Abstract:

The rapid advancement of technology in the electronic industry has created a need for solving a certain class of large nonlinear reliability problems. The Department of Defense and civilian industries when planning for the allocations of budget resources require an efficient method for solving these problems. In certain areas a specific reliability, such as with nuclear reactors, must be attainable to ensure the accomplishment of the mission or to provide necessary safety factors. The current methods used to solve these problems are very difficult and time consuming. A computer algorithm which is based on geometric programming has been developed to provide a quick, accurate, and efficient way of solving reliability problems. Keywords theses electric equipment.
