The power transfer systems (PTS) has special reliability properties, including multiple states and fault dependence. Consequently, traditional binary-state reliability modeling methods cannot accurately evaluate the reliability of PTS. In order to resolve the contradiction between terminal energy demand and power transfer capability of PTS, this paper proposes a novel multi-state reliability model based on power transfer efficiency (PTE) for reliability evaluation of PTS. The multi-state model caused by performance degradation based on PTE is considered in this paper. In addition, the failure correlation in virtue of the system structure and energy allocation mechanism is analyzed in the proposed model, and the corresponding reliability evaluation result is obtained under different terminal energy requirements. The approach is verified on the example of a dual hydraulic actuation system (DHAS), in which the stochastic model based on the generalized stochastic Petri nets (GSPNs) is established and combined with the power transfer capability via universal generating function (UGF). Though changing flow rate to face the degradation rate of hydraulic pump, the reliability assessment of DHAS based on the proposed reliability model is effective and accurate.
