Large scale UPSâ??s have become a critical component in the electrical distribution system for data centers, hospitals, manufacturers and other sites with mission-critical operations.? Typically they use lead-acid batteries to supply power when in backup mode while generators startup.? ? Flywheel DC storage is a â??green??? alternative to strings of lead-acid batteries.? ? Our speaker will discuss the following topics in comparison to batteries:
– Reliability comparisons
– Lifecycle cost comparisons
– Energy Density
– Physical and site characteristics (temperature, size, energy density)
– Environmental and safety characteristics
– Installation Examples
If you work with applications that have a need for uninterruptible power, then flywheel DC energy storage would an important technology to be aware of and consider.? ? Please join us
