Alternative Power Generation Technologies
In this course, fuel cells and microturbines are discussed as possible alternatives for data center and network room power generation. The alternative power generation approach is compared to traditional standby power generation options. Both benefits and drawbacks of the multiple power generation approaches are highlighted.
• Evaluate fuel cells and micro turbines as alternatives for power generation • Identify the various traditional power generation modes of data centers and network rooms such as: o Standby mode o Continuous mode o Utility interactive mode • Discuss the benefits and drawbacks of both traditional and emerging power generation technologies • Determine the impact of alternative power generation on total cost of ownership • Describe issues to consider, such as emissions and availability/redundancy when recommending a solution
