Big data has changed the world. We generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data daily—data that businesses, governments and people depend on. Further fueled by mobile devices and data-on-demand business, there are ever-growing demands on service levels in data centers around the world. Cloud computing and the Internet of Things are driving 12 percent growth per year in the data center market. The expectations for peak performance and uninterruptible power have never been higher. The data center market itself is changing too. Data centers are moving closer to their customers, colocating and adopting multitenant architecture more than ever before. Many are becoming smaller and more scalable. Tax and energy incentives are common, aimed at attracting data center investment while improving the operational efficiency of these critical facilities. Managaing Energy Use and Costs Data centers consume vast amounts of energy to keep online businesses running at maximum capacity around-the-clock. To avoid wasting much of the electricity pulled off the grid and to improve operational costs, data centers are being designed and built with higher levels of efficiency, measured in PUE (power usage effectiveness). Today, data center owners want more sustainable ways to power their facilities and lessen their carbon footprints. Assessing your center’s needs and designing a power system that’s modular and scalable will help you optimize uptime and availability, cut energy use and provide significant savings. Assessing Facility Needs A data center’s electrical power supply can be provided by several different circuits and supplemented by energy storage systems and generators. To provide a “No-Break” power supply (uninterruptible power with zero service interruptions), two independent power sources provide redundancy and risk reduction, rather than depend on a single source of inbound power. Power Supply Redundancy is an essential design feature built into a data center to provide a double layer of security. To prevent interruptions to the power supply, all components, including the emergency systems, are installed in duplicate with multiple generator sets. Security There is an essential need for protecting both the data center’s physical security and its cyber security. Redundant backup power is a critical component of a secure data center—and a requirement for recognition as a Tier IV data center. Physical Environment Maintaining precise, stable air conditioning and optimal control of environmental dust are two more factors creating larger loads and more dependence on backup generators. Fire Prevention Fires must be prevented, extinguished or controlled. An ultrasophisticated detection system that ensures maximum containment must be maintained on an uninterruptible power supply. Power Considerations Scalability A larger-than-necessary power system that caters to possible unknowns will increase costs and diminish efficiency. The industry is seeing a shift to scalable data centers that start small and scale up to meet increased demands. This trend is even more evident in colocated and multitenant facilities that make up the majority of new data center construction. Colocating (sharing data center space but not servers) or multitenanting (sharing servers) helps businesses achieve cost savings and efficiency. Secure, robust data storage requires a dependable and scalable power system—one that’s capable of delivering uninterruptible power and meeting demanding service requirements. Uptime and Reliability Designing power systems that meet the requirement for the highest levels of uptime, such as the Uptime Institute’s Tier IV standard, requires expert attention to system architecture and equipment redundancy. Getting the right combination of uninterrupted power supply and generator sets is crucial to meet tier classifications. Modular Data Centers The modular data center achieved by installing and enclosing two or more generators outdoors versus building oversized generators indoors is becoming more prevalent. Each generator set provides power to specific servers. “Swing” generators come online to provide backup power if one fails, offering an option to other paralleling equipment. Edge Data Centers The building of smaller data centers closer to users (those on the “edge” of large metropolitan markets) is becoming more common due to network latency, which limits the maximum rate that information can be transmitted. Edge data centers provide quick-and-agile response, faster access to data and an improved experience for businesses and people that are “always on.” Redundancy Redundancy is an essential design feature built into a data center to provide a layer of security, known as N+1 or 2N redundancy, with essential components duplicated in the event that one component fails. While a facility might install a single large generator to meet its power needs, paralleling two or more generators with paralleling switchgear offers practical benefits and advantages over a single-generator system. Performance Our reliable power systems play a major role in helping data centers prevent unnecessary financial loss and security breaches in the event of a power outage. The generator provides backup power within seconds of a break in the normal power supply. Generator sets should start providing backup power within seconds of a break in utility power supply, and transfer switches should provide seamless automatic switching between the electrical power from the utility and the backup power system. End-to-End Management From planning the design and selecting the equipment to testing and commissioning, we’re focused on delivering reliable, custom-designed power systems tailored to your specifications. Agile manufacturing, rigorous testing and careful commissioning assure you of a solution that fits your business—and your budget. Customized Solutions Your power system is customized, built and tested by a dedicated team of experienced applications engineers. They’ve designed power systems for hundreds of data centers and combine industry experience with Kohler’s agile manufacturing process to deliver your purpose-built solution.

