Consulting-Specifying Engineer‘s top 5 most read articles online for Jul. 16-22 covered HVAC projects, designing a grounded power supply system, parallel generators, electrical distribution equipment, and data centers used for bitcoin mining. Link to each article below.
1. Energy-performance goals direct HVAC projects
Building owners are enforcing various standards on projects regarding energy codes and their effect on heating and cooling system selection.
2. How to design a grounded power supply system
Transformerless uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems operate ungrounded during power transfer to a backup source, but a robust grounding design can accommodate the requirement of both grounded and ungrounded systems.
3. When and how to design parallel generators
When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that generators and the building electrical systems that they support are appropriate for the specific application. Whether providing standby power for health care facilities or prime power for processing plants, engineers must make decisions regarding generator sizing and whether generators should be paralleled.
4. Your questions answered: Electrical distribution equipment
The June 21, 2018, "Electrical: Distribution equipment" webcast presenters addressed questions not covered during the live event.
5. Data centers used for bitcoin mining
Data centers used for bitcoin mining have significant differences from their commercial data center counterparts.
