Abstract: The Markov model is developed to explore the performance analysis of a state dependent working vacation queueing system with interdependent rates. The server is subjected to breakdown randomly while providing services. When a breakdown occurs, the server is immediately sent to the repair station where the repairman takes a setup time before starting the repair. The failed server is inspected by the repairman and if there is minor problem, the server is repaired and is sent back to the service station with probability q. If some major fault is diagnosed during inspection, the server requires second phase of repair with probability p = 1 − q. The matrix geometric method is applied to obtain the queue size distribution and other performance indices such as throughput, expected delay time, etc. Various performance measures are computed for varying values of system parameters to facilitate the sensitivity analysis by taking a numerical illustration.
