“…From the previous lifetime evaluation, the LC during oneyear operation can be calculated from the mission profile. In order to evaluate the reliability of the system, parameter variations need to be introduced in the lifetime evaluation process (e.g., lifetime model and the stress parameters) by using the Monte Carlo simulation [33]- [35]. By doing so, the lifetime distribution and the unreliability function of the power device can be expressed in terms of statistical value, and the reliability metrics such as B x lifetime can be obtained [36].…”

“…Notably, for the system with several components (e.g., the PV inverter with several power devices), the reliability block diagram, which represents the reliability interaction among components in the system, is required for calculating the reliability of the entire system. A step-by-step system-level reliability evaluation process has been discussed in details in [33]- [35].…”

“…In the prior-art research, it is suggested that the reliability and lifetime of power electronic systems (e.g., PV inverters) are strongly affected by the operating conditions [13]- [18], referred to as mission profiles. Thus, the mission profile is usually required as an input of the DfR process.…”

“…For PV applications, the solar irradiance and the ambient temperature are normally considered as the components of a mission profile, as they determine the PV power production (i.e., the PV inverter loading). Since the solar irradiance and ambient temperature are location-dependent (due to the climate condition of the installation site), the mission profile can vary significantly, and thus the reliability of PV inverters [15]- [18]. From the design perspective, this is a challenge for the DfR approach, where the concept of "one design fits all" is difficult to be achieved.…”

“…Renewable energy (RE) refers to energy generated from non‐depleting indigenous resources, such as sunlight, wind, tide and geothermal heat . In the energy sector, the generation of electricity from renewable resources has received a huge amount of attention worldwide . The primary reason for this is because RE is based on clean resources that produce no or insignificant amounts of waste products and pollutants .…”
