[T.sub.man]--yearly mean time to failure removed by manoeuvres, [h/year];
In table 1 we presented the yearly mean time to failure with two components: for each subsystem and for the overall CHP.
* The yearly mean time to failure removed by repairs is higher for thermo-mechanical equipments, GCS, GTI
* The yearly mean time to failure removed by manoeuvres is lower for electrical equipments, SEVEE
* The yearly mean time to failure is the smallest for SEVC due to the high reservation of the equipment.
The sensitivity of the yearly mean time to failure for subsystems (GCS, GTI, SEVC) and for the overall CHP are presented in table 2 through 4.
Therefore the sensitivity of the yearly mean time to failure to the failure rates of equipments for SEVEE was not presented in the paper.
For that purpose we used the sensitivity of the yearly mean time to failure to the failure rates of equipments.
