Title: Data Center Operation Simulation
Level: Advanced
Description: Tasks
Data centers are one of large energy consumers with over 35% of energy used for cooling. Energy efficiency is an important issue for data centers. Data center infrastructure modeling and operation simulation are one approach to investigate energy saving potential. The tasks of this thesis work is to further develop data center infrastructure simulation models with MATLAB/SIMULINK to cover subsystems, for example, data center IT system, cooling system and power supply system. Modeling and simulation work will focuses on power consumptions and interactions among subsystems. The simulation models will be used for optimal operation of data centers as industrial processes with various operation scenarios.

Proposed activities
• Literature survey and study earning knowledge on state-of-the-art.
• Develop data center infrastructure simulation models in MATLAB/SIMULINK for
specified systems
• MATLAB/SIMULINK simulations for operation scenarios
• Verify results from the developed models with available data
• Master thesis project report and presentation
