Designing efficient and reliable data center electrical systems requires looking through the eyes of the electrical engineer-and the owner.
Taking on a mixed-use structure-such as one that includes retail and residential portions-can be an engineering challenge. With all the different engineered systems involved, it can be like working on and integrating several different projects at once. Building codes and standards are key to the success of these projects.
Engineers should consider the benefits of networking electrical systems-monitoring and controlling power, its usage, and how it affects system reliability.
Circuit protection, as defined by NFPA 70, can be interpreted in many ways. Understand the codes and standards to create a circuit protection protocol that can be followed in all buildings.
