When designing the electrical supply for the Digitalis data center, we applied a non-standard approach. We did not look at the data center as one indivisible whole with one consumption, but we focused individually on individual servers, racks and aisles.
Thanks to a new perspective, we have created a unique solution with higher reliability with the same redundancy. At the same time, the solution has a better ratio between the installed power and the usable power of the electrical system equipment. Reliability with N+1 redundancy is enhanced by having all generators and UPSs run at less than maximum power during any power outage, while with the "N+standby" concept, N devices run at full power and the standby is not running. In both cases, the N+1 concept applies, where if any branch fails, the remaining branches will take over its performance without interruption.
In the Digitalis data center, Caterpillar rotary UPSs are installed, which work on the flywheel principle.
Bus duct is an enclosed metal unit containing copper or aluminum busbars for distribution of large amounts of power between components of the distribution system.
Their main advantage is that even at full voltage other points of supply can be connected, and the system can be flexibly modified.
Metal covered busbars are grounded what creates superior shielding.
Thanks minimal electromagnetic interference, this system is particularly suitable for data centers.
At DC Digitalis, we provide our clients with a wide portfolio of excellent serverhousing services. At DC Digitalis, you can choose exactly what you need, whether you are a large company looking to rent data centre space, or you just want to run a project with one server.
