Instantaneous availability (the probability that the system is operational at any time t) is calculated via renewal theory by representing the system as a 2-state stochastic process; the defined states are on-time and off-time which are combined to form the total cycle time. The analytic solution to the above problem is quite general and can be applied to any system adjusted cycle time and on-time distribution. Using this model, a numerical solution is obtained. If the on-time and cycle-time… CONTINUE READING
