The models used in this tool have been selected from a Romonet library of over 40 reference data center design models that represent the most common primary electrical and mechanical configurations in use today as well as variations thereof that represent different resilience and operating strategies.
Like all the reference models used in the Site Analysis Tool, the models here represents a 1MW IT capacity facility in order to provide an 'apples-for-apples' comparison with the other reference design models used in the tool.
The design, again for comparison purposes has been kept fairly simple and assumes the following:
- Single Hall/Room
- At least 2N resilience on electrical and N+1 on mechanical
- ASHRAE 2011 Recommended target IT supply temperature range
