Rethink Power Monitoring

2 comments

In “Power Monitoring for Modern Data Centers” noted Electrical Engineer, Reza Tajali, P.E. of Square D Power Systems Engineering, offers a quick but insightful understanding of data center energy consumption and how to measure it.  He begins by explaining how monitoring sources have evolved. Particular emphasis is placed on how microprocessors have created tools that are very sophisticated.

 However, these tools are not meant to replace the tried and true circuit breaker trip unit but to enhance what they can do. He also explains the instrument classes and functions by breaking them down into their most understood definitions.

Most importantly, in this whitepaper, he discusses Deploying Power Monitors. Today’s data center is in constant need of high accuracy metering and this four step approach is a key to successful monitoring.  He notes what should be used, what to provide, what should be specified and what needs to address.
