In this paper we present a new theoretical model to assess the performance of a class of batch scheduling orders in a forward DVB-S2 satellite link. The scheduling order in a DVB-S2 link will determine the order in which IP packets are transmitted to the receivers and thus determines the amount of required padding and sub-optimal transmissions. The validity of the model is investigated by various simulation runs which show a very close agreement with the theoretical model. Using this model we also identify the optimal scheduling order within this class of orders, given that some mild and realistic conditions on the modulation and coding schemes apply.
