This paper deals with the steady state behavior of an M=G=1 multiple working vacation queue with server breakdown. The server works with different service times rather than completely stopping service during a vacation. Both service times in a vacation period and in a regular service period are assumed to be generally distributed random variables. The system may breakdown at random and repair time is arbitrary. Further, just after completion of a customer’s service the server may take a multiple working vacation. Supplementary variable technique is employed to find the probability generating function for the number of customers in the system. The mean number of customers in the system is calculated. Some particular cases of interest are discussed. Numerical results are also presented.
