Dear Sirs,

 

Are there available any sources which give any recommendations when plant power supply can be considered as an reliable.

 

For example: we have two Main Supply Points, each is supplied from: a) Local Power Plant B) external power supplier . Each refinery plant is supplied from two Local Supply Points which are fed from both Main Supply Points.

 

For a few most critical plants we have also third power supply from third, another, Local Supply Point, but still fed from two Main Supply Points , mentioned before. 

 

Is this third power supply can be considered as an reliable?

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Best regards.

Probably the best resource on the above subject is IEEE Gold Book, i.e. IEEE Standard 493 "Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems".

 

Performing RAM study for different alternatives should help you make the right decision.
