Data Centre Power Solutions

Datacentre uninterruptible power supplies and server room ups systems typically run from 1kVA to 1100kVA as they can include smaller UPS for racks and decentralised power solutions to large centralised UPS systems paralleled up to 6MVA in capacity. The choices of topologies, includes both transformer and transformer-based UPS systems. The three principle electrical concerns for data centre and computer room type UPS systems include:

  • Right-sizing to ensure the system is installed for today’s loads and future expansion
  • Operational efficiency to reduce energy usage, and contribute towards lower datacentre efficiency ratios – PUE and DCIE, total cost of ownership (TCO) and low carbon emissions
  • Resilience and scalability to guarantee uptime in the form of stand alone or modular N+x configurations and provide suitable runtime support

Most data centres and server rooms run a mixture of file servers (including legacy and Blade servers), each with this own power profile. Clustered and installed into communications cabinets or as standalone units, they are typically powered from local power distribution units (PDUs) or distributed electrical sockets. Our Power projects team can provide a site power survey to measure electrical consumption over a defined time period to ensure your uninterruptible power supply is right-sized for today’s loads and for scalability to meet your future data centre or computer room expansion. Our electrically qualified engineers can also assess your existing electrical infrastructure including the building incomer(s), LV switchgear, cabling and breaker discrimination to ensure a first time, on-budget and appropriately sized electrical installation.

Server Rack UPS Systems From EcoPowerSupplies

Uninterruptible power supplies for data centres can range from large centralised UPS to decentralised power protection using smaller systems to protect individual server cabinets and rows. At EcoPowerSupplies we survey every client post sale as part of our continuous improvement program to find out why they chose EcoPowerSupplies. Here are the top six reasons for the size of UPS used in a data centre and server rack application:

  1. Product selection providing excellent technical advice on transformer-based, transformerless and modular UPS systems and local standby power generators for a comprehensive and resilient power protection system.
  2. Technical expertise and manufacturer independence to deliver the right project proposal and meet client specification with ‘in-house’ CDCDP and CDCEP qualified data centre consultants.
  3. Professional advice support in designing a power continuity plan and the level or resilience required for the data centre.
  4. Project management providing a centralised project management team and unified single-source supplier management.
  5. Comprehensive electrical works including the installation of site specific switchgear, electrical cabling and maintenance bypass arrangements
  6. Three year UPS warranty as standard with competitive UPS maintenance plans and fixed future spares and battery pricing.

For more information on all the uninterruptible power supplies available from EcoPowerSupplies see our UPS Systems range. This splits several hundred products available by size, phase, format and technology.
