Most data center operators would prefer a 2N redundant electrical system but using traditional design approaches not all can afford it. However, understanding generator and UPS ratings and data center loads, and obtaining accurate load data, can reveal hidden electrical system capacity. In addition, knowing what data center loads can be classified as Priority 2, can unlock additional system capacity that can be utilized in critical situations, such as if a system fault occurs. In this presentation the audience will gain the following:

• Understand generator and UPS ratings to get the most capacity out of these systems.
• Understand load data and how to obtain accurate load data.
• Know hidden and obvious data center Priority 2 loads that can be shed in critical situations to free-up system capacity.
• Learn about control methodology for sequentially shedding Priority 2 loads using simple control logic via relays, voltage monitors, and current sensors.
• Learn through an actual application of converting a Fortune 200 Retailer's data center 1N electrical system to a 2N system utilizing most of the existing base electrical infrastructure and thus saving significant capital costs.
