Abstract

In many cases, systems are required to provide a specified capacity such as the case of power distribution system. A system fails when its capacity does not meet the required minimum capacity. In this paper, we investigate reliability estimation of capacity-c-out-of-n pairs:G Balanced systems which consist of units in a balanced spatial configuration. When one of the units fails its load is shared among the remaining units. The load shared by each operating unit affects its reliability and hence the system reliability. We incorporate load sharing effect on reliability of individual units into the estimation of system reliability. Higher load sharing has adverse effect on system reliability as demonstrated using a numerical example.
