Future Facilities Presents Simulation Methodology at Lean, Clean & Green Symposium

At a recent symposium, Future Facilities presented a simulation-based methodology that addressed the most common efficiency problems that plague the modern mission critical facility.

Future Facilities participated as a Research Underwriter in the Uptime Institute's Lean, Clean & Green Symposium & Exposition at the New York Hilton from April 13 to16. At the symposium, Future Facilities presented a simulation-based methodology that addressed the most common efficiency problems that plague the modern mission critical facility. These problems are caused by high performance IT equipment that dissipate high power in small volumes.


Historically, owner/operators have not had the tools or guidance needed to take control over the environmental impact of IT equipment "thermal footprint". The methodology presented by Future Facilities bridges this gap in knowledge and expertise to enable data center operators to tackle complex, IT-related cooling and efficiency issues. Efficiency gains of up to 50% for the facility cooling system can be achieved with this technique.

In addition to the presentation, an associated white paper entitled: "Using Computational Fluid Dynamics to Maximize Data Center Efficiency Without Sacrificing IT Equipment Resilience" was submitted.

Darfon G320 Microinverter

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
