With the unquenchable thirst for more power, we are finding more data centers are considering medium voltage solutions that use a medium voltage alternator and ANSI C37.20.2 gear. At the same time, many staff members and contractors are hesitant to work with medium voltage systems. The solution — Generac, MPS.
By paralleling on the low voltage side and feeding one or multiple transformers, many system advantages can be realized:
- Facility staff are typically more comfortable interacting with low voltage generators.
- Low voltage equipment is much easier and quicker to source.
- Low voltage rental equipment can be used when needed.
- No medium voltage paralleling switchgear sections are required, resulting in a smaller footprint and significant cost savings
