In this paper, we consider a single server retrial queueing system with working vacations. Further vacation interruption is considering with the regular busy server is subjected to breakdown due to the arrival of negative customers. When the orbit becomes empty at the time of service completion for a positive customer, the server goes for a working vacation. The server works at a lower service rate during working vacation (WV) period. If there are customers in the system at the end of each vacation, the server becomes idle and ready for serving new arrivals with probability p (single WV) or it remains on vacation with probability q (multiple WVs). By using the supplementary variable technique, we found out the steady state probability generating function for the system and its orbit. System performance measures, reliability measures and stochastic decomposition law are discussed. Finally, some numerical examples and cost optimization analysis are presented. © 2016 Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University
