1 Three-hase Electric ower Distribution for Computer Data Centers WHITE AER E901 Geist January 008 Summary This paper will describe the characteristics of three-phase power and outline the advantages of distributing power with a three-phase circuit for power transmission, in general, and more specifically in the distribution of power in a computer data center facility. The advantages of three-phase power distribution will be compared to single-phase distribution and metrics for comparison will be presented and clearly explained for the purpose of understanding costs and the flexibility for a growing and changing data center environment

2 Benefits of three-phase circuits for power distribution A three-phase power circuit, also referred to as a polyphase (more than one phase) circuit, provides more power for the same current than would a single-phase circuit. Three-phase circuits are used in power distribution systems for the following reasons; Higher power transmission for the same electric current Less copper required for the same power transmission Safer or lower voltages transmitted due to multiple phases Reduced need for hot work on panel due to more available power and multiple voltage options These multiple three-phase shifts are created at the power generation station. The AC generator s rotating magnetic field passes three sets of independent windings, each of which is 10 degrees apart. Figure 1: Three-phase power transmission The advantages of a three-phase power distribution system over a single-phase system can be demonstrated in the following circuits. For purposes of comparison, both circuits will maintain an equivalent power capacity and load. A single-phase system with three loads connected directly in parallel has a conductor current of 15 amps. To carry this 15 amp load a single copper conductor, while observing NEC Article at 75 C, Would need to be 1 AWG. The weight of copper in this 1 gauge wire is roughly 3 pounds per 100 foot of conductor length and at \$3.40 per pound for copper has a total cost of \$109 for 100 feet of bare copper material. rocessing costs for the conductor and insulator would be significantly higher. In comparison, a three-phase system with three 5 kw loads connected directly in parallel has a conductor current of 4 amps. This is significantly less than the 15 amps required for the conductor of a single phase system. Figure : Amperage in a single-phase circuit 15 amps 10 VAC Figure 10 3: 0 Amperage in a three-phase circuit amps 4 amps To carry the 4 amp load, the copper conductor would need to be 8 AWG. This 8 gauge wire weight is about 5 pounds per 100 feet and a total cost of \$17 for the bare copper material amps 0 amp Neutral

3 The three-phase circuit that we have demonstrated would require an additional conductor over a single-phase circuit. The following copper weight and cost is adjusted for this additional conductor and is shown in table 1. Table 1: Conductor weight and cost comparison for single versus three-phase transmission 1 Total Load Conductor Current Conductor Gauge Conductor Weight (100 ft) Conductor Cost (100 ft) Single-hase 15 amps 3 x 1 AWG 96 pounds \$37 USD Three-hase 4 amps 4 x 8 AWG 0 pounds \$68 USD Note: Single phase shown uses 3 wires (Hot-Neutral-Ground). Three-phase shown allows only 08V output and uses 4 wires (Hot-Hot-Neutral-Ground). A three-phase system that allows 10V and 08V output uses 5 wires (Hot-Hot-Hot-Neutral-Ground). A three-phase system delivers more power with smaller gauge conductors than a single-phase system of the same amperage. The benefits of this are; Lower copper cost Fewer circuit breaker pole positions for 08V loads Lower labor and equipment to handle and manage lighter copper Lower system voltage for a safer work environment Three-phase systems achieve greater conductor efficiency and reduce the safety risks by breaking the total voltage into additional parts and by powering multiple loads at these lower voltages. Another important benefit of three-phase power over single-phase power is the ability to efficiently run AC motors and pumps in a facility. Each conductor is carrying the same current at the same frequency but reach their instantaneous peak values at different times in the phase cycle. This is effective in creating an efficient rotating magnetic field for an electric motor because each phase is delayed by 1/3 of the total phase cycle and provides a constant power source to the load. Anatomy of Three-hase ower and Transmission In general, there are two types of three-phase circuits, a Delta three-phase and a Wye three-phase circuit. It is not necessary for a three-phase circuit to have a neutral wire. The purpose of a neutral wire allows single phase devices to be used from a three-phase circuit. For a high voltage transmission this neutral wire is not commonly present and high voltage loads are connected across the hot (phase) conductors. The phase currents will cancel each other, summing to zero for a linear balanced load, which is desirable for electric power systems.

