Duty cycle (DC) has been used to express the deterministic and stochastic aspects of spectrum usage. Specifically, a deterministic model for the mean of the duty cycle (MDC) has been proposed in a previous work. On the other hand, the observed DC (O-DC) during short time duration has randomness and a stochastic model is used to express the randomness. In this paper, we extend the conventional approach to a combined deterministic-stochastic (DS) model which represents both the deterministic and stochastic aspects. For the distribution of the O-DC, the beta distribution has been used as stochastic model, but we employ a mixture of beta distributions. The mixture-beta distribution can achieve higher accuracy but requires more capacity for data storage in spectrum usage measurements since it has a higher number of parameters than the beta distribution. For this issue, we employ regression analysis in DS-model to reduce the number of parameters while retaining the accuracy. We show the validity of DS-model based on exhaustive spectrum measurements in IEEE 802.11-based wireless local area networks.
