[VIDEO] How Flow Network Modeling Can Pinpoint Data Center Efficiency Bottlenecks – Part 211 min read

When we last talked about flow network modeling, we discussed its value in identifying efficiency bottlenecks in the various components of a data center (IT equipment, power equipment, and cooling equipment). But what’s the point of talking about it without showing examples? In today’s installment, we do just that.

Sampled from one of this year’s Airflow Management Awareness Month webinars, Aaron Wemhoff, Director of Villanova University Site of the Center for Energy-Smart Electronic Systems*, discusses the various applications of flow network modeling in regards to data center efficiency. More specifically, he discusses how the VTAS (Villanova Thermodynamic Analysis of Systems) flow network modeling tool can help pinpoint efficiency bottlenecks, particularly in looking at the thermodynamics law of exergy (i.e. the measure of not only energy itself, but the usefulness of that energy).

For more information on flow network modeling and identifying data enter inefficiencies, check out the full webinar titled, Thermal Control Strategies for Reliable and Energy-Efficient Data Centers, presented by Aaron Wemhoff and Rehan Khalid of Villanova University.

*Aaron Wemhoff is also an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Villanova University
