Abstract : The goal of this research was to determine how to configure a power distribution systems to obtain 99.999% power reliability. The location selected for analysis was Vandenberg Remote Tracking Station, California. The Research objectives were to design a generic power distribution system capable of providing 99.999% power reliability, determine the theoretical reliability of the existing system, determine the actual historical reliability, and identify and price any modifications required to achieve 99.999% power reliability. Site provided one-line electrical drawings and outage reports were used to develop mathematical models of the existing system based on standards published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The generic model was a fully redundant radial power distribution system.
