Method for a Direct Air Free Cooling with a real time hygrometry regulation for Data Center

Today, one way of Data Center cooling is using the Direct Air Free Cooling. This is an economic method of using low external air temperatures to assist in cooling the Data Center. The goal of using Full Free Air cooling to substantially is to reduce the energy consumption.

The best practice is to have a level of humidity stabilized in order to avoid any impact on the disks units and systems.

Data center humidity is often forgotten compared to temperature, but keeping it at the right level keeps computer components from failing, and energy from being wasted. Understanding the basics of what humidity is and how it affects the server room can impact how long the computer equipment lasts and how much the electricity bill costs.

Humidity is a measurement of moisture content in the air. If a data center room is too humid, condensation can build on computer components and cause them to short out. A high level of humidity can cause condensation to form on the coils of a CRAC (Computer Air Conditioner Unit), causing it to work harder to eradicate the condensation.

The classical Direct Air Free Cooling usually integrates an hygrometry regulation but we cannot plan quick external variations. In this case, the impact of it can be the loss of the Storage disks or failures on systems.

The idea of this invention is to integrate a smart method within the Direct Air Free Cooling. It can b...
