Aquest Seminari està obert a tots els estudiants i el personal del programa de doctorat. Els estudiants en el període de recerca del programa que requereixen 10 hores de formació transversal i/ específica podràn justificar 10 hores per assistència al seminari. El procediment de registre és mitjançant l'enviament d'un correu electrònic a eel.doctorat@upc.edu. Si us plau detalleu el vostre programa de doctorat si no esteu inscrit en el Programa de Doctorat en Enginyeria Electrònica.

This Seminar is open to all the students and staff of the Doctoral Program. Students in the Research Period can justify 10 hours of cross-training and / or specific having attended this seminar. The registration procedure is by sending an email to eel.doctorat@upc.edu. Please detail your Program if not enrolled at the PhD Electronic Engineering Program. 


The classes will supply the basics to perform reliability, availability and safety analysis and design on complex electro-mechanical systems. The main failure modes on electronic devices and sensors will be addressed as the main techniques for failure mode investigation. Statistical characterization of the main probability density functions and degradation models will be supplied together with practical application examples on circuit systems and electro-mechanical structures. The main reliability design techniques such as: fault tree analysis, cut set method, minimal path approach, critical block analysis for reliability will be addressed. The main Failure modes and reliability databases and handbooks as MIL-HDBK217, OREDA, BELLCORE, etc…will  be discussed and analysed in terms of failure rates models. Maintenance policies with special attention to corrective and preventive ones will be discussed in terms of advantages and disadvantages when applied to electro-mechanical systems. The main safety standards as IEC61508 and EN50129, EN50128, EN50126 will be discussed and examples in the electronic and industrial fields studied and discussed.
