Growth and increasing complexity of data processing and communications systems have expanded the requirements for reliability of the power subsystem. Reliability must be considered at the top level system design. Trade-offs between system design options can be facilitated using valid life-cycle-cost. LCC, models. Practical reliability is achieved when neither the customer nor the supplier is annoyed...
A new power supply has been developed employing both functional and component redundancy for improved reliability. Modular construction and noncatastrophic failure modes provide the capability for this supply to remain on-line until repairs can be made during regular scheduled maintenance periods.
