Power Redundancy in the Data Center
• Understand the impact that planning for redundancy has on the availability of a data center or network room • Recognize various types of Uninterruptible Power Supplies, including Standby, Line Interactive, Standby-Ferro, Double Conversion On-Line, and Delta Conversion On-Line • Determine the benefits, limitations, and common applications for these UPS types • Recognize the five UPS System Design Configurations, including Capacity or “N” System, Isolated Redundant, Parallel Redundant or “N+1” System, Distributed Redundant, and System plus System Redundant • Understand dual- and single-power path environments, and the impact they have on mission critical applications • Comprehend the importance of generators in mission critical applications
Power may be the most critical element of the physical data center today, impacting availability, performance and budgets. This foundational course explores common commercial AC voltage types, transformers and turns ratios, K-rating and Delta-Wye configuration. It also discusses voltage distribution, current ratings and electric fuses; as well as different types of circuit breakers, their sizing, and grounding requirements. Course Credits: • This course has been approved by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for one (1) PDH • This course is recognized for continuing education credit from IFMA for CFM/FMP Maintenance Points. • This course has been approved by the IL Society for Professional Engineers (ISPE) for one (1) PDH
