Choosing the right energy storage solution for your UPS is paramount in making sure your critical load is supported during a power quality event and preventing downtime. Making this choice in today's data centers is becoming ever more challenging due to multiple considerations such as run time, footprint, upfront costs, maintenance costs, and overall total cost of ownership. With years of experience and multiple storage solution offerings, Mitsubishi Electric can help you size and choose the correct storage solution to best fit your critical application needs.
Mitsubishi Electric offers a full range of battery storage solutions and battery vendors allowing the flexibility to meet the backup power requirements of today’s data centers and customers.
Flywheel kinetic energy storage systems offer a reliable and robust alternative to traditional lead-acid based battery systems for short run time applications or where lead-acid batteries are a concern. They offer a high power density in a small footprint while reducing the cooling requirements needed for traditional battery solutions. With low maintenance, low lifecycle cost, no periodic replacement, and no hazardous materials, flywheel-based storage systems provide an environmentally friendly solution to back up power. These systems can be paired with a UPS as single unit or paralleled together for applications that require 30-40 seconds of backup power.
Battery failure is the leading cause of UPS load loss during a power outage so monitoring and maintaining your batteries is key to making sure your critical load is supported. Through the use of battery monitoring systems, you can proactively check the health of your battery system instead of merely reacting when a problem occurs. This will not only reduce maintenance costs and unplanned outages, but also increase maintenance efficiency and battery life while providing the ability to better manage replacement planning. Mitsubishi Electric’s experts can partner with you to choose the battery monitoring system that provides you the data and peace of mind to know that your batteries will be available when they are needed the most.
