Dr. Jessica Bian has been the PES Secretary since 2016, and has been
elected for the PES President-Elect, 2020-2021. She is a visionary leader and
architect. She has spearheaded electric industry’s reliability metrics and grid
risk assessment. She is currently with Grid-X Partners. Before that, she
was with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Washington, DC.
Previously, she was the Director of Performance Analysis at North American
Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Under her
leadership, a total of 18 industry-wide reliability indicators were established
to determine grid reliability, adequacy, and associated risks. She is
widely recognized as a pioneer and trusted world leader in the field.
Before joining NERC, Dr. Bian was with PJM, ERCOT and Westinghouse
Electric. She published over 70 articles and received the 2014 IEEE PES Wanda
Reder Pioneer in Power award for her technical achievements. 11/1

Cooling of Hyper Scale Data Centers presents some unique challenges and it comes with several key choices such as: efficiency goals, redundancy requirements, power usage, water usage, airflow management and preparation for deployment of liquid cooling. The choice of a cooling solution will impact the building design, electrical system and the data center floor layout.
In this session, we will explore these choices and their trade-offs as a data center architect works towards a selection of a cooling system. We will also include some related electrical issues such as load shedding, peak power, electrical room cooling and the collaboration between electrical and mechanical engineering in cooling solutions.
Trends in Hyper-Scale Data Center cooling systems
Large thermal system types and their pros and cons
Free-cooling economization options
Impact of the thermal system design on the electrical architecture and the data center floor layout
Considerations for the future and liquid cooling
Electrical room cooling

Severe weather events such as hurricanes, torrential rains,
snowstorms and wildfires are becoming the norm around the world. The most
significant of those risks for a business that relies on electricity to keep
its operations running is one that pertains to the availability and quality of
power from the utility electricity grid. At the same time, electricity is
a large and growing component of operation costs for many businesses,
especially for data centers, hospitals, military establishments, manufacturing
plants, office buildings and other facilities. Many of these facilities are
choosing to build MicroGrids incorporating on-site power generation
technologies and sophisticated load management to achieve resiliency of their
power supply as well as advancing corporate goals around sustainability and
operational cost reduction.
Topics will include:
Advanced MicroGrid architectures and
trade-offs in design choices using distributed generation
Recent examples of MicroGrid
deployments in the data center, healthcare, retail, manufacturing industry
Technology used in the solid oxide fuel cell and its reliability
