Thermosyphon Cooler Hybrid System for Water Savings in an Energy Efficient HPC Data Center: Modeling and Installation

EUCI Utilities, Data Centers, and Renewable Energy Summit

The Thermosyphon Cooler Hybrid System (TCHS) integrates the control of a dry heat rejection device, the thermosyphon cooler (TSC), with an open cooling tower. Johnson Controls partnered with two national laboratories—the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, and Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico—to deploy the TSC as a test bed at NREL’s high-performance computing (HPC) data center in the first half of 2016.
