Abstract

The containment of unwanted electromagnetic radiation and interference is a relevant topic for the system design of any electrical system, and even more for data centers. In this context, the racks hosting piles of servers are one of the main sources of electromagnetic noise. Such unwanted radiation can couple and interact with other computing machines, but also with sensitive electronic devices needed for the management and/or maintenance of the center. The aim of this work is to show how the proper stack-up of the trays in the rack gives rise to a decrease in the unwanted physical electromagnetic radiation. Based on the application of the spherical wave expansion technique, a multi-objective genetic algorithm is developed to evaluate the optimal set of rack configurations that allows for a reduction of the external radiated field. The algorithm and the implemented constraints are described, and the results are discussed.
