White Paper Abstract
Integrated Automated Controls for Data Centers – Philosophy & Approach
Carlos Petty, Principal
The sensitive mechanical and electrical support systems of critical facilities are essential for their day-to-day operations. Protecting these resources from predictable, as well as unpredictable conditions requires advanced environmental monitoring and control. In addition to standard lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating systems, energy that is used in critical facilities require different approaches and strategies to reduce energy consumption. The challenge is to cut costs by improving equipment performance while reducing the use of energy without diminishing the comfort, safety or security of this critical environment. This white paper will discuss a clear philosophy and approach of building automation system design that embraces technology trends and energy-efficient measures used in combination for critical facilities that will reduce energy consumption.
