Century Link Data Centers

Multiple Locations

Bowman provided short circuit analysis, protection device coordination study, and arc flash analysis for three Century Link data centers in Virginia, Colorado and Washington.  We provided appropriate equipment ratings and settings for all adjustable overcurrent protective devices that are installed in the data centers.  The Arc Flash Studies were conducted to calculate the potential arc flash energy at electrical equipment in the system. When the power studies were complete, labels were installed on each piece of equipment. The labels identify incident energy available, arc flash hazard boundary, arc flash hazard category and protective equipment required, when working on equipment that is energized.
