[Bldg-sim] Datacenter energy modelling

Hi all Energy Modelers,
Hope everyone is doing well.
I have been working on Energy modeling for LEED ratings like NC, CS.
However this time I have come across *LEED V4 Datacenters *rating in which
the modeling strategy is quite different.
As far as the reference guidelines say I have to make three models *(Model
1: Baseline with full IT loads, Model 2: Proposed with full IT loads, Model
3: Proposed with Initial IT loads).* However the 5% mandatory savings
mentioned has to be calculated by comparing models 1 and 2.
I have few queries which are bulleted below
· I am not quite sure why is there a need for model 3. I guess it
has to do something with PUE calculations. Can anyone help me out how model
3 will be used?
· What is the intent behind PUE calculations? PUE values of which
models are to be calculated and why?
· What are the important points need to be followed for datacenter
Also I would like if anyone has any Methods/suggestions regarding the
energy simulation methodology.
I would be using eQUEST for this purpose.
Eagerly waiting for reply
Thanks & Regards,
