Suitable models, to be implemented and solved by means of appropriate software tools, are usually to be used in order to predict and assess the reliability related behaviour of a system. In this paper, the authors present a modelling procedure, based on the Monte Carlo method, for simulating the performances of a power electronics equipped system as a function of the reliability of its components. The core of the simulation is a representation of the system behaviour, in the presence of failures, in the state-space where transitions are driven by the events generated by the Monte Carlo reliability model of the basic elements. The results of a real case study, represented by a multivoltage vehicle for railway applications, are shown and discussed
