Short-Circuit, Coordination and Arc-Flash Studies for Data Centers: Best Practices and Pitfalls

January 7, 2010   by Karl A. Homburg

This white paper from Schneider Electric illustrates how data centre power systems present unique challenges for the application of electrical equipment. Multiple operating modes, for example, must be carefully implemented to achieve the desired system performance under normal and abnormal conditions. It also describes the challenges that a typical data centre presents to the system study engineer, common pitfalls that must be avoided, and how a well-performed system study is crucial to the successful performance of a data centre power system.
