Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Unit reliability measures are evaluated for power plants facing partial outages and variable demand. Formulating the problem as an imbedded Markov Chain, several reliability criteria are developed for a 3-state unit with generally-distributed demand periods and exponentially distributed operation and repair times. The model developed is applied for a sample unit using realistic data to estimate the demand, no-demand, up-time and down-time distributions.
