The word UPS, coming from the initials of the sentence "Uninterruptible Power Supply", has become a word we all hear at least once in our lifetime. So what is a UPS? What is the latest developments in UPS technology? What should be considered when choosing a UPS?
UPS stores alternative electrical energy (AC) received from the grid as direct electrical energy (DC) in the batteries connected to them. In case of power outage, it provides you uninterrupted alternative electrical energy by using the direct energy stored in the batteries. This is not the only duty of UPS’s. They also eliminate electrical disruptions that may come from the grid. Since critical devices connected to UPS use clean energy, they are constantly under protection.
One of the most important point when purchasing UPS is the efficiency, meaning how much energy is consumed on the UPS. UPS’s constantly consume energy during their operation and this energy is spread in to the environment as heat. Buying an inefficient UPS will also create higher cooling costs to it’s users.
The latest UPS technology reached today is called "3 Level". In this technology, UPS efficiency exceeds 95%. This technology has many other superior features.
In this part of the article, if you examine the 100kVA – 400kVA DX Series 3level UPS’s made by Tescom, you will understand these benefits much better.
Tescom, which produces new generation 3level UPS; was founded in 1980 by 3 electronic engineers in Izmir to provide a wide range of power protection products for the industry and information technology sector. Today as well as a wide range of UPS products Tescom also manufactures various devices such as Static Transfer Switches, frequency and voltage converters, rectifiers and inverters. All Tescom branded power electronic equipment are produced by 20 experienced engineers and more than 250 staff.
The greatest advantage of Tescom has always been flexibility. In other words, apart from the standard product range, it can also design and manufacture according to the needs of the customers with its experienced R&D team.
Tescom AS has always made widespread use of the latest developments and technologies in manufacturing, which complies with all the necessary international standards and norms. All these past years of experience, has lead to over 150,000 manufactured power protection products which have been delivered to customers in more than 40 countries in four continents.
The increase in high power UPS systems demand has been solved by designing parallel operating UPS systems. For this, planning is required before purchasing. However, today conventional parallel UPS systems are insufficient to meet rapidly increasing energy demands. While the need for power increases, paralleling the UPS’s causes economic, logistical and technical issues. These issues have been overcome by developing modular UPS systems.
Modular UPS systems are systems consisting of UPS modules working in parallel with each other. Generally, the electrical load connected to the UPS is shared equally among the UPS modules. The power of the modules varies according to different brands and models.
The only advantage of Modular UPS Systems is not parallel operation.
