Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions
Some studies show that short-term supply interruptions are the most common problems in the power supply. This has wide-ranging consequences for the industry. Such interruptions usually last only between 300 and 500 milliseconds. But as technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the electronic components and control units of the production systems respond very sensitively to such voltage dips and micro-interruptions. The consequences range from faults to complete system failures, which are associated with high costs for the affected companies.
Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) are technical systems that protect companies from such disruptions. The UPS system based on ultracapacitors (U-UPS) from the German manufacturer FREQCON is specially designed for bridging short voltage dips up to 10 seconds in low-voltage and medium-voltage networks and represents an especially economical solution for such applications.
In this whitepaper you will learn:
- how a UPS system based on ultracapacitors works,
- where it can be used
- what advantages this solution has compared to other systems and
- concrete application examples.
