In this comprehensive course, we will delve deeper into the intricate world of electrical and power systems that form the backbone of data centers. These systems and their components play a critical role in ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of data centers, which are responsible for consuming approximately 5% of the world's energy and are expected to consume even more in the future.
As the internet continues to grow and become an indispensable aspect of modern life, it is increasingly crucial to comprehend and support the electrical infrastructure that sustains the data centers powering the internet. This course aims to equip learners with the necessary knowledge and skills to understand and navigate the complexities of electrical systems in data centers.
The course content covers a wide range of topics, including terminology, standards, acronyms, operation, and efficiency of electrical systems and equipment in data centers. Whether you are taking a tour of a data center or are involved in its daily operations, grasping the dynamics of power distribution within these facilities is imperative to ensure the seamless functioning of the internet.
By the end of this course, learners will have a comprehensive understanding of the various aspects of electrical and power systems in data centers, enabling them to contribute effectively to the efficient and sustainable operation of these critical facilities.
