Stuxureware DCO calculates all airflow and environmental predictions based on name plate

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Eric Clark on 2018-07-06


This is according to your own videos.

If the videos produced by APC stuxureware were incorrect, I apologize for any misunderstanding.

Why? Why use name plate - assuming that data is being provided - 

The odds that any 1 device will EVER draw 100% of the name plate are small - the odds that 100% of your devices will draw 100% of their name plates at the same time - which is what struxureware is apparently assuming - that's less likely than everyone who reads this winning the lottery, one person at a time, one person per week, on consecutive weeks.

Presuming we have data coming in to struxureware - "information" - why is that data not used to assist us with "management?"

Providing me with environmental calculations based on situations that are orders of magnitude beyond the worst case is not useful and provides little useful insight into my facility. I am forced to figure out for myself the TRUE environment.

Based on the assumption you have data (power consumption) coming to the system;  Predicted Power is a better strategy instead of using Adjusted Name Plate instead.

 

Predicted power uses past measured data for capacity planning, which is taken for environmental calculation, instead of name plate rating.

 

For more details:

About predicted power

Adjusted nameplate or predicted power

Hi Eric (Eric Clark),

In addition to what Chris has kindly suggested, for more realistic temperature simulation, I would suggest associating temperature sensors (into the setup) and then running the 3D view/temperature map in "Measured plane".

Kind regards

Hi Eric Clark, 

can you share a link to the video you were watching?

Thanks,
