Document Description
This research will demonstrate a novel hybrid uninterruptable power supply (UPS) microturbine technology operting in an efficient combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) system at an operating data center. The demonstration will consist of three hybrid UPS microturbines connected to an absorption chiller installed at the Southern California Gas data center in Monterey Park. This project will take 33 months for design, installation, and measurement and verification. This time is necessary to ensure the microturbines can carry critical loads and meet reliability standards required for a data center for at least a year.
