Last week’s top five articles included articles about lighting control requirements, VFD and motor strategies, Schneider Electric and Invensys, dc power systems, and data centers. Here they are:

1. Lighting control requirements: What's current and what to expect

This article examines lighting control requirements in various codes and standards, commissioning these controls, and what engineers may expect in the future.

2. VFD, motor strategies for energy efficiency

A variable frequency drive (VFD) often is specified to save money by reducing energy consumption in pumps, fans, compressors, or any other motor loads that may be found in a typical building. These best practices will provide the engineer with information on how to specify a VFD to meet load conditions while achieving efficiency.

3. Schneider Electric poised to "change the industrial landscape" after Invensys acquisition

Now that the Invensys acquisition deal is complete, Schneider Electric will combine the two firms’ unique discrete and process industrial portfolios, positioning it as a global market leader.

4. DC Power Systems: Keep Your Eyes Open

As efficiency becomes a dominant mantra today and in the future, dc is getting another look.

5. Averting a data center legal crisis

Engineers involved in data center design can limit their potential exposure by taking a few simple steps.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, Feb. 10-16, 2014.
