Chapter 2

Thermal Efficiency Modeling in a Subtropical Data Center

N.M.S. Hassan, M.M.K. Khan and M.G. Rasul,    School of Engineering and Technology, Higher Education Division, Central Queensland University, Rockhampton, QLD, Australia

This chapter presents a study on examining and improving thermal efficiency of a data center. It reports the development of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model for the performance analysis of computer room air conditioners, detailed rack-by-rack inlet and exit temperatures and 3D thermal mapping of the data center and racks. In particular, the model identified the potential high-temperature zone within the computer rack and provided a detailed 3D analysis of how cold air moved through the data center. The ...
