    The data center market will continue to grow strongly as data becomes more and more critical and new usages such as 5G, cloud computing and video platforms will increase demand. In addition, the number of Internet and Smartphone users will also increase significantly. For all these data centers, the availability rate is essential, and the backup generators are critical. In fact, the Data Centre generator sets market represents a CAGR of 11% from 2019 to 2022, compared to a 2% CAGR (2019-2022) for the global generator sets market.

    The power generation industry has adapted to the specific characteristics of these installations with generator sets specifically designed for Data Centres, sized according to the DCP (Data Center Power) power declaration and which comply with the regulations that apply to them.  The Uptime Institute is one of the most internationally recognised 

    organisation  that specify and certify how Data Center installations must be designed. Depending on their availability, it classifies them into four levels: Tier I, II, III, IV. The factor that defines whether a facility is in one or another level is precisely the number of available sources of continuous supply and emergency supply and its maintainability.


    CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION, DESIGN AND APPLICATION OF DATA CENTRE GENERATOR SETS


    The more critical data stored in a Data Processing Centre (DPC), the more secure the power supply that feeds it must be. For this reason, HIMOINSA generators for these projects include a redundant starting system: Either electric & pneumatic or double electric plus additional components, which ensures 100% engine starting.

    Its response is extremely fast thanks to the engine preheating with pump  . The water is kept at a minimum temperature of 40°C and so the generator set is able to start up in ten seconds. The engine for a DCP application must have an electronic speed regulator to be able to quickly reach favourable voltage and frequency conditions when a mains failure demands its start-up and once these parameters are stabilised, to keep them that way while it is running. 

    The energy consumption of these Data Centres is significant, not only for the  ordinary operation of the IT equipment , but also to keep the rooms in which they are located at the right temperature for optimal server performance (20ºC). Therefore, not only the application-specific aspects, but also the on-site conditions such as ambient temperature and altitude are taken into account when sizing the generator set.
