Server rooms in cloud computing data centers need to stay typically below 25ºC to prevent server overheating. Proper cooling equipment needs to be designed to ensure constant temperature, as well as to accurately control the humidity in order to avoid static electricity or condensation. With the increasing density of servers in rooms, Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems require advanced reliability and safety, highly efficient motor drives and an increased level of integration.
