Schneider Announces Power Analysis and Simulation For Data CentersEnergy management company Schneider Electric recently announced a new analysis module for data centers that enables IT operators to simulate and understand changes to a data center and their effects on the power system.
Schneider said that the new product is a result of a cooperation with analytical engineering firm ETAP and combines Schneider Electric’s power monitoring systems with ETAP’s power system management and simulation software.
The new power analytic module, which builds on StruxureWare power monitoring and SCADA software, is designed to deliver real-time data to ultimately avoid power system outages. Schneider said the simulation capabilities include load flow, short circuit, arc-flash and relay coordination.
Schneider currently offers the module only to customers in the U.S.
