TSC assisted the owner and consulting engineer for a 100,000 square foot data center supporting revenue based customer service.  The system was designed utilizing two utility services and four back-up generators.  The client had two existing engine generators sets to be interfaced with two new engine generators and then paralleled with the utility services in a closed transition configuration to ensure minimal impact on the data center operations.  In addition to the Russelectric paralleling control switchgear, TSC recommended and implemented CurrentTechnology SPD devices throughout the facility to protect from lightning based transients events, as well as events generated on the utility grids.  Also with this project TSC implemented PDI power distribution units designed in a dual input configuration to serve downstream loads so the client could achieve maximum available uptime.
