  • A practical approach to developing a UPS system/specification
    A practical approach to developing a UPS system/specification Mike Elms, National Sales Manager, Socomec Power Conversion Recorded: Jun 8 2017 75 mins
    With the increasing growth of, and dependence on, digitisation the demand and expectation of instant on-demand IT services has never been greater. Loss of availability is just not an option for any IT service provider.

    A vital element in providing this is the installation of a UPS system to provide clean, stabilised, and uninterrupted electrical power to critical IT infrastructure. Add to this the continuing rise in energy prices means that making an informed judgement of the right type, and topology, of UPS system to install is of vital consideration not only from a customer perspective but also from a commercial and CSR environmental standpoint.

    In this webinar Mike Elms will look at the main drivers for UPS development over the last 20 years from the traditional monolithic standalone blocks to the latest high-efficiency modular systems now becoming more commonplace, and how these UPS units are designed into the most commercial topologies whilst still maintaining the market demands of high availability, low maintenance, and lifetime costs.

    Finishing with an aide memoire to assist any potential user of UPS systems in making a more informed evaluation of varying proposed systems versus their actual requirements.

    Key discussion points include:
    History and Evolution of UPS systems
    UPS Internals – Rectifier/Inverter/Booster/Static Switch
    Transformer / Transformeress design
    Standalone v Modular
    UPS Systems Topology/Architecture
    Battery Systems – Sizing/Containment/Isolation
    Sizing a UPS System – Practical Example
    Producing a Technical Specification
    Evaluating Tech Submittals
