optimization method is subjected to the applied field and environment the general simulation optimization method does not exist. So we do not take the fixed optimization procedure but suggest the alternative one which is modified for applied field. This procedure supplies the optimized simulation information and helps improve the productivity of Geared-Motor assembly line. In order to optimize the manufacturing system we use two simulation languages, FACTOR/AIM and SLAMSYSTEM. The former gives the abundant output information. The latter gives the flexibility in simulation modeling.
An Efficient Parallel Simulation Algorithm on Recursive Feedforward Network
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 79~92
In this paper we present an efficient parallel simulation algorithm in recursive feedforward network(RFN) which can reduce the simulation delay while decreasing the number of null messages compared to the previous result. As a preprocessing step, we first determine the group and type of each oupput channel for the nodes using DFS(Depth First Search) algorithm, and show that the number of null messages as well as the simulation scheme. By the new scheme we decide if null messages are sent to the output channels or not according to the group to which it belongs.
