Therefore, this mathematical model is designed to minimize EV waiting time for charge by using queueing theory. Queueing theory plays a major role in establishing dynamic traffic model[7].
The research of manufacturing systems uses diverse modelling techniques, e.g., simulation models [13], queueing theory and Petri nets [9].
At present, queueing theory, a major branch of operations research that deals with mathematical models of waiting lines using the apparatus of probability theory, is held to be the principal mathematical tool to describe production processes (e.g., [14]).
An emergency department patient flow model based on queueing theory principles, Academic Emergency Medicine, 2013, 20(9):939-946.
Therefore, we provide an analytical model based on results from the queueing theory of an OpenFlow-based mobile network.
In the case of dynamic methods, Queueing Theory and system simulation are methods mostly used to evaluate the load capacity of rail transit station (Table 1).
In this paper, we employ queueing theory. Queuing models are suitable in a variety of environments ranging from common daily life scenarios to complex service and business processes, operations research problems, or computer and communication systems.
The analyses of the model show that, by investigating and exploiting the delay characteristics of users in CRN using queueing theory, a significant improvement in the optimal allocation of resources for the heterogeneous buffered CRN can be realised.
In fact, in most of the literature on queueing theory, the service rate is homogeneous; that is, it is a constant.
Fluid queueing model, which is dedicated to deal with the correlation structure in network traffic and classical queueing theory, which focuses on the packet level burstiness.
