Dynamic power management (DPM) refers to the use of runtime strategies in order to achieve a tradeoff between the performance and power consumption of a system and its components. We present an approach to analysing stochastic DPM strategies using probabilistic model checking as the formal framework. This is a novel application of probabilistic model checking to the area of system design. This approach allows us to obtain performance measures of strategies by automated analytical means without expensive simulations. Moreover, one can formally establish various probabilistically quantified properties pertaining to buffer sizes, delays, energy usage etc., for each derived strategy
