Overview

Current heat exchange methods for cooling data centers are inherently inefficient in meeting the requirements imposed by today's dense, high-speed computing equipment, and they can contribute considerable costs to operating expenditures. The Alcatel-Lucent Modular Cooling Solution (MCS) can reduce energy consumption (with respect to transport of waste heat to the location's heat sink) while offering a coefficient of performance (COP) much greater than current approaches. Using a building's chilled water secondary loop the MCS can operate with as little as 10 percent of the electrical power used by a comparable Computer Room Air Conditioner (CRAC). This paper presents the results of tests performed on the Alcatel-Lucent MCS to determine the effects of pump unit power loss on the system and data center equipment.
