Can anyone recommend a good source of independent information regarding the reliability/MTBF figures that are available for Power Generating thermal plant assets?

Our library of data bases does not show any "new' sources for Power Generating Plants. The old stand by data is the IEEE STD 500 Reliability Data book for nuclear power plant components. This data is at least 15 years old but could be used for worst case risk analysis. This book is available (maybe) from the IEEE in New York City. It is referenced by IEEE STD 500-1984.

Another IEEE book called "Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems" IEEE Std 493,1990 has reliability data that is more up-to-date and could be useful for an analysis. The best data source for power systems is the PREP (Power Reliability Enhancement Program) database which was collected for the Army. In this database, reliability figures of merit are developed for a number of equipments and sub-levels for power distribution systems, power generators and HVAC equipments. This database is controlled by the Army Special Mission Office at Fort Belvoir VA. The contact point is: Mr. Peyton Hale, Special Mission Office, Telephone 703-704-2761.

I am looking for good independent information regarding the reliability of office and laboratory facilities equipment(e.g. building envelope, HVAC, electrical distribution, etc.) My aim is to set standards for specifying/purchasing preferred products based on LIFE-CYCLE costs, not first costs. I'd like to see a "Consumers Report" style assessment of typical facilities equipment and components that rates brand against brand, for issues such as maintainability and reliability. An 11/99 posting at the Reliability Analysis Center's website mentioned PREP (Power Reliability Enhancement Program). "In this database, reliability figures of merit are developed for a number of equipments and sub-levels for power distribution systems, power generators and HVAC equipments. This database is controlled by the Army Special Mission Office at Fort Belvoir VA. The contact point is: Mr. Peyton Hale, Special Mission Office, Telephone 703-704-2761." Are there others?
