## 3. Reliability Analysis

_{i}) and 10 non-basic events (g

_{i}). An event is called a “basic event” if it cannot be broken down into simpler components. They are connected by logical gates. The example shown in Figure 7 has seven “OR” gates and four “AND” gates. Top event is an undesirable event and it is unique in the FT. Non-basic events can be repeated in the FT, but their branch must be the same. FTs provide the information required to carry out a qualitative analysis. BDDs have been successfully found in the constant search for an efficient way to simulate FTs. BDD is a direct graph representation of a Boolean function where equivalent Boolean sub-expressions are uniquely represented [52].

_{sys}(t) over time. This probability has been obtained for 20 months. It does not continue rise because there are events (periodic functions) that undergo preventive maintenance.

_{sys}to be obtained over time using different time increments to evaluate the system. This is a novelty regarding the state of the art that has resulted in increasing the accuracy of the quantitative analysis. Figure 11 shows the Q

_{sys}obtained by using a variable time increment from 3 to 9 (blue line). The time increment is five times smaller than the increment used from 9 to 20 (green line). This is an important advantage because the critical zone (marked as dashed square) can be analysed in further detail. A threshold has been arbitrarily established with probability of 0.00125 (horizontal red dashed line).

_{sys}, followed by e0015 and e014 and, finally, by e016 and e017 (see Figure 13). The criticality enables the real risk of each failure to be evaluated considering not only the contribution of the event to the global system but also the probability of the event. From Figure 13 it can be gathered that, among the most critical failures, the short circuit is the most probable event. However, the open circuit does not represent an imminent risk in spite of being a very critical failure according to Birnbaum importance.

_{sys}, followed by the events e013, e014, e015, e016 and e017. Only the Birnbaum method demonstrates that the main events are e012, e013 and e014. Therefore, the event ‘short circuit’ should be studied in detail because all the methods provide a high IM value.
