|10 Ways to Increase Power System Availability in Data Centers
Strategies for ensuring clean, continuous power to essential IT systems.
|3-Pole and 4-Pole Transfer Switch Switching Characteristics
Whether to, and how to, switch a neutral connection when transferring a load between two separate three-phase sources is a topic of frequent discussion.
|A Quantitative TCO Comparison of 400v AC and 600v AC Power Systems
Electrical Equipment Floor Space: This paper provides a quantitative analysis of 400V AC and 600V AC power distribution systems, at power load levels ranging from 300 kVA to 10 MVA, to determine which offers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO).
|A Step Closer Toward Maintenance-Free Gear
This paper will describe a breakthrough patented method of directly calculating conductor and pressure-junction impedance, resistance, and reactance using the noisy harmonic-laden switching-transient-laced (in other words, normal) load current flowing through an electrical distribution system.
|AC Versus DC Power Distribution
Issues to consider when comparing options for improving data center energy efficiency
|Active energy control-optimum solution for maximum savings
Saving energy is more than the right thing to do
|Aiming for grid parity on utility-scale solar applications
The next generation of utility-scale inverters—stepping up to reduce the cost of solar energy
|Arc Flash Safety in 400V Data Centers
Strategies for protecting employees from underappreciated yet potentially deadly hazards.
|Arc-preventative motor control centers
Arc-preventative MCCs enhance personnel safety, protect equipment and support more reliable operations.
|Branch Circuit Protection for High Density 208V Power Solutions
The following is an overview of ‘hidden’ issues that some manufacturers are not divulging about the use of Branch Circuit Protection for your high density, mission critical power units.
|Capacitor Application Issues
Capacitors provide well-known benefits to electric power systems. These benefits include power factor correction, voltage support, release of system capacity, and reduced system losses.
|Choosing a UPS Service Plan
Eaton Corporation, a global leader in power quality, distribution and control, recommends the inclusion of a service plan in order to maximize the performance and reliability of an uninterruptible power system (UPS). This white paper examines the four primary options available for maintenance and service of UPS products and outlines the differences and specific advantages among these alternatives.
|Choosing between a soft starter and a variable frequency drive to fit your application
Choosing between a soft starter and a variable frequency drive often depends on the application, system requirements, and cost (both for initial startup and over the life cycle of the system).
|Clarifications on the use of Department of Energy Design-Line 6, 7, and 8 transformers contained within 10 CFR 430 and 431, Energy Conservation Program for Commercial Equipment: Distribution Transformers Energy Conservation Standards
Purpose: To provide guidance to engineers regarding the efficiency levels of low voltage, dry-type distribution transformers and use of the Department of Energy Design-Lines 6, 7, 8 contained within 10 CFR 430 and 431.
|Considering the effects of UPS operation with leading power factor loads
Over the past five years, a new generation of data processing and communications equipment has become prevalent in modern data centers and network operations centers.
|Data Center – Unique Characteristics and the Role of Medium Voltage Vacuum Circuit Breakers
Data Centers are a critical part of the world economic systems. Billions of electronic transactions happen via data centers per year. These transactions can contain financial transactions that are critical to the parent company.
|Demand Response! Power FROM the People
According to Dave Loucks, Eaton’s solutions manager, who specified the functionality of the Demand Response dashboard for Eaton’s Power Xpert Metering and Software, “The data we got from Power Xpert also allowed for extensive diagnostics to better understand key contributors to the power curtailment.”
|Distributed versus centralized power backup strategies
Choosing the right UPS deployment architecture for your data center
|Distributing Power to Blade Servers
With the growth in blade servers with dual or triple power supplies, a single rack of equipment can easily produce dozens of power cords to manage—and an appetite for 20 kW or more of reliable power. Traditional power strips are just not up to the task.
|Eaton’s Power Xpert W.A.G.E.S. Monitoring and Reporting Solution Eliminates Guesswork and Complexity
To provide users with a complete solution, Eaton has developed a simple method of easily capturing baseline information on W.A.G.E.S. usage and providing ongoing monitoring and reporting.
