Scaling Properties


Scaling Properties The power and/or energy available to a device may vastly differ, from kilowatts to microwatts, from essentially unlimited to hundreds of microjoules.

Instead of defining classes or clusters, we simply state, using the International System of Units (SI units), an approximate value for one or both of the quantities listed in Table:

NameDefinitionSI Unit
PsSustainable average power available for the device over the time it is functioningW (Watt)
EtTotal electrical energy available before the energy source is exhaustedJ (Joule)
