Figure 1: 48 V server architecture in a typical data center

Introduction Approximately half of the energy consumed in a typical data center is wasted, either during power conversion or through cooling. Given the increasingly urgent requirement to reduce CO2 emissions, this undesirable situation required addressing at both system and converter levels. Research [1] indicates that using 48 V power distribution at the rack level would help to reduce power los
