Abstract

The traditional data centre (DC) infrastructure is being
significantly extended by modern information technology
(IT) trends on one side, and lasting calling for DC
sustainability on the other. A holistic DC management
will be necessary to coordinate different DC processes
and to dock the DC environment into modern cities and
district infrastructure. A development of such a complex
management requires comprehensive testing possibilities.
The testing is hardly possible on the real DC infrastructure
due to the mission critical nature. Building energy
modelling methods offer a suitable platform for the
development of a safe and reliable testing environment.
This paper deals with new application of Building Energy
Simulation (BES) method and introduces a workflow for
virtual closed-loop testing of enhanced multi-domain
operation for data centres
