Methods used to evaluate reliability and availability performance of telecommunication power systems are described. The models are based on Markov chains in steady-state conditions assuming exponential distributions. The models and methods normally used have been developed further in order to obtain more numerical information on the effects of monitoring systems and operating practices of maintenance staff on power-system reliability and availability performance. A system is analyzed, and results with their dependence on various system parameters are discussed.
