A Study on the Availability Evaluation with Failure Density Function of Equipment of Small-scale Plant Lee, Hongcheol; Hwang, Inju;
The investigation on the verification of availability simulation for small-scale plant has been carried out. This study focuses on the availability variation induced by number of equipment and iteration with failure density function. The equipment classification of small-scale plant and failure type and the methodologies on Monte-Carlo simulation are established. The availability deviation with programs showed under Max. 1.7% for the case of normal function. This method could be used to availability evaluation of small-scale plant, but calibration of the failure density function is necessary for general application.
