We all want to have a reliable data center, and one key to data center uptime is circuit breaker reliability. As such, a detailed evaluation of the circuit breaker design and functionality at the design stage of the data center is extremely important. This white paper from Schneider Electric is designed to help engineers and managers of data center power systems understand the basics of circuit breaker design and maintenance in order to ensure the highest levels of reliability.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) provide the critical power for computer equipment in modern data centers. UPS equipment is supplied from commercial power or local generator power, with multiple sources being switched in various arrangements to provide continuous power to that equipment. Such switching requires frequent circuit breaker operation.
