Better Modeling, Better Results

By Green Data Center Man | Sep 05, 2017

Modeling your data center using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help get a better picture of the data center performance, hot spots, air flows, pressures and more.  There are natural concerns about the cost, complexity, and how a CFD can compliment your floor design and work with your Data Center Information Management (DCIM) tools. CFD […]

What do we want from CFD?

By Green Data Center Man | Jan 06, 2017

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of data centers has been going on for some time, but how does it help us?  For an existing data center, do you want a CFD model to show you things you already know, such as hot or cold spots? 90% of the time we are using a CFD report […]

Warmer Chilled Water on Existing Systems

By Green Data Center Man | Oct 06, 2016

So we are looking to save energy, and one of those ways is increasing the chilled water temperature.  But how does that save anything?  Increasing the chilled water temperature brings it closer to the condenser water temperature and thereby reduces the amount of work (lift) a chiller has to perform.  Since the chiller usually has […]
