High-Efficiency AC Power Distribution for Green Data Centers
Source: APC by Schneider Electric
The use of 240 volt power distribution for data centers saves floor space, simplifies power cabling, saves capital cost, reduces weight, and increases electrical efficiency. This paper describes the various con-figurations for this distribution architecture and quantifies the benefits for the optimal configuration. Note: The methods in this paper only apply in North America and are for problems that are unique to North America.
