How to configure stack power for 3850?

This is planning to setup 3 cisco catalyst 3850-48p with 3 NM (10g). After connecting the required cables, what would be next to configure the stack power? I know that I can choose between power-sharing and redundant, btw, which one is more suitable? Any step-by-step guides?

thanks,

It entirely depends on how many PSUs, what size they are, and what your requirements are in terms of redundancy.  Also, PoE requirements are to be considered.
