ABSTRACT

The present paper discusses the reliabilty analysis for Feeding System of a Sugar Plant Unit. The Feeding System consists of four subsystems arranged in series and parallel combinations. The subsystems cane unloader units working with parallel unit combinations while remaining three subsystems are prone to failure. The mathematical model of Feeding System has been developed using Markov birth –death Process based upon probabilistic approach. The differential equations have been developed on the basis of probabilistic approach using transition diagram. A transition diagram representing interrelationship among the full working, reduced capacity and failed states has been developed. The effect of failure and repair rates of each subsystem on the system availability has been determined.

Key words: Performance Modeling; Probabilistic approach; Markov approach; Transition diagram.
