Course: Energy Efficient Thermal Management of Data Centers

by @ 9:07 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electrical/Power

Instructor: Yogendra Joshi, Ph.D., School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
DATE: Monday, Feb. 22, 2010
PLACE: SEMI-THERM Symposium, Santa Clara Convention Center
ABSTRACT:? In 2006, data centers in the United States consumed about 61 billion kWh, or 1.5 % of total U.S. electricity consumption, for a total electricity cost of about $4.5 billion. This is equivalent to the amount of electricity consumed by approximately 5.8 million average U.S. households, and is about twice the electricity that was consumed for this purpose in 2000. As much as 20%-50% of the energy costs associated with the operation of a typical data center are ascribed to the cooling hardware. In this course, I will focus on energy efficient thermal management of data centers. Starting from the trends in energy consumption by cabinets and data centers I will discuss a number of metrics to quantify energy efficiency. I will then focus on approaches to improve energy efficiency of air-cooled data centers. Concepts of robust and sustainable design of data center facilities of the future will be addressed. Advanced thermal management approaches to handle the projected sharp increases in server heat loads will be discussed.
