Intelligent Paralleling: A Technology for Higher UPS Efficiency

In order to optimize the energy used by an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), Emerson Network Power has developed a proprietary technology named Intelligent Paralleling. This technology is capable of delivering higher operating system efficiency without compromising reliability and availability.

This white paper will focus on this particular technology to improve the UPS operating efficiency when the unit is working at a reduced system capacity, which is the typical condition in a data center.

Bottom-Up Data Center Power Management

Outlet switching and outlet-level power measurements are critical for the modern data center goals of complete management of devices, growth, and efficiency. It has been said for years that you can’t improve what you don’t measure. Efficiency analysis will only become more critical as belts are tightened and competition increases over the coming decade. In this paper, we propose that rack PDUs with outlet-switching and outlet-level power measurement capability are a must-have in the modern data center.

Preventing Data Corruption in the Event of an Extended Power Outage

Despite advances in computer technology, power outages continue to be a major cause of PC and server downtime. Protecting computer systems with uninterruptible power supply (UPS) hardware is part of a total solution, but power management software is also necessary to prevent data corruption after extended power outages. Various software configurations are discussed, and best practices aimed at ensuring uptime are presented.

Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

Output short-circuit current bearable by the UPS

According to the standards, an “overcurrent” is a current which exceeds its rated value. Overcurrents can arise in different modalities, depending on whether they are the result of an overload or a shortcircuit.

While the former is a normal situation for an electrical circuit, the latter occurs after a negligible impedance fault between two points of the circuit where there is a voltage in ordinary operating conditions.

The aims of this white paper are to clarify the concept of prospective short circuit current bearable by the UPS, to explain the role of fuses and to indicate the requirements of the international standard IEC 62040-1.

Evaluating and Deploying Prefabricated Data Centers

IT, telecommunications and data center managers are increasingly recognizing the value of integration, both in their IT and communication stacks and in the facilities that support them. Designing, configuring and fabricating data center or telecommunication infrastructure off-site is creating tighter integration across systems, streamlining processes and enhancing management.
