Data Center Instability Needs a Reliably Trackable Metric   It is understood that uptime is mission critical for a data center. We design our data centers with multiple redundancies, secondary and tertiary backup power, high quality components and infrastructure, distributed UPS and PDUs, and the list goes on. A lot of thought is put into the building of the infrastructure, layout and load profile for data centers...

3DFS Software-Defined Power is an innovative technology that opens up a new level of electricity control and data that has enormous global implications. When a facility has 3DFS installed, there is immediate network protection and improvement in asset performance with a clear reduction in energy consumption and utility bills. We encourage people to learn about the importance of our technology and the direction of our...

Digital Measurement   At the core of 3DFS technology is the ability to measure absolute electrical parameter values at the nanosecond level. This alone is of considerable value. Right now, anywhere in the world, including in all of the live electrical environments that power our homes and businesses, electricity is not precisely measured, rather it is semi-accurately calculated using integrated RMS values, which are simply averages. This...

Fossil fuel generation of electricity is directly related to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and regardless of the regional differences in power generation profiles, a substantial portion of the electricity supplied to facilities worldwide is generated from some fossil fuel source. Those GHG emissions are considered when calculating the carbon footprint from electricity consumption of a company or location. In every methodology of calculation used...

We have had some great success in the last few weeks and the momentum keeps building. Software-Defined Power is a platform technology that is changing the energy industry from the ground up and we receive many of the same questions daily.   We have decided to conduct a Webinar on Software-Defined Power to answer the most common questions and allow for Q&A with prospective partners, clients,...

During the first 90 years of the Grid, electricity was mainly used for motors and incandescent lights. That meant nearly a century of growth providing electricity to homes and businesses for relatively predictable purposes.       In the last 35 years, we have increased our reliance on computers and precision electronics throughout every sector and in every area of our country. This shift from static and predictable electricity...

Software-defined power is the future of energy technology. We have updated our last server rack video to include the automatic phase balancing which eliminates neutral current and reduces operational costs for data centers.   Key Highlights: Dynamically addressing harmonics and power factor, automatically balancing power loads across the phases, real time streaming server rack data.   With an innovative combination of electronic hardware, computer hardware, and artificial intelligence software,...

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory releases the Energy Flow Chart for the U.S. every year. The latest Energy Flow Chart is here. As we have highlighted previously, the U.S. loses more than 67.8% of the electricity that is generated in our Grid. These losses are categorized as “Rejected Energy.” The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that electricity transmission and distribution losses are 6% annually   US Energy Information...

Data centers electrical networks are filled with thousands of loads all demanding power at the same time. In this video, we isolate a server rack loaded with various storage arrays and GPU accelerated blade servers and individually review a few of the beneficial effects of subcycle correction. The server rack shows a clear operational difference when subcycle correction is turned on. The first section demonstrates the...
