Embrace the Role

Most military members agree that being a leader means being “in charge” regardless of the situation. While this axiom may hold true during the joint operation phases of “Seize the Initiative” or “Dominate”, it is not the case for steady state operations with the IA. This axiom has become a caricature of the DoD mindset in the minds of many civilian leaders. If military service members are to become more effective with IA coordination, they must understand and appreciate three dynamics to steady state operations. First, the value that our partners bring to the fight . Second, that in the steady state, DoD is not the lead agency. Third, with the overabundant emphasis of the topic in joint doctrine, most leaders*…show more content…*

A few typical underlying differences are based on their authorities, objectives, and decision making techniques. These differences account for their operating styles of collaboration, cooperation, and/or coordination; styles that some DoD members have a difficulty in comprehending.

The DoD’s most frequent steady state partner is the DoS. Furthermore, the Chief of Mission (COM) will have final say over almost every DoD operation, activity or action. Below the national level, understanding the role of the COM and the DoS Regional Bureau will facilitate understanding interaction between the diplomatic corps and the military.

The President of the United States (POTUS) issues a Letter of Instruction (LOI) to U.S. COMs that outlines the intent for in-country coordination. The COM is identified as the focal point for coordinating executive branch activities within their country of responsibility. POTUS uses the LOI to set the tone for the entire executive branch, as seen in the following declaration: “These instructions have been shared with relevant departments and agencies, and I have directed that they give you their full cooperation.” For the DoS, this means there is a synchronization responsibility to achieve a unity of effort at the country-level. The DoD has to obtain permission to conduct steady state operations, because n the end, all USG activity is coordinated through the

## Reliability And Availability Evaluation Of A System Switched

1625 Words | 7 Pagesorder to improve availability another substitute system taken from outside is used, which is guaranteed for failure free operation. Assuming failure and repair times as exponentially distributed, Expressions for the mean time to system failure (MTSF), the steady state availability and busy period for system are derived using linear first order differential equations. A particular case for the proposed system is discussed in which substitute system was not considered. Also comparison is performed graphically

An IEEE 5 bus system was used for case study which proved that the new NR method had a good convergence hence could be used for calculations for large grid with wind power. Steady state equivalent circuit for AG and DFIG were also discussed in the paper. Feijoo et.al [6] proposed two methods for simulation of wind farms with asynchronous generators for load flow analysis which were based on steady state model of induction machine. In the first model wind generator was

## Frequency Adaptive Repetitive Control Of Grid Connected Inverters

2890 Words | 12 Pagesgenerators into smarter grids. Repetitive control (RC) enables such inverters to inject high quality fundamental-frequency sinusoidal currents into the grid. However, digital RC which can get approximately no tracking error of any periodic signal in steady-state whose period is known, cannot exactly track or reject periodic signal of frequency variations. Thus digital RC would lead to a significant power quality degradation of GCIs when grid frequency varies and causes periodic signal with non-integer

The analysis of each component of the theory is as follows: Benefits of debt: Tax savings – Based on the calculations provided in the case it can be estimated that Diageo has the capability to borrow more debt to some extent without losing it credit rating. This additional debt (if required) will bring additional tax savings in the future (given that Diageo will be able to maintain positive
