Data Center Fuel Oil System Case Study – Dual Ethernet
The data center operator required fast construction of a fuel system to support 8 generators of 2MW capacity each. The generators were located inside the building with 2 generators per room. (5) Bulk storage tanks are located outside aboveground and remote from the building.
The system is designed to allow a complete dual path fuel feed from the bulk storage tanks to the generators. The control system is a redundant ethernet system between controllers allowing for a minimum of control signal wiring.
The case study includes details for consulting engineers and contractors to facilitate improved system designs for critical facilities. Details include:
- General Description of Fuel System
- Design and Construction Challenges
- Operation Sequence Summary
- System Flow Diagram P&ID
- Discussions of Special Operating Features
