Battery Technology: Site Planning and Ventilation
Most data centers rely on lead acid batteries as their primary source of short term backup power. Battery plant design and Battery deployment decisions will impact The configuration of The data center site. Proper ventilation of The area that houses The batteries will play a key role In addressing site health and safety considerations. We will discuss how Battery technologies impact site requirements. We will also summarize some of The factors and codes to consider when Selecting and sizing a ventilation system for a facility In which stationary lead acid batteries are installed. 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.
* Describe how the choice of UPS battery technology impacts both site requirements and costs for supporting IT and network environments * Recognize that battery ventilation systems must address health, safety, and battery performance in a room * Identify the different ventilation requirements for Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries, Modular Battery Cartridges, and Flooded Batteries * Identify which local safety codes and regulations will impact the selection and sizing of a ventilation system
