Behaviour Analysis of Availability of Feeding System in the Sugar Industry
Dr. Zeenat Zaidi
Abstract: This paper explains a methodology to study the transient and steady state behaviour of the feeding system in the sugar industry. The mathematical formulation of the system is done with the help of Markov method using mnemonic rule. The failure and repair rates of the subsystem are taken as constant. Availability in the transient state is evaluated with the help of matrix method using C- program. Numerical results are presented with the help of MATLAB (22.214.171.1247 R2009a) to illustrate the steady state behaviour of the system. The bottlenecks of the system are identified through availability analysis of feeding system which could help in improving its availability. And this can be considered to be useful for determining the best possible maintenance strategies.
