ABSTRACT
The paper deals with a model developed for a single centrifuge system working in Thermal Power Plant, Panipat (Haryana) India, which has alternate periods of operation and rest. The system may have minor, neglected and major faults. It is assumed that the occurrence of a minor fault leads to degradation of the system whereas occurrence of a major fault leads to failure of the system. The neglected faults that are in the system are generally neglected for repair during operation of the system until the system goes to rest or complete failure and the system has to be stopped on occurrence of minor fault for repair. Various measures of system effectiveness are obtained regarding the reliability and cost analysis of the system is carried out and the conclusions on the basis of the graphical studies are given.