There’s no business more important than providing health and patient care. In southwestern Michigan, the Community Hospital of Watervliet serves more than a dozen communities. As one of the primary hospitals in this area, it is responsible for offering routine and emergency health care around the clock, 365 days a year. The hospital employs approximately 350 people and offers a broad array of inpatient and outpatient services. The four-story building, constructed in 1979, includes approximately 65 beds for patients, as well as an emergency room, surgical suite, critical care unit, birthing center, radiology lab, and rehabilitation center. A ground level heliport is located near the emergency room for critical care patients needing helicopter transport. To ensure that their facility will have full power in the event of a utility outage, the hospital’s board of directors invested in a 750 kW Gemini® Twin Pack genset from Generac Power Systems. This diesel-powered unit is actually two 375 kW generators in one enclosure, designed to operate in parallel. This dual genset arrangement provides built-in redundancy and twice the reliability of a traditional single engine generator, since each genset backs up the other. If one is undergoing maintenance or doesn’t operate for some reason, the second genset will provide coverage of the load up to 375 kW, which is sufficient for all of the hospital’s critical load, as well as most of its operations. The system was installed by a local electrical contractor with experience in connecting standby power equipment. They coordinated the connection work with the local utility and integrated the generator with the hospital’s uninterrupted power supply (UPS) battery system. Once the new genset was in place, it wasn’t long before it was called into service. “We actually ran the entire hospital on the generator for more than three hours while the utility changed transformers in our area,” Don Englehardt says. “The system has also worked well during a few short outages we’ve had since it was installed.” For every hospital, backup power is imperative, ensuring that emergency and life safety systems will remain fully operational anytime utility power is lost. But a reliable and redundant backup system also provides tremendous peace of mind to hospital administrators and facility managers. “In the event of a major outage, we’re fully prepared,” Englehardt notes. “With the fuel we have on-site, the generators can operate for the better part of a week without interruption, powering the entire hospital. This system gives us much more flexibility than the one it replaced. Our administrative team and the hospital’s board of directors were visionary in initiating the purchase of this equipment for the well-being of our patients and staff.” For more information on industrial power for community hospitals and health care centers, contact South Shore Generator.

While diesel has been the traditional fuel choice, many healthcare facilities are now using natural gas or bi-fuel generators, upon approval of the AHJ, to meet runtime requirements during times of crisis. Two Natural Solutions Bi-Fuel is a great option for healthcare facilities because it provides the best of both worlds. You meet the on-site fuel requirements of NEC 700 and NFPA 110 because you have a diesel storage tank, but obtain the benefits of longer runtimes as the generator transitions to natural gas under load. Generac offers fully integrated solutions that are the only EPA-compliant generators straight from the factory in both the 500 kW and 600 kW nodes. These units can also be paralleled to create even larger kW requirements. Natural gas generators are also being specified for many healthcare facilities, as the permitting requirements are easier. In addition, more AHJ’s are now considering the natural gas pipeline network to be an acceptable on-site fuel storage, as this strong underground network is rarely impacted by weather or other crisis events, allowing you to meet code requirements related to having a reliable fuel source. Another advantage is that there is less maintenance associated with natural gas generators. Integrated Paralleling Offers Even More Options Generac’s innovative Modular Power System (MPS) can provide the needed large kWs for hospitals along with the benefits of redundancy, scalability, and safety, through integrated paralleling. While it rarely happens, should your single large kW backup generator fail in an emergency, lives are at risk. With Generac’s MPS, you have at least one other backup/emergency generator operating to ensure critical operations continue. This means the kW requirements of the smallest genset in the paralleled system is sized appropriately to meet those needs. With our unique MPS, you can also combine generators using a variety of fuels such as diesel and natural gas. This not only gives you the benefits of genset redundancy, but now you have fuel redundancy as well. Generac’s MPS approach does not require dedicated switchgear sections. Future expansion generators simply tie directly to the generator bus. Because the paralleling is already built into our generators, the MPS system fundamentally has greater flexibility for growth, requires less electrical room space, and reduces initial capital cost. Whether it be multiple generators in parallel, or a large single engine generator, Generac has the product solution to meet your requirements. Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care Facilities Need Low Maintenance Units Diesel generators require constant care. With engine requirements for low-sulfur diesel fuel, the fuel now needs to be re-conditioned every 12-16 months to ensure stability and ease of flow. This fuel requirement, along with the maintenance of the exhaust after treatment system, requires an experienced facility manager to handle this process. If you do not have this person on staff, you would need to turn to a third-party provider for the service, which will add cost. It will also require the rental of a backup generator during servicing when not using a MPS solution. To reduce the maintenance burden, many short and long-term care facilities are turning to natural gas generators, as they need little maintenance. They are also eco-friendly with fewer emissions and a smaller carbon foot print. Healthcare Facilities Need Custom Backup Emergency Solutions Generac has more than five decades of experience in working with health care facilities—it’s one of the reasons we have expanded our product line to meeting ongoing needs. We have added large kW diesel generators to meet growing power needs. At the same, we developed innovative natural gas and bi-fuel generators, providing longer runtime to meet code requirements as well as provide extended protection for patients, staff, and visitors. Your patients and staff depend on you. Now, you can depend on Generac. For more information, contact South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA. Source: generac.com

Everyone knows that when hospitals are not functioning due to an outage, they place the lives of patients, staff members, and visitors at risk. What administrators and facility managers often do not realize is that during a time of crisis, a lit hospital is like a beacon to residents. Many visitors won’t leave and many community members flood in, looking for shelter, assistance, food, and water.
