Supercapacitors for uninterruptible power supplies
Supercapacitors are a new high power density energy storage system. Traditionally, the choice of storage for power backup activities has always fallen on capacitors and batteries. It is true to say that capacitor technology has played a fundamental role in transmission and power supply applications for many decades.
However, in recent years substantial research and development has led to significant progress in the design and use possibilities of capacitors. These enhancements are called supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors) and can be used in energy storage and battery backup systems.
In this white paper we will analyze the use of supercapacitors as a storage system for static uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).
When used with a UPS, supercapacitors are the ideal solution for short autonomy times, environments subject to very high temperatures and for back-up power supply in critical applications. They deliver greater quality and lower costs.
Riello UPS SuperCaps solutions with supercapacitors are suitable when you need to protect critical loads from the most common problems related to energy quality and short-term blackouts.
They are reliable and efficient and can be used in particular in production environments, in healthcare facilities, and in data centers. The SuperCaps solution for back-up power supply is perfect for applications where traditional solutions with batteries cannot be used, such as in operating environments subjected to high temperatures.
