In this paper, we propose an optimization framework for the resource and network management in large-scale satellite communications (SATCOM) systems with stochastic and time-varying communication requests. Because further expansions of SATCOM systems are expected in the near future, it is of practical importance to develop management methodologies for efficiently and robustly operating large-scale SATCOM systems. To address this problem, in this paper, we formulate a SATCOM network optimization problem within the framework of the chance-constrained model predictive control. In this problem, we require that a joint chance constraint on the bandwidth loss rate is satisfied with a user-specified performance and probability. Because the joint chance constraint is nonlinear in design variables, we relax the constraint to a linear deterministic one for reformulating the original problem into a relaxed deterministic problem. We numerically verify that the proposed method outperforms a baseline methodology and therefore allows us to efficiently manage large-scale SATCOM systems.
