Panel discussion video from The Green Grid Forum 2012.

Interest in High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) power in data centers has fluctuated over the years. Since the Electric Power Research Institute's (EPRI) report released in 2011 on the efficiency gains to be made with DC power distribution, the question on many end users' minds has been, "How ready is the data center industry for HVDC?" A video of a recent panel discussion at The Green Grid Forum 2012 includes members of the system and facilities vendor community, researchers and end users who look at the state-of-the-art in HVDC in terms of the latest research results, practical applications, and the comparative pitfalls of AC and DC power systems in the data center.
