1.Introduction

This document describes the MTBF calculation for Sungrow inverter SG250HX based on SR-332, Issue 4.
This document is intended to be used by the specific addressees. No part of this document may be reproduced or

2.List of MTBF Calculation

Reference Standard: Telcordia SR-332, Issue 4, the Telcordia Technologies Special Report for reliability prediction
procedure for electronic equipment.

2.1. Analysis Method


Failure rate of device in SR-332 Issue 4 is defined as:

𝜆𝑆𝑆𝑖 = 𝜆𝐺𝑖 𝜋𝑄𝑖 𝜋𝑆𝑖 𝜋 𝑇𝑖


9
Where 𝜆𝑆𝑆𝑖 : Steady-state failure rate for device i, Failure rate=Failures/10 Hours=Failures *FITs
𝜆𝐺𝑖 : Mean generic steady-state failure rate for device i
𝜋𝑄𝑖 : Quality Factor of device i
𝜋𝑆𝑖 : Electrical Stress Factor of device i
𝜋 𝑇𝑖 : Temperature Factor of device i

The failure rate prediction for a unit is based on the failure rates predicted for its device components. This prediction
technique is commonly known as the “Parts Count” method in which the mean unit failure rate 𝜆𝑆𝑆 is assumed to be
equal to the sum of the device failure rates.
𝑛

𝜆𝑆𝑆 = ∑ 𝑁𝑖 𝜆𝑆𝑆𝑖
𝑖=1

Where 𝜆𝑆𝑆 : Unit steady-state failure rate, 𝜆𝑆𝑆𝑖 : Steady-state failure rate for device i
𝑁𝑖 : Quantity of device i in the unit, n : Number of device categories in the unit

The relationship between failure rate and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) (hours) is:

2.2. MTBF Calculation

Series Configuration: All items must work for the system to work. As shown below, the system fails if either Block A
or Block B fails.

Parallel Configuration: Items are considered to be redundant. As shown below, the system will continue to function if
either Block A or Block B fails.
