报告题目: Improving Data CenterEnergy Efficiency through End-to-End Cooling Modeling and Optimization演讲人: Dr. Wangda Zuo（左旺达博士）
摘要: This presentation introduces our research in developingan open-source, free software package which provides practical, end-to-end(from the IT equipment to heat rejection to the ambient) modeling andoptimization for data center cooling. It can be used as a stand-alone tool bydata center designers, service consultants and facility managers, or beintegrated into existing data center management software for autonomous optimaloperation. It will be the first practical tool that couples the modeling ofairflow-management and cooling systems to enable a global data center coolingoptimization. Its self-learning regression model enabled by an in situ adaptivetabulation algorithm and a fast fluid dynamics model can predict the criticalairflow information under various operational conditions within a fewmilliseconds. The equation-based modeling language allows a fast and flexiblemodeling of various cooling system configurations. We will demonstrate theusage of our tool at two data centers located in two different climate zones.
