Automation of reliability analysis of nonrecoverable control systems

Computer Systems and Software

An approach for automation of reliability analysis of complex-structured control systems is suggested. The approach is based on logical-probabilistic methods; reliability analysis of elements is based on state graphs. For universal description of various classes of control systems our approach uses a metamodel, which is parameterized for a specific class of systems. The suggested approach is implemented in software tool, which allows to calculate general reliability parameters and the elements influence on system reliability.
