1 Global Leader in Load Bank Rentals & Service Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

2 2 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

3 3 Validate system design and performance Ensure operational uptime Qualify for LEED certification Document Test Data & Results Competitive Advantage Attract new Data Center clients 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

4 4 Back up diesel generators (in parallel) UPS systems Automatic transfer switches Power Distribution Units (PDUs) Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) Hot aisle/cold aisle layout Pods & containers 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

5 5 Generators, UPS, PDUs CRAC systems, chiller, hot aisle/cold aisle validation, rack layout need to be validated Deficiencies in any of these areas result in project delays or operational downtime Reconfiguring and retesting adds significant costs to data center budgets and results in downtime of production systems to correct Innovations in Data Center Commissioning11/10/2013

6 6 Perception: We can figure this out when the time comes Reality: Should be part of the planning process Ensure all test specifications are planned for Ensure budget is complete Ensure schedule is met 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

7 7 Plan for commissioning as early as possible Think about commissioning in the design phase Integrate the commissioning plan into the design process Know what you are going to test Develop test specs Ensure all test specifications are planned for and met Ensure budget is accurate & complete Ensure timely execution Ensure design meets energy certification standards Innovations in Data Center Commissioning11/10/2013

8 8 Review of testing requirements Evaluate equipment in relation to testing objectives Plan for development of customized test solutions Develop REALISTIC budgetary forecasts Plan for equipment training Site walk for equipment placement, access, ingress and egress Logistics 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

9 9 Prove systems prior to production by simulating the operating environment Validate design specs and operational performance Reduce cost and risk of reworking/re-engineering Use test data as a marketing tool to attract tenants Innovations in Data Center Commissioning11/10/2013

10 10 Coordinate with client contractors who are invested in commissioning success: General Contractor Electrical Contractor Mechanical Contractor Commissioning Agent Dont forget the client 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

11 11 Started planning 1 year before data center construction was completed Reviewed spec – identified challenges Required solution for hot aisle/cold aisle containment – that did not exist ComRent developed a solution to meet the granular testing spec required Solution build took 4 months Delivered project on time, on budget & commissioned to spec Customer was happy! Innovations in Data Center Commissioning11/10/2013

12 12 Ordered load banks at the last minute (from another vendor) No site walk Load banks didnt fit in freight elevator - Delay Set up load banks outside - Delay Cable runs were wrong - Delay It rained – indoor load banks + rain = No Test - Delay Project behind schedule Project over budget Customer not so happy Innovations in Data Center Commissioning11/10/2013

13 13 It is not about the cost of equipment rental It is about the total cost to complete commissioning New technology can accelerate schedule and reduce labor costs Medium Voltage Load Banks – require 15x Fewer Cables and 5x less time to set up and tear down – fewer points of failure Wi-Fi Control – reduce time and associated man hours to complete tests Power Quality – New monitors complete more tests in less time, collect more data and reduce report generation time 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

14 14 More medium voltage generators being deployed Makes sense to test with actual medium voltage loads 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning CR922A 5MW MV Load Bank: Transportable medium voltage load bank Does not require a transformer CAPACITY: VAC 4,160 VAC Easy set up – 3 MV cables Linkable for larger loads (50MW) Reduces labor cost

15 15 Testing at full load to simulate real world outage Testing at unity or PF (i.e. -.8) or both? Unity – resistive 400kw Load Banks Linkable to meet larger load spec PF – Resistive/Reactive Load Banks Linkable for large loads Resistive Only Test Reactive Only Test Resistive/Reactive Test 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

16 16 Where are you testing? On the raised floor/maintenance room Remote Power Panel (RPP) Overhead bus track Under raised floor track New bus track adapters Faster set up Shorter cable runs Its just easier 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

17 17 DCM Room Validation Test: Balance electrical and chiller loads Ensure Optimum Thermal high load levels Ensure constant temp and pricise humidity levels Measure room air flow Measure room Delta T Test aisle layout = Integrated Systems Test 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

18 18 Precisely simulate production server loads & airflow: Validate aisle layout (perforated floor) Validate CRAC capacity Variable load Variable CFM Measure Delta T 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

19 19 Rack mount load banks The only way to validate pod electrical and chiller capacity Tune load banks to simulate actual server configuration Variable load Variable CFM Validate Delta T 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

20 20 CX Power Monitor One solution replaces: Drantez, Astro-Med and HoBo ! Very accurate (voltage and current) Simple set-up & automated data capture (programable) Simple report writing Calibrated & tested (every shipment) (Ground) current triggering Symmetrical components/zero sequencing (sums the currents) Data archived after each usage PQ + wireless Temp/Humidity probes (1-100) Wi-Fi, Ethernet & USB interface Free software (Live-View & U-View ) & upgrades 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

21 21 Wi-Fi Communications: IP addressable load banks Manage all load banks via a single laptop or Android device At the rack In the aisle In the room Save time Save labor! 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning Android Smartphone Interface Application Customized MS Windows GUI

22 22 In Aisle, Water Cooled Load Simulator: 250kw or 500kw configuration Light weight: 250kw unit = ~700lb. 500kw unit = ~1200lb Fully integrated into chilled water loop Continuously variable flow control Continuously variable power (load) control Continuously variable Delta T control 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning

23 23 Controllable load solutions have come a long way from the Salt Water Pickle Barrel Solutions designed to meet very specific requirements New Solutions enable more granular data collection Validate Data Center design and operational efficiency Clients have inquiring minds – They want to know! Commissioning is now a Competitive Advantage in a competitive marketplace 11/10/2013Innovations in Data Center Commissioning
