The Prediction Oriented Analysis of Mechatronic Machine Structures in Terms of the Signal Stream Flow
The article describes an approach dedicated to a hybrid representation of mechatronic systems combining matrix and block notations. The main attention is focused on the identification of relationships between mechatronic machines in respect of functional reliability (analysed in the form of block and digraph notations) and rules that allow for the simplification of the reliability function in the systems of machines connected in parallel, series and complex arrangement. The author has adopted a functional representation based on system demonstration employing a binary function of reliability in which the equation is determined based on the method for setting minimum paths in the graph (structural representation of each subsystem). The introduced assumption allows reducing any structure to a serial connection of functional blocks. The author of the paper has also described a manner of implementation in real systems. This article does not include the description of the method used for determining the reliability function, but only theoretical assumptions used in case of identifying functional dependencies.
