Outcomes

Numen underpins all efforts to optimise future data centres

It is widely understood that innovative technology solutions will be required to solve the opposing forces of growing energy demand and carbon reduction

Numen is designed to empower data centre operators with the data and the information to accurately identify the highest priority focus areas that might require investment in technology solutions but importantly, also areas that can be addressed by organisational or operational changes.

Numen secondly establishes a baseline before changes are made and validates the outcomes. This allows operators to ensure the desired result are achieved.

Lastly Numen will monitor on a continuous basis the vital statistics of the data centre to ensure the long term improvements of changes and to provide timely notifications for issues that might adversely affect efficiency and reliability.

Recommendations

Power quality analysis

Analyse power quality and monitor for subtle changes that could affect sensitive computer equipment

  • Detail data on variations in supply power
  • Notifications on changing supply that might cause issues with computer equipment e.g. Voltage and/or Frequency changes.

Numen Web Console Phase balance analysis

Analyse phase balance and distribute loads evenly for optimal energy efficiency

  • Unbalanced phase loading results in wasted energy (current on Neutral)
  • Unbalanced loads can cause line overloads and unnecessary circuit breaker trips
  • Unbalanced loads can also cause a fire hazard on undersized neutral cables
  • Numen can assist to distribute loads (e.g. new computer equipment) evenly across the three phases, resulting in optimal energy efficiency.

Numen Web Console Individual device performance

Analyse the performance of individual devices with the chart engine

  • Visualise and compare various parameters of different devices on a site or across multiple sites
  • High data resolution (up to 10 seconds)
  • Overlay other data sources e.g. weather data
  • Instant data summary (including cost and CO2)
  • Export data for further analysis
  • Bookmark data for later

Validate Improvements

Numen Web Console Energy Consumption Report

Up-to-the-minute reports empowers optimal use of energy resources

  • Consumption Reports e.g. Monthly Consumption comparisons between multiple sites
  • Consumption Forecasts
  • View kWh, Cost (e.g. $ or £) or CO2 Emissions
  • Maximum Demand (hover to see details including exact time of max. demand and highest consuming devices at this time)

Numen Web Console Device Consumption Ranking Report

Compare operation of individual devices of a device fleet. Easy to identify outliers.

  • Easily identify and rank heaviest consuming devices
  • Track individual device consumption, cost and CO2 emissions
  • Monitor and compare device power factors and other operating parameters
  • Track phase balance of 3-phase devices and 3-phase generation
