AC vs DC Power Distribution for Data Centers

Cover

In this paper, you'll learn why high-efficiency AC will likely emerge as the dominant choice for data center power distribution. Topics covered include:

  • A review of the characteristics, features, and limitation of AC and DC distribution
  • A mathematical model of the efficiency of two different AC distribution systems and three different DC distribution systems for different operating conditions
  • Why many of the DC benefits are unfounded or exaggerated
