Philip Caldwell | Square D
Philip is the External Affairs and Government Relations earthquake building code Edison Expert for Schneider Electric. These applications cover a wide range of critical facilities from hospitals to commercial nuclear power plants for compliance to U.S. and international standards including twelve in field technical sales. Over the past 18 years he has become extensively involved in earthquake mitigation research and applications. His expertise has been vetted through professional societies and formal peer reviewed journal articles associated with the specialized field of earthquake engineering including co-authoring an ASCE engineering textbook with a former chairman of the California Seismic Safety Commission.

Designing and constructing a new facility or upgrading an existing one brings business challenges that add stress to an already busy day. Working with a partner to provide commissioning services beginning with the conceptual planning phases all the way through turn-over and operation can reduce that effort and stress. From constructability and design reviews to test and validation of installed systems, an experienced commissioning team can provide the insight and knowledge to ensure the new systems are operating optimally preventing costly rework and redesigns long after your team should be operating a new and efficient system.

Conventional methods for specifying data center density are ambiguous and misleading. Describing data center density using Watts / ft2 or Watts / m2 is not sufficient to determine power or cooling compatibility with high density computing loads like blade servers. Historically, there is no clear standard way of specifying data centers to achieve predictable behavior with high density loads. An appropriate specification for data center density should assure compatibility with anticipated high density loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of power & cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, and maximize electrical efficiency. This presentation describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of power and cooling infrastructure for data centers.

Practical Considerations for Implementing Prefabricated Data Centers Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This presentation presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a system designer should expect from such a deployment.
