Reliability Analysis and Optimization of Constant Current Remote Power Feeding System of Seafloor Observatory Network
Study on the deterioration of the constant current remote feeding system throughout the life of the structure is always one of the most important issues in seafloor observatory network reliability engineering. Relationship between current-to-current convertor subsystem and amount of loads in branch line is described by introducing failure rate factor. Multistate reliability model of remote power feeding system has been set up and solved by genetic algorithms. Simulation results show that as the load configuration in trunk line and branch line changing, there exists best combination maximizes the system reliability, besides, appropriate increasing amount of loads in branch line can optimize the preventive strategy.
