|Title:||Rack-based Data Center Temperature Regulation Using Data-driven Model Predictive Control|
|Keywords:||Data Center;Temperature Control;Data-driven Model;MPC controller|
|Abstract:||Due to the rapid and prosperous development of information technology, data centers are widely used in every aspect of social life, such as industry, economy or even our daily life. This work considers the idea of developing a data-driven model based model predictive control (MPC) to regulate temperature for a class of single-rack data centers (DCs). An auto-regressive exogenous (ARX) model is identified for our DC system using partial least square (PLS) to predict the behavior of multi-inputs-single-output (MISO) thermal system. Then an MPC controller is designed to control the temperature inside IT rack based on the identified ARX model. Moreover, fuzzy c-means (FCM) is employed to cluster the measured data set. Based on the clustered data sets, PLS is adopted to identify multiple locally linear ARX models which will be combined by appropriate weights in order to capture the nonlinear behavior of the highly-nonlinear thermal system inside the IT rack. The effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated through experiments on our single-rack DC and it is also compared with proportional-integral (PI) control.|
