A Novel Control Design Approach for Server Subsystems
More InfoLess Info
The fast data center growth and cloud computing implementations drive the demands for a higher server system power efficiency to reduce data center energy cost. In this paper, a novel control strategy is explored for power optimization to key components in a server system, using the voltage regulator (VR) control as an illustrative example. The new approach is based on the unique active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) principle.
