Applications on fault tree analysis in railway power supply systems
Ho, T.K., Chen, S.K., & Mao, B.H. (2006) Applications on fault tree analysis in railway power supply systems. In Proceedings of 5th International Conference on Traffic and Transportation Studies, Science Press, Xian.
Fault tree analysis (FTA) is presented to model the reliability of a railway traction power system in this paper. First, the construction of fault tree is introduced to integrate components in traction power systems into a fault tree; then the binary decision diagram (BDD) method is used to evaluate fault trees qualitatively and quantitatively. The components contributing to the reliability of overall system are identified with their relative importance through sensitivity analysis. Finally, an AC traction power system is evaluated by the proposed methods.
