The SRPMIC IT Data Center consisted of a single story building delivering 300 kVA of UPS Power to a 2,500 SF data floor. The Data Center serves the Community’s government and municipal infrastructure.
TMCx was retained by SRPMIC to provide Level 5 Integrated Systems Commissioning services, including design and submittal reviews, associated with the Mechanical HVAC, Electrical, and Fire Protection Systems. In addition to the commissioning services, TMCx provided additional training in our Building Engineering Systems Training (BEST), a 2 day on site, hands on, activity focused on problem solving and identifying root causes to operational issues.
TMCx completed this project without any change orders submitted
Resolution: After meetings with the design and construction teams, it was determined that the input filters installed on the UPS’s were causing the leading power factor, and removal of these devices would eliminate the issue. Once removed, testing continued without further issue.
Resolutions: a programming change was made to run the equipment at 50% design air instead of an “N plus One” scenario. While this did not increase the outside air, it was an acceptable solution to the Engineer of Record.
