DRUPS

2020-06-26T16:26:49+00:00
How a DRUPS Works? DRUPS rotary flywheel UPS systems use kinetic electrical energy generated by a flywheel or multiple flywheels. Uninterruptible Power Supply consisting of a flywheel continually spinning within a vacuum suspended by magnetic force. Frictionless spinning, yet, once the GRID power fails, the momentum of...

Diesel Generator Installations

2020-06-22T08:56:08+00:00
Diesel Generator installations are the only way to ensure automatic standby power protection that really works when you need it the most. Power Protection and Diesel Generators are synonymous with each other, furthermore, the only serious way to guarantee emergency power for critical systems. Power Continuity...

Continuous Power

2020-06-12T12:38:27+00:00
Continuous Power – Uninterruptible Continuous power is a necessity for mission critical equipment. Supplying unbroken electrical input allowing a sustained level of operation when the power grid has failed. Constant power control will prevent momentary overloads or brown outs, preventing mechanical damage. Maximum contingency power  Maximum contingency power is essential...

How to size a UPS ( Uninterruptible Power Supply )

2020-04-30T12:32:53+00:00
Factors to consider in calculating UPS power. Take into account these respective power factors presented below when considering how to size a UPS:- Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) Ensure that you know what is the peak load of all the equipment to be supported by the UPS....

Generator Harmonic Issues

2020-04-27T12:49:38+00:00
Generator Harmonic issues explained Harmonic distortion increases the rms value of the output voltage and thus creates issues on Diesel Generator regulation. This is based on the rms value of sinusoidal voltage. What is more, the high time constant of the flux variations in the...

Standby or Prime Generator Power Explained

2020-06-23T15:02:19+00:00
In this power continuity knowledge base article, we will explain the differences and advantages between standby and prime generator power. Standby Generator Standby Diesel Generator means Emergency Power for use. When the main GRID supply fails during a power outage and your installed ‘Standby Generator’...

What are Brown Outs?

2020-03-31T14:58:10+00:00
Brown outs are getting more common every day in the UK. Therefore Brown outs prevention is a necessity for mission critical sites. What is a Brown Out? These occur when mains GRID supply voltage momentarily drops down. They are usually micro second drops in power....

What is an Uninterruptible Power Supply System-explained?

2020-05-07T09:49:05+00:00
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system is an emergency backup power source usually consisting of lead acid batteries supporting power electronics that converts incoming AC to DC output current to support a specified load. The UPS will provide No BREAK power to the downstream load for...

How UPS systems work for critical power supplies?

2020-04-22T15:08:43+00:00
In this article we will discuss how UPS systems work for critical power supplies in theory versus reality. UPS systems work as an instantaneous emergency backup. Electrical power source usually consisting of lead acid batteries. For larger systems it can be a Rotary Fly Wheel...
