TOP Fugaku Supporting Facilities
To operate a supercomputer, electricity is surely a necessity, while a cooling system is also needed to remove the heat generated by computing.
Some of the supporting facilities and equipment of the K computer is reused in the support of Fugaku. Since power consumption and thus heat increased when compared with those of the K computer, the cooling system and power equipment needed to be strengthened. The existing cogeneration power plant and high voltage power substation were adopted for Fugaku.
