The SagFighter™ corrects short, deep sags that may be presented to the load by the incoming power system. The power necessary to maintain the load voltage and current in the presence of low input voltage is obtained by drawing additional current from the source. There are no batteries to purchase, maintain, and replace.
UST has just published a new article that will be of interest to managers responsible for maintaining UPS power-backup systems at data centers and other critical facilities. Based on UST’s recent white paper, The Weakness at the Heart of Data Center Power-Backup Systems. And the Fix, the article supports UST’s contention that the basic configuration…
UPS power-backup systems installed to protect transportation control centers and other critical facilities are set to respond to even modest over-voltage conditions. In most industrialized regions, this is not a problem, as over-voltage conditions are rare. However, in very dense urban regions, such as New York City, over-voltage is an all-too-common condition in the summer months.
Watervliet, NY – Utility Systems Technologies, Inc. (UST), a leading power-conditioning products design and manufacturing company, has identified a costly weakness in data center backup-power-system design. To alert design engineers and facility managers about the potential risks of using battery-based UPS systems to condition power, UST recently hosted a webinar titled, “Are Data Centers Trusting Their UPS Systems Too Much?”
David Wightman is the director of sales and marketing at UST. In the company’s recent webinar, Wightman discussed the risks inherent in current power-backup design at data centers. In this article, Wightman discusses a few key points in more detail.
Data centers deploy large and expensive battery-based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to ensure continuous service to a demanding customer base. But data centers that rely on their UPS systems to condition power are potentially exposing facilities to a significantly increased risk of costly downtime. In this webinar, UST makes the case for the inclusion of electronic voltage regulators (EVRs) as part of a standard power-backup system design.
While the growth of public transit systems remains inevitable, the cost of operating consistent service shows no sign subsiding. In order for transit agencies to effectively manage complex systems and growing ridership, asset management practices will be essential and usage of the most efficient, innovative and clean technologies will be a requirement.
New technologies such as reverse osmosis and micro filtration are have encouraged officials to reclaim water from some “unique” sources.
In rural parts of Texas, local water municipalities are choosing UST to help solve power quality issues.
Problem Production interruptions threatened to cause significant financial losses due to missed production deadlines for a newspaper publisher in the northern part of Texas (USA), a place famous for almost daily thunder and lightning storms. Solution The newspaper installed two 500 kVA UST SagFighter™ units, which by the publication date of this case study had…
