Review of Four Studies Comparing Efficiency of AC and DC Distribution for Data Centers
APC
Posted March 6, 2013 by in Data Center

DC is proposed for use in data centers as an alternative to AC distribution primarily based on publicized claims of efficiency improvements and energy savings. This paper shows that the most widely cited values for quantitative improvements are wrong and grossly overstate the efficiency differences between AC and DC, and that the latest AC and DC systems provide effectively the same efficiency. This paper compares the results of four different publicized studies and explains the assumptions and mistakes that have led to erroneous but widely circulated beliefs about the efficiency benefits of DC power distribution.
