ABB launches multi-MW UPS

Switzerland ABB has revealed a medium voltage uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with multi-MW ratings and a claimed efficiency of 99.5%.

ABB will initially launch the PCS100 MV UPS series into the Chinese market. “China is a key market for large UPS products where vast electronic systems in factories draw from tens to hundreds of megawatts of power,” said ABB Power Conditioning general manager John Penny and added: “It is now a major research center for much of the world’s high technology industry.”

The PCS100 MV is industrially rated, but is also set to target mega-size data centres, which have similar characteristics to semiconductor fabrication plants, stated ABB. “The trend towards free air cooling and centralized protection makes medium voltage UPS protection with an industrially rated product a very attractive solution”, noted Penny. Factory designers can locate power protection more remotely in a centralised location, away from the production, he adds. The UPS is designed to minimise life cycle costs with low loss and wide temperature range that reduce cooling costs.

The energy storage is kept at low voltage levels and therefore enables storage solutions from lead-acid batteries to supercapacitors and lithium-ion batteries, stated the supplier. The system is designed for a service life of at least ten years.

Energy Star, a joint programme established by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy, is intended to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. In a statement, Eaton said its 9PX and 9SX UPSs earned the Energy Star following stringent third-party testing and verification of meeting the programme’s energy efficiency requirements.

The certification guarantees that Eaton products are among the top 25% of most efficient UPSs on the market and allow customers to effectively reduce electrical usage and their carbon footprint.

The Eaton 9PX and 9SX UPSs were launched in EMEA in 2012 and are the next generation of energy efficient devices for 5 to 11 kVA applications.
