A Novel Capacity Evaluation Model for Functional Control Sector
Abstract— With rapid developing of the civil aviation recently, an increasing traffic flow exerts much pressure on airspace resource, which leads to crowded sectors and heavy workload for controllers. In order to make better use of airspace resources, keep balance between the controllers’ workload among different sectors, a novel capacity evaluation model for functional control sector was proposed in this paper. This paper firstly analyzes the factors involved for functional sectors. Then a functional sector division method based on the controller workload model was given to balance of controller workload. The proposed model is verified with an example of Kunming Control Sector at Southwest of China. The results show that the proposed functional sectors are more effective for the safe and stable operation of the control sector.
