High Efficiency AC vs. DC Power
Distribution - WP 127
Overall Power Path Efficiency Comparison
The overall efficiency of the power path is the product of the efficiencies of the UPS, the distribution wiring, and
the IT power supply given above. This is a simple calculation, as shown in Table 2:

● Servers draw their power from the 208 V high voltage (line to line) connection in North
America
● They draw their power from the 230 V low voltage (line to neutral) connection in almost every
other country
● comparison should be between 120 V and 240 V and NOT between 208 V and 240 V.
● Assume 20 amp circuits are provided to the load in either case.
● 120 V “line to neutral” distribution method is calculated as (20 amps x 120 V x 3 = 7.2 kW
● 240 V “line to neutral” distribution method is calculated as (20 amps x 240 V x 3 = 14.4 kW).
● 240 V distribution provides 100% more power than the 120 V distribution.

Site Considerations
All content in this presentation is protected – © 2008 American Power Conversion Corporation
415V Site Considerations
● Any 480V output UPS with a 5 wire output can feed the Modular PDU.
● Symmetra PX 250/500 has an integrated 480V sub-feed panel that is optimized for this type of
application.
● Neutral must be provided from the building service entrance, through the UPS, due to the
autotransformer technology implemented.
● Autotransformer technology possesses only one set of windings, and does not develop or derive a
neutral.
● UL requires all UPS sub-feed wiring to be contained in the same conduit.
● Each PDU feed will have 5 Wires (3 phases, Neutral, and Ground).
● C13/C19 input cords are acceptable for rack loads
● This voltage product will not support L5-20/L6-30 corded equipment.
● 42-inch rear clearance is required for the PDU
● This product is not compatible with the current Hot-Aisle Containment System (HACS)
● Custom 48” roof tile adapters for HACS are available thru CEG
● A solution for 36” hot aisle applications is under development
APC by Schneider Electric – Mark Tarantelli – 4 November 2008
208V Modular RPP site considerations
● What Can I Feed From These Units?
● ISX 80
•PDPM144F/PDPM72F5U fed from 225A or 150A sub-feed breaker
● PD150G6F
•PDPM144F/PDPM72F5U fed from 225A sub-feed breaker
● MGE PMM
•Four 225A sub-feed breakers for multiple PDPM144F/PDPM72F5U
•Custom option: Two 400A sub-feed breakers
● 208V panels with competitor’s UPS/PDU
•Possibilities are endless…
● ISX 100
•PDPM144F/PDPM72F5U fed from 225A sub-feed breaker
