In today’s 24/7, ‘Always On’ business environment, reliability and resilience are always the top priorities for mission-critical facilities. However, these objectives can be threatened by practical aspects of daily use and operation in such facilities. Accordingly, Eaton has prepared a set of five White Papers which together provide a complete insight into data center power distribution systems; they draw on the Company’s many years’ experience in these areas, offering design guidance and practical tips that may not be available in textbooks, yet can significantly improve system reliability, power availability and uptime while also ensuring safety and compliance with relevant standards.

Data center power distribution systems in their entirety extend from the available power sources – typically incoming transformer, generator and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) - out through the switchgear and circuit breakers to the supported ICT, cooling and associated loads. It is essential to appreciate issues not only related to each item of power equipment, but also how these items interact with one another. This needs special attention as the nature of these interactions can vary as the data center load changes.

While the first paper looked at power distribution, this focuses on UPSs. The third, fourth and fifth papers cover UPS and Power Distribution topics; Feeders and Optimization, 3- and 4-pole Switching, and Selectivity respectively. Overall, the five papers provide knowledge to improve reliability and safety, while preventing unnecessary outages.

In today’s high availability server environments, unplanned power outages or line quality irregularities can have a highly detrimental impact on IT applications. During a recent su ...
