On Reliability Function of a Parallel System with Three Renewable Components
Considered system consists of three renewable components that are connected in parallel. The components are described by continuous time independent alternating processes. The sojourn times in the operative state for all components have exponential distributions. The sojourn times in the failed state have arbitrary absolute continuous distributions. All sojourn times are independent. The system is working at time t if at least one component is working. We consider a problem of computation of system reliability on given time interval for the known initial states of the components. Non-stationary and stationary regimes are considered.
