Identify the Least Reliable Facilities and Circuits to Improve Power Quality

Industry studies show that up to 40% of all downtime is power quality related and 80% of these issues originate within the facility. Additionally, 50% of mission critical power outages are due to power quality issues. Just one instance of a power outage can cost a data center up to $1 million. Downtime results not just in lost revenue, but also possible liability issues. Prevent downtime by identifying the highest risk facilities and circuits with the worst power quality using EIG’s AI driven EnergyPQA.com® cloud-based energy management system and power quality meters.

  • Gain deep insights into all aspects of the data center’s voltage reliability and power quality with extensive dashboards and customizable reporting.
  • Automatically grade facilities on best-to-worst power quality risk.
  • Identify specific circuits in the worst facilities to provide simple meaningful actions that improve reliability and safety of the power system.

Respond Proactively to Power Quality Problems Before They Become Critical

To remain operational and profitable, data centers must respond to power quality events before they escalate. EIG’s power quality meters and EnergyPQA.com® energy management system send email alerts for programmed alarm limits and for all power quality events.

  • Send email alerts to multiple recipients.
  • Emails contain a link to the event details in the EnergyPQA.com® system.
  • Take remedial action before problems have escalated to the point of power or equipment failure.

Measure Data Center Power Usage Effectiveness

Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is an important metric for data centers. PUE is determined by dividing the total energy usage of the data center by the energy used for powering IT equipment. The resultant number indicates how much of a data center’s budget is used for income generation (IT equipment) and how much is used for other systems, such as cooling, that do not generate income directly. A PUE of 1 indicates that the data center is using its energy resources efficiently. A PUE greater than 1 indicates that the data center needs to focus on improving its energy usage efficiency.

EnergyPQA.com® AI driven energy management system automatically calculates current PUE, PUE for the past month and past six months, and PUE heatmap for the data center. With this information, data center management can keep track of their PUE and then take steps to improve it if necessary.
