Abstract

The intent of this paper is to discuss a reliability calculation technique, using Markov modeling of a parallel redundant system which can be repairable or non-repairable. In this paper, we will use Markov Modeling technique to provide the derivation for the mean-time-to-failure (non-repairable system) or mean-time-between-failure (repairable system) of a parallel redundant system, with different unit failure or repair rate, to evaluate the reliability and dependability of a parallel operative redundant system.
