Abstract : As some circuit elements (resistors, capacitors, diodes) may have three states  operable, shortcircuit, and break  a ternary logic is well suited to describe their reliability. Reliability probabilistic formulas in ternary notations are written. Five examples of seriesparalle circuits illustrate the use of the formulas. It is found that: the reliability of a system, in which every element is provided with a reserve element, can be calculated by means of a binary logic if shortcircuits and breaks are taken into account separately; the ternary system permits calculating the reliability of the structure as a whole; the binary logic is inapplicable to some systems; the ternary logic can be used in such cases; the use of the ternary logic opens the possibility for using an snary logic in systems whose elements can exist in one of s states.
