1 Example The probability of successful start of a certain engine is ¼ and four trials are to be made. Evaluate the individual and cumulative probabilities of success in this case. n = 4, p = ¼, q = 1 ¼ = ¾ (p+q) 4 = p 4 + 4p 3 q + 6p 2 q 2 + 4pq 3 + q 4 Number of Cumulative successes failures Individual probability probability 0 4 q 4 = (3/4) 4 = 81/256 81/ pq 3 = 4(1/4)(3/4) 3 = 108/ / p 2 q 2 = 6(1/4) 2 (3/4) 2 = 54/ / p 3 q = 4(1/4) 3 (3/4) = 12/ / p 4 = (1/4) 4 = 1/ /256 Σ = 1 Binomial Distribution Application Example: It is known that, in a certain manufacturing process, 1% of the products are defective. If the a customer purchases 200 of these products selected at random, what is the expected value and standard deviation of the number of defects? n = 50 q = 0.01 p = = 0.99 E(defects) = n.q = 200 x 0.01 = 2 σ(defects) = npq = 200 x 0.01 x 0.99 =
2 Example: The manufacturing company has a policy of replacing, freeofcharge, all defective products that are purchased. If the product manufacturing cost is $10 per unit and each product is sold for $15, how much profit is made from a sale of 1000 products? q = 0.01 For 1000 products, n = 1000 Expected # of defects, E(defects) = n.q = 10 Therefore, 1010 products must be manufactured to sell 1000 products. Manufacturing cost = $10 x 1010 = $10,100 Income = $15 x 1000 = $15,000 Profit = $15,000  $10,100 = $4900 Profit per unit = $4900/1000 = $4.90 Example: If the company decides to increase the manufacturing cost to $10.05 per unit in order to decrease the probability of defects to 0.1%, q = For 1000 products, n = 1000 Expected # of defects, E(defects) = n.q = 1 Therefore, 1001 products must be manufactured to sell 1000 products. Manufacturing cost = $10.05 x 1001 = $10, Income = $15 x 1000 = $15,000 Profit = $15,000  $10, = $ Profit per unit = $ /1000 = $4.94 2
3 Effect of Redundancy Consider a system consisting of 4 identical components, each having a failure probability of 0.1. q = 0.1 (p = 0.9) n = 4 (p+q) 4 = p 4 + 4p 3 q + 6p 2 q 2 + 4pq 3 + q 4 System state Individual probability all components working p 4 = (0.9) 4 = working, 1 failed 4p 3 q = 4(0.9) 3 (0.1) = working, 2 failed 6p 2 q 2 = 6(0.9) 2 (0.1) 2 = working, 3 failed 4pq 3 = 4(0.9)( 0.1) 3 = all components failed q 4 = (0.1) 4 = Σ = 1 Consider 4 criteria all components required for success (no redundancy) components required for success (partial redundancy) 2 components required for success (partial redundancy) 1 component required for success (full redundancy) System reliability, R = = = System with Derated States Consider a generation plant with two 10 MW units, each having a probability of failure (forced outage rate) of 10%. q = 0.1, p = 0.9, n = 2 Binomial Distribution: Capacity Outage Probability Table: (p + q) 2 = p 2 + 2pq + q 2 Units Out Cap Out (MW) Cap In (MW) Probability Cum. Prob If the generation plant operates to supply a 15 MW load, what is the probability of load loss (system failure)?
