The most necessary part of our day to day life is electricity. The primary purpose of a power supply plant is to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy in order to supply power to the electrical grid for the consumer’s needs. In this research paper deals with a power supply plant with three generators which are connected with parallel redundancy. Although, only one generator is sufficient for supplying power to the consumer’s needs. The authors’ of this research paper intend to evaluate and forecast the system’s reliability parameters, and have shown the practical utility of the work done with numerical examples and graphical illustrations.
