Abstract

The paper presents the reliability assessment of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems for medical operations in Zaria. The part stress method was used to assess the reliability. Data on the failure of an APC BK650MI UPS model were used as a case study. Special consideration was given to factors like environment, quality of utility and service personnel, and the results showed that there is a relatively low reliability of the system, for medical operations in Zaria than the country for which the system was designed (USA).
