Thermic training of Google’s employee

About ten people from Google are training the laboratories of the CeREF Technique building. A training course created especially for them covers the operating principles of cooling systems used in data centers.

We present cooling equipements used in datacenters to remove heat from the hot air in the computer room and rejected to the atmosfer. We propose to do experiments on real sized devices : heat exchangers, refrigeration cycles and cooling towers. From measurement of temperature, pressure and flow rate, we try to identify the performances and the possible sources of trouble shootings. The module covers the use of water in cooling process and the water characterisation to understand the principles of the operation of water treatment technologies and water chemistry that are core to the field of data centers facilities engineering.

This training is integrated in a 3-days training of Google team. Their profils come from electronic team from Finland, Irland, Holland and Belgium.
