Abstract

Most of the reliability analyses performed today assume that the system being considered is either in the operating state or in the failed state. However, there are systems in use which are considered to be operational even when they are in certain degraded states. An example is art electrostatic precipitator. This paper will take advantage of the special physical structure of a precipitator to obtain a mathematical model for its reliability. With appropriate modifications, this methodology can be extended to other systems. © 1981 Air & Waste Management Association.
