Dynamic power management (DPM) is a technique to reduce power consumption of electronic systems by selectively shutting down idle components. DPM encompasses a set of techniques that achieves energy-efficient computation by selectively turning off system components when they are idle. In this paper, we survey several approaches to system-level dynamic power management and advantages and disadvantages of them. We used continuous-time Markov decision process to manage our systems and show how to modify buffer size of the system queue (SQ) and a technique by changing system provider (SP) parameters to reduce power consumption of the system.
