Total cost

Jef Faridi

Dear Jef

We have sensors on upstream level on MDB'S ( Main distribution Board) and they are integrated as well and linked with the DCO

Now the customer is asking to check the cost/ calculation for 1 month based on the sensors ?

can you pls suggest how can we calculate the cost for that entire data center

Thanks

Hi Waseem,

I guess you/customer might be looking for the so-called Energy Cost reports, that can be generated to calculate the cost or running specified equipment used for charge back and efficient budgeting. For more detail please see the following page: Energy Cost Report

Energy Cost report(s) would require Energy Cost license being installed.

Kind regards

Alternatives:

Assumptions:

  1. You have digital power meters capable of providing energy reading at relevant location, ie upstream, at specific distribution boards.
  2. That said digital power meter are monitored by DCE.

Alternative 1: Manual (excel) way

Generate monthly DCE summary report for the Energy sensor of the digital power meter.

Summary report will provide you minimum and maximum. The difference (max-min) is the energy consumed for the month.

Multiply that by cost ($/kWh) to get your energy cost.

 

Alternative 2: Automatic thru custom dashboard getting data from DCE's web services.

Get relevant energy reading from DCE via DCE 's web services, store, calculate and display it as separate web page.Either use 3rd party dashboard or custom develop such dashboard.
