Ensuring reliable power for the mission-critical data center was the main priority of the state-of-the-art facility and pursuing a resilient system that the utility could not provide. The client found the solution in a microgrid system, a combination of distributed energy resources (DERs) able to operate connected to a utility grid, but also able to operate completely isolated from the grid. At the heart of this microgrid is a Capstone C600 Signature Series microturbine provided by Vergent Power that simultaneously creates electricity and thermal energy for heating and cooling. The clean exhaust from the microturbine is brought to a 200-refrigeration-ton capacity absorption chiller for building cooling or can be directed to a heat exchanger to provide up to 3 MMBTU per hour of hot water for building heating. The Capstone C600S microturbine provides the backbone, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, supplying the resiliency and independency that the center sought out.
