Further power protection applications in data centers

Mechanical load protection

The reliability of mechanical plant and, in particular, cooling systems, is critical to overall data center availability.
ABB has industrially rated UPSs and voltage conditioners that are suited to the difficult motor loads on these supplies. 

Power factor and harmonic correction

Utilities will often penalize for poor power factor caused by direct-connected motors on cooling plant, harmonics from motor drives and even some server loads and UPSs. Standard power factor correction using capacitors is difficult to apply in data centers, especially where standby generators are installed. Some server loads, particularly when heavily loaded, can cause a leading power factor, which is a particular problem for standby generators.
ABB’s PCS100 RPC (reactive power conditioner) is ideal for correcting power factor and low-order harmonics in data center applications.
