380 Vdc Architectures for the Modern Data Center

This paper presents an overview of the case for the application of 380 Vdc as a vehicle for optimization and simplification of the critical electrical system in the modern data center. Specifically, this paper presents currently available architectures consistent with ANSI/BICSI 002-2011 and the EMerge Alliance Data/Telecom Center Standard Version 1.0. Additional EMerge Alliance white papers will explore the specific elements including economics, reliability, safety and efficiency.