4 An electric generator converts mechanical rotation into alternating current. As we touched on earlier, the electric generator at the power station will generate the electric currents that are the same frequency but offset by 10 to provide the three phases. This system typically creates voltages up to 30,000 volts and step-up transformers are used to make this voltage desirable for efficient transmission. Typical three-phase transformers are star or Wye connected. Another system, more common to North America is a Delta circuit where the center tap on one winding supplies the ground. The Wye and Delta three-phase circuits are demonstrated in Figure 4. Wye circuits are more commonly found in data center environments, while Delta configurations are more common in heavy industrial and manufacturing environments. The Wye circuit provides two different supply voltages for each phase or leg of the circuit. oly-phase loads are connected phase-to-phase and single phase loads are connected phase-to-neutral. hase unbalance current would be carried by the neutral conductor for a Wye circuit. The line amperage in a Wye circuit is equivalent to the phase amperage where the phase-to-phase voltage is 1.73 or 3 times the phase-to-neutral voltage. A few typical Wye circuit voltages are 10/08Y, 77/480Y, 400/4160Y, and 700/1470Y. hase-to-phase connection for higher power devices is usually accomplished with a two-pole breaker. For instance, a single phase line to line circuit with 08 Volt potential will provide 1.73 times more power for the same 10V line to neutral single phase connection while using the same conductor size. The sinusoidal wave form of a three-phase circuit is demonstrated in Figure 5. Figure 4: WYE and Delta three-phase circuits Wye Circuit L1 10 V 30 V N L3 L Delta Circuit L1 10 V G 40 V L3 L Figure 5: Sinusoidal three-phase wave form For each of the conductors in a three-phase cable, color coding for the conductor insulator jacket for US and Canada usually follows the guidelines shown in Table : Table : Conductor jacket color coding for US and Canada Location of Standard United States (common practice) Canada (mandatory) United States (alternative) Canada (isolated cases) L1 L L3 Black - Red - Blue Red - Black - Blue Brown - Orange - Yellow Orange Brown - Yellow Neutral - Ground White or Gray - Green White - Green White or Gray - Green White - Green As we continue to uncover the advantages of three-phase power distribution to reduce costs, provide flexibility for a growing and changing data center environment and for the need to balance power loads for the entire data center facility, only Wye circuits will be discussed as this is the typical circuit used in data center facilities throughout North America.

6 Typical three-phase DU to IT equipment distribution schemes With modern HD and Blade equipment having a variety of cable inputs, the default standard at the rack power strip is typically IEC C19 receptacles. With few exceptions, if a IT equipment manufacturer uses a special server plug or cord, the equipment manufacturer will supply a conversion cord to take the plug type to an IEC C13 or IEC C19 depending on maximum power draw. The following are two examples of power distributed to racked equipment. Figure 8: ower Distributed to four H C- class chassis H C-class ower offers three variations for the power connection: 1. Single-phase IEC C19-C0 power connection. Three-phase L15-30 power connection 3. Three-phase IEC309 5 pin 16A connection The example to the right represents the power distribution scheme for three-phase power to the rack power strip and single phase from the strip to the IT equipment. The scenario has four H C-class Blade Chassis connected to two 80A three-phase rack power strips. In this scenario, with one power supply failure on a chassis and A or B feed down, the chassis still retains power without tripping a power strip branch breaker. Figure 9: ower Distributed to an IBM BladeCenter chassis ower ower Circuit 1 Domain Domain 1 Circuit IBM BladeCenter chassis connect to rack power strips with four C19-C0 power cords when redundant power supplies are installed. The chassis is divided into two power domains. Two power supplies represent domain one and the other two redundant power supplies represent domain two. Domain one powers blades 1-6 and Domain two power blades The power supplies are load balancing and are capable of providing up to 4000W DC power. If there is a power related failure and a single 000W power supply is required to do all the work, then the BladeCenter management module will manage the power. If the impacted power domain is drawing more then 000W, then the clock speed will be slowed to manage power below 000W.

7 Conclusion Three-phase circuits are used in power distribution systems to allow higher power transmission for the same electric current, require less copper for the same power transmission, are safer due to lower voltages transmitted over multiple phases and reduce the need for panel hot work due to more available power and multiple voltage options. Bringing three-phase to the rack will; Lower material and installation costs Lower installation time with fewer whips to pull Less wire under floor improves airflow and reduces wiring confusion and mistakes Simplified load balancing with all phases available in the rack, balance at the rack has positive effects on the entire facility A three-phase system with a total 1 load and a conductor current of 4 amps is significantly less amperage than the 15 amps required for a conductor of a single phase system. A three-phase 100 foot 4 amp load has a conductor weight of 0 lbs. at a rough cost of \$70 USD versus a single-phase 100 foot 15 amp load with a weight of 96 lbs. at a rough cost of \$330 USD. A three-phase system delivers more power with smaller gauge conductors than a single-phase system of the same amperage with lower copper cost, fewer circuit breaker pole positions for 08V loads, lower labor and equipment to handle and manage lighter copper and lower system voltage for a safer work environment. Threephase systems achieve greater conductor efficiency and reduce safety risks by breaking the total voltage into additional parts and by powering multiple loads at these lower voltages.

It is common practice in many regions to identify 10/08Y conductors as Black/Red/Blue. Local regulations may amend the N.E.C. Note : The U.S. National Electric Code does not specify coloring of phase conductors. It is common practice in many regions to identify 77/480Y conductors as Brown/Orange/Yellow. Local practice may amend the N.E.C. The US N.E.C. rule (5) states these colors are to be used for isolated power systems in health care facilities. Color of conductors does not identify voltage of a circuit, because there is no formal standard.
