Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer Articles, January 15-21Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online for January January 15-21 covered campus emergency power case study, arc flash mitigation and solar power, backup power systems for high-performance buildings, sizing domestic water pipes, and data center design. Link to each article below.

1. Case study: Centralizing campus emergency power

Duke University studied emergency power aesthetics, noise, emissions, and maintenance costs. The result—a central generator plant.

2. Designing for arc flash mitigation in solar photovoltaic systems

Rising solar capacity comes with rising risk. The challenge is mitigating that risk.

3. Designing backup, standby, and emergency power for high-performance buildings

Backup power design for a high-performance building is required, and offers many benefits.

4. Sizing domestic water pipes

When sizing pipes in nonresidential buildings, engineers should pay close attention to local code, available water pressure, fixtures, and a host of other factors.

5. Data center design considerations

This article provides guidelines on distribution systems’ levels of redundancy, the correct generator rating to use, and whether solar power can be used in a data center.

This list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, January 15-21, for articles published within the last two months.
