— In this paper we address the problem of Data Centers energy efficiency by proposing a methodology which aims at planning the Data Center operation such that the usage of locally produced renewable energy is maximized. We defined a flexibility mechanism and model for Data Center's components (electrical cooling system, IT workload, energy storage and… (More)
The Data Centre (DC) services business is blooming increasing their energy demand and making them important players in the safe operation of the smart grid. The DC IT servers have a dynamic power factor varying from 0.98 for high density workloads and 0.8 for 20% server usage. A sub unitary power factor means that the voltage and current waveforms are not… (More)
