Abstract : A study was made of procedures for setting safety levels and forecasting requirements for dry batteries. Many conclusions were reached concerning use of variable safety levels, safety levels for MAP demand, causes of forecast error, and forecasting techniques. Mathematical work was done which permits estimates of system performance to be made based on the forecast errors actually experienced. (Author)
