A Strategy for Long Term Power

Critical Power is a key concern for the data center manager. As subject matter expert, Reza Tejali, P.E.  of Schneider Electric explains, “(Power) Loss must be truly ‘prevented’ by prudent operational practices.” That theme is prevalent in this thought leadership whitepaper.

The author addresses several compelling points around proper planning and implementation. Of course everything begins with design but what happens after installation? Certainly equipment begins to deteriorate which can be exacerbated through data center changes, making the proper choice of apparatus extremely important.

He also explains how there is a differentiation between the start up and commissioning of equipment. A critical point is that information in this first step must be thoroughly documented for maintenance.

Key is the fact that maintenance is not merely a pass off point; it needs to be thought of in terms of trends and benchmarking. The author also explains how emergency procedures and circuit breakers factor into long term reliability of power systems.

This informative whitepaper presents a concise and important view of a long term strategy for the reliability and management of critical power systems. Read this timely material today.
