Balanced Power system?
What is at risk?

6SigmaPower is a module designed to allow you to evaluate your power infrastructure, enabling you to consider the immediate and secondary effects of the failure of any individual component of the power system.

The module can be used with 6SigmaRoom and 6SigmaFM to add all the logical power connections in your facility to the Virtual Facility. Once included, 6SigmaRoom or 6SigmaFM will automatically check the power system for overload in both the normal operation state and for any single point of failure.

As well as reporting the power system’s Total Power Capacity and the Current Total Power Draw, the Room summary also reports the worst failure scenarios – allowing managers to take preventative measures if necessary.

  • Resources

    Evaluate your power infrastructure
     Check and balance load
across your system      ensuring on the way you do not exceed PDU and UPS      limits.


Be prepared for the worst

Study worst case scenarios of a single point failure including potential cascade from the resulting outage.

 Define all key power components including:

     - Utility supplies;
     - Transformers;
     - Static transfer switches;
     - UPSs;
     - PDUs;
     - Fuse / breaker panels and individual fuses / breakers;
     - Power strips;

  Define connectivity including voltage and phase; 

  Evaluate what equipment is at risk in the case of a single point of failure of any UPS or PDU;

 Evaluate what equipment is at risk as a result of a cascade failure following a single point of failure.

Hardware Recommendations

6SigmaDC is a program suite that will require different levels of hardware resource depending on the size and complexity of the models it is used to create and run.
For the sake of basic training and other small models (< 500sqft), it will run on a standard laptop with 1GB RAM and integrated graphics.
Any other modelling use is likely to require more powerful hardware.
The license server component, which can be installed separately on a remote machine, requires very little resource and should run on any supported Windows PC.
Supported Operating Systems. 32 and 64bit: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003,Windows Server 2008, Windows HPC Server 2008.
Virtual machines are not recommended.

Example configurations for mid-range systems:
Laptop - Mobile Core i7, 4-8GB RAM, Discrete graphics, 500GB HDD
Desktop - Core i7 or Xeon UP, 12GB RAM, nVidia Quadro FX 580, 1TB HDD
Server - Xeon DP or MP, 32GB+ RAM, nVidia Quadro FX 1800, 1TB HDD
