Abstract [en]

Cooling is an extremely important process in modern data centers. Cooling systems of server rooms ensure appropriate operation conditions to IT systems, such as servers and data storage, but, on the other side, they consume a lot of energy. Current control systems, which are installed in data centers and are responsible for thermal management of the facilities, are following conservative control strategies that maintain constant thermal conditions irrespective of computer load and outside temperature, thus efficient use of energy has not been appropriately addressed by them. In this paper, a method of optimizing energy consumption while maintaining an acceptable level of thermal comfort for CPUs in the server room is proposed.In the proposed method, a behavioral thermal model for serverroom should be created first, and then thermal behavior of theserver room would be simulated under different circumstancesusing its thermal model, in order to find an optimum controlstrategy capable of retaining balance between thermal comfortand efficient use of energy. The effectiveness of the proposedmethod has been investigated via simulating a typical serverroom using MATLAB and SIMULINK and the results aredemonstrated.
