Development Trend of Modular UPS Power

Initial UPS development over 10 years have gained considerable development in its stability, reliability, market share and other aspects. Since the concept was proposed, it is designed to meet the needs of users for improving the availability, reliability, maintainability and energy saving characteristics of power supply systems. Various manufacturers have been continuously developing and launching new modular products.

Compared with the traditional single machine, it has great advantages in terms of system reliability, maintainability, scalability, performance parameter indicators, volume weight, cost, etc., and has significant energy saving and consumption reduction effects.

While the country ‘s slogan of advocating environmental protection and energy saving, the green energy-saving item has attracted much more attention. Its input power factor is above 0.999, which reduces line losses and improves power utilization. The efficiency of the whole machine reduces losses and saves energy.

An expert from operator reply reporters that believe the modular UPS will still be the mainstream of the power supply system of the computer room in the next few years.

As energy costs continue to increase and users requirements for data center flexibility are gradually increasing, users’ requirements for UPS reliability, availability, energy efficiency, flexibility, and ease of maintenance will become higher and higher in order to meet all user needs.
With China’s vigorous development of informatization, data centers have become “big households” in urban energy consumption. Data centers account for 40% of global IT energy consumption. With the rapid development of the industry, energy saving and emission reduction in data centers are not only related to economic benefits, but also to social benefits.

From the perspective of the power distribution in the computer room, the power consumption of the power system based on UPS accounts up to around 8% of the total energy consumption in the computer room. UPS also generates power harmonics, causing harmonic pollution to the power system, along with a lot of additional losses. Building a safe, reliable, green, and energy-saving power supply environment is an important part of building a low-carbon communication network.
