## Current Probability of Failure for Poles

### Description

This function calculates the current annual probability of failure per kilometer Poles The function is a cubic curve that is based on the first three terms of the Taylor series for an exponential function. For more information about the probability of failure function see section 6 on page 30 in CNAIM (2017).

### Usage

```pof_poles(
pole_asset_category = "20kV Poles",
sub_division = "Wood",
placement = "Default",
altitude_m = "Default",
distance_from_coast_km = "Default",
corrosion_category_index = "Default",
age,
measured_condition_inputs,
observed_condition_inputs,
reliability_factor = "Default"
)
```

### Arguments

 `pole_asset_category` String The type of asset category `sub_division` String. Refers to material the pole is made of. `placement` String. Specify if the asset is located outdoor or indoor. `altitude_m` Numeric. Specify the altitude location for the asset measured in meters from sea level.`altitude_m` is used to derive the altitude factor. See page 107, table 23 in CNAIM (2017). A setting of `"Default"` will set the altitude factor to 1 independent of `asset_type`. `distance_from_coast_km` Numeric. Specify the distance from the coast measured in kilometers. `distance_from_coast_km` is used to derive the distance from coast factor See page 106, table 22 in CNAIM (2017). A setting of `"Default"` will set the distance from coast factor to 1 independent of `asset_type`. `corrosion_category_index` Integer. Specify the corrosion index category, 1-5. `age` Numeric. The current age in years of the conductor. `measured_condition_inputs` Named list observed_conditions_input `observed_condition_inputs` Named list observed_conditions_input `conductor_samp = c("Low","Medium/Normal","High","Default")`. See page 146-147, table 192 and 194 in CNAIM (2017). `reliability_factor` Numeric. `reliability_factor` shall have a value between 0.6 and 1.5. A setting of `"Default"` sets the `reliability_factor` to 1. See section 6.14 on page 69 in CNAIM (2017).

### Value

Numeric. Current probability of failure per annum per kilometer.
