    Increasing reliability and assessing remaining life of the switchgear is one of the most important tasks in order to ensure proper work of a power system. Replacement of the most critical circuit breakers represents a good basis for increasing the reliability of the energy system. This paper...

    A definition of the term "reliability" is presented. It refers to the ability of a component or system to be operable when it is needed. It is quantified as the probability that the device or system has not failed at a given time. The equation of the survived function is presented.

To avoid loss of the entire mission the damage due to such punctures must be limited to small, localized areas. This...

    In this paper, a method is proposed to estimate the reliability of process capability studies. This approach helps to determine the reliability of the process capability over the number of production shifts. This prediction helps process engineers to further study the process variability.
