This paper presents an efficient approach based on OBDD for the reliability analysis of a multi-state system subject to imperfect fault-coverage with combinatorial performance requirements. Since there exist dependencies between combinatorial performance requirements, we apply the Multi-state Dependency Operation (MDO) of OBDD to deal with these(More)
—Algorithms for evaluating the reliability of a complex system such as a multistate fault-tolerant computer system have become more important recently. They are designed to obtain the complete results quickly and accurately even when there exist a number of dependencies such as shared loads (reconfiguration), degradation, and common-cause failures. This(More)
—The recent literature showed that, in many cases, Ordered Binary Decision Diagram (OBDD)-based algorithms are more efficient in reliability evaluation compared to other methods such as the Inclusion-Exclusion (I-E) method and the sum of disjoint products (SDP) method. This paper presents algorithms based on OBDD to compute system failure frequencies and(More)
This paper explores real power generation planning, considering distributed generation resources and energy storage in a small standalone power system. On account of the Kyoto Protocol and Copenhagen Accord, wind and photovoltaic (PV) powers are considered as clean and renewable energies. In this study, a genetic algorithm (GA) was used to determine the(More)
