Welcome to the OCP Advanced Cooling Facilities (ACF) Incubation Subproject.
This Project is open to the public and we welcome all those who would like to be involved.
Mission: The Advanced Cooling Facilities Incubation Subproject mission is to develop best practices, create collaboration documents and common guidelines facilitating the integration of Advanced Cooling Solutions into Data Center Facilities.

Seeking to advance the acceptance, performance, reliability and minimize risk/cost of Advanced Cooling Solutions into any data center facility, but especially OCP Ready™ facilities.

Notes from Past Calls

Meeting Highlights, 8/11/20

- Review of Mission – o Boundary of solution – ACF current boundary focus is solution development for connection of Advanced cooling solutions to Data Center faciltiies [and beyond]. Primarily water/glycol solutions connecting to facilities water system (FWS) or condenser water.  Action item – Develop a clearer technical description – John Bean, Julius Neudorfer leading this effort - Problems to Solve – What are the key problems ACF is seeking to address o Lack of standardization on facilities side of ACS solutions leads – unique solutions = unique problems. OCP history has been to reduce challenges, cost by advancing standardization and simplification o Perception issues preventing adoption of liquid cooling – complexity, cost, risk o Adaptability/Scalability – ability to add/expand liquid cooling footprint requires planning  Action item Create tracking list of problems for ACF to address (Thank you Austin) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fnN755fuveLHEcqX_01EMsxoIwVi8iW4vccCES2fJ9A/edit?usp=sharing Workstream discussion – It was proposed that collection of case studies of deployment of liquid cooled solutions would be a logical first step. All ACF participants are encouraged to provide a technical summary case study highlighting how solutions have been deployed in existing data center facilities. It is not desired to share confidential customer information in this process, but simply providing physical parameters should be achievable without risk.

Workstreams identified at Kick-off

FWS Requirements (ACS, Liquid) • Guidance and specifications aligning facility cooling solution in support of liquid cooled IT technologies over the life of a data center [design, build, install, commission, operation]. • Connections – guidance and specifications connecting liquid cooled IT to facility pipe systems Case Study library • Showcase of successful deployments of liquid distribution over the life of a data center Reference Design Development • Example deployment strategies that can easily be modified to support a spectrum of liquid cooling solutions.

Next Steps - ACF participation inventory - in progress https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xTNRqwHnNy75Ca51IfBXhlt_6b4qW7NZByr2Jw0YC80/edit?usp=sharing - ACS Case Study Collection – in progress o Case Study input form https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F2R8w9Qn73JoXhlg8AvUYJE9lldJdnfWqgS2J4M_aEA/edit#gid=1255462178

o ACS Pipe Design Request – part of case study collection - Workstream breakout, timeline - Co-Leader – in progress - Recruitment – on-going outreach to OCP community and beyond
