The Green Grid free cooling map and web tool was introduced at the 2009 Technical Forum with a promise that suggestions for enhancements were welcome and would be enacted. This year, The Green Grid free cooling maps and tools have been updated to include maps of Europe and Japan, and the web tool has been enhanced to include common practices in economization, such as return air mixing and humidification. The enhancements will be discussed and a brief demonstration is planned.
The Power Configuration Efficiency Estimator is an interactive online tool that The Green Grid will be launching shortly. The tool serves as a companion to TGG white paper #16, “Quantitative Analysis of Power Distribution Configurations for Data Centers”. This presentation is the first introduction of the tool to general users and will touch on the major features of the tool.
