Generators Serving Small Data Center | Critical Facilities - These generators serve a small data center giving the data center backup emergency power in the event of a loss of utility. Most data centers have redundant power from the utility and backup generators. In other words, the utility will provide two sources of utility power from two different power stations or sub-stations so if one source station loses power for whatever reason the system automatically transfers to the backup source of power or the other power or substation.

EPO Switch Interruption
The key is to keep the servers running at all times unless the EPO switch is pushed. Power through a UPS system (batteries) and backup power systems including backup utility and/or back generators along with the correct switchgear or switching systems will keep the power running all the time – again unless the EPO switch is pressed. The power will continue with the emergency generators when a loss of utility is experienced as long as the emergency generators have a fuel source that is filled up as needed and that the generators are in good mechanical order.

The point is that in a data center environment (especially for financial institutions)you have a critical facility where it is very important to keep the servers up and running which means you need several backup systems and often times backup systems for the backup systems. From the electrical system to the mechanical system a critical facility needs to stay up and running even if things go awry with any one system. Another aspect of a critical facility is to have competent operators for the electrical and mechanical systems along with a great maintenance plan.
Some of this is all a part of the HVAC and Electrical Commissioning
