Thanks to technology advancements and components such as gallium nitride (GaN) that enable ultra-high 98% efficiency and improved power densities, power loss can be reduced up to 50% compared to 96% efficient rectifiers. That’s according to a new report from Vertiv that walks readers through a breakthrough in energy efficiency that has the potential to reduce power losses over a wide load range, working to optimize CAPEX and OPEX.
Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems, explores the top 2019 data cent power trends, and highlights new perspectives and approaches to thinking about and addressing the power needs of the diverse technology that surrounds us.
Data center leaders are exploring the potential of using Gallium nitride (GaN) in power conversion equipment to increase efficiency. Although GaN has been around for a while, it’s relatively new to the data center world.
