Research of Mathematical Models for Assessing the Pumping Flashtubes Failure Rate
The research provides a review and analysis of the existing mathematical model of the pumping flashtubes operational failure rate. They are used in various spheres of human activity, such as: industry (laser welding, balancing devices), medicine (laser devices, endoscopes, blood analyzers), photography (high-speed cameras). A computational assessment was carried out using a decision support system, which makes it possible to numerically determine the importance of the factors considered in the work in assessing the operational failure rate. As a result of the study, the main parameters have been determined that have the greatest impact on the pumping flashtubes dependability. Mathematical models considering these parameters have been identified. Reliable mathematical model is proposed, suitable for evaluating the dependability characteristics of pulsed pump lamps.
