Data Center Demand Response via Server Power Management

This project investigates a novel method of demand response (DR) of the IT equipment itself, by directly restricting the power supply to servers. Such an approach is expected to yield compound demand reductions by reducing the load on the overhead systems required to support IT equipment in the data center, including power conditioning and cooling systems. The goal of this study is to gain insights into how data centers and their large electrical loads can be utilized as a grid resource by participating in DR.
