Renewable Energy for Datacenters: Energy Flow in Datacenters

While envisaging datacenters going green (100% dependent on clean renewable energy sources), there is a need to analyze the required energy consumption in datacenters: The amount of energy flowing at different levels in the datacenter and the type of systems using this energy. The experiment carried out involved doing an inventory of the different systems present in a studied datacenter, finding out their maximum power consumption and carrying out periodic recordings of the amount of current flowing through each screened Power Distribution Unit (PDU) to these systems.
