Switch allocation problems in power distribution systems
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2015-01-01)
Reliability analysis of power systems has been attracting increasing attention. Regulatory agencies establish reliability standards that, if infringed, result in costly fines for the utility suppliers. A special concern ...
Reliability paper Use of copula functions for the reliability of series systems
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide a new method to estimate the reliability of series system by using copula functions. This problem is of great interest in industrial and engineering applications. ...
Reliability assessment of energy limited systems using sequential montecarlo simulation
This paper explains why the reliability assessment of energy limited systems requires more detailed models for primary generating resources availability, internal and external generating dispatch and customer demand than ...
Reliability as an added-value factor in an automotive clutch system
(John Wiley & Sons LtdChichesterInglaterra, 2008)
Reliability-based design optimization strategies based on FORM: a review
(Associação Brasileira de Engenharia e Ciências Mecânicas - ABCM, 2012)
In deterministic optimization, the uncertainties of the structural system (i.e. dimension, model, material, loads, etc) are not explicitly taken into account. Hence, resulting optimal solutions may lead to reduced reliability ...
Reliability-based evaluation of design code provisions for circular concrete-filled steel columns
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
This paper presents an investigation of design code provisions for steel-concrete composite columns. The study covers the national building codes of United States, Canada and Brazil, and the transnational EUROCODE. The ...
Reliability concepts applied to cutting tool change time
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
This paper presents a reliability-based analysis for calculating critical tool life in machining processes. It is possible to determine the running time for each tool involved in the process by obtaining the operations ...
Improving power system reliability through optimization via simulation
Due to the stochastic nature of equipment failures, the accurate assessment of power system reliability is a complex task. Consequently, the optimal selection of new network infrastructure to improve reliability is even ...
