Data Center Power System Reliability Beyond the 9's: A Practical Approach

Reliability has always been the focus of mission-critical power system design. While a rigorous mathematical approach to reliability is necessary to achieve the best results, the techniques used are often misunderstood or misapplied. Further, those practical elements so crucial to successful implementation are frequently overlooked. This paper gives an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of power system reliability analysis and the limiting "real-world" factors that must be used to temper any rigorous mathematical approach.
