  2. 2. Main messages <ul><li>CPA Modular downgrades your UPS </li></ul><ul><li>Modular Competition is present but DPA is better </li></ul><ul><li>Improve your know how in the Modular market </li></ul>
  3. 3. Content <ul><li>Why Modular UPS and its requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Application Field of Modular UPS solution </li></ul><ul><li>True modular UPS architecture (DPA) </li></ul><ul><li>The misconception of modular UPS architecture (CPA) and its actors </li></ul><ul><li>Summery : Advantages of systems with DPA </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why Modular UPS <ul><li>Improvement in semiconductor technology IGBT and Transformerless </li></ul><ul><li>A climate of increasingly demanding business High availability to reduce risk of downtime Standardize product for service optimisation Flexibility in changing configuration without third parties </li></ul><ul><li>CAPEX optimization Pay as you growth solution Less footprint (saving space) </li></ul><ul><li>OPEX optimization Less spares, only UPS modules UPS’s efficiency optimization </li></ul>
  5. 5. ≥ <ul><li>The same functional blocks on each UPS module as per standalone UPS </li></ul><ul><li>Higher efficiency ; -> Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) </li></ul><ul><li>The same or better technical performances than on stand alone; -> True redundency </li></ul><ul><li>Higher realibility availability ; -> Higher MTBF and low MTTR </li></ul><ul><li>Easy scalability ; -> Flexibility for dynamic business environment </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced footprint ; -> Less surface costs </li></ul><ul><li>Hot swappability ; -> Wireless capability </li></ul><ul><li>Front access only ; -> Easy maintenable, less operational surface needed) </li></ul>Which Requirements people expect from a true Modular UPS system Module 1 Module 2 Module 3 Extention
  6. 6. F-lexibility A-vailability T-CO Main differences between stand alone and Modular UPS Modular Non modular Pay as you grow Vertical paralleling (low space) Product standardisation Optimized efficiency Reusable modules On-Line UPS Parallel redundant Low MTTR Hot-Swap technology Power increase flexibility Power decrease flexibility Tier changes flexibility Fast reconfiguration
  7. 7. <ul><li>The load is very critical (high availability is needed) </li></ul><ul><li>The future amount of load is unknown (pay as you growth) </li></ul><ul><li>A UPS efficiency’s optimization is required </li></ul><ul><li>The available space for UPS is small (less surface and installation costs) </li></ul><ul><li>The customer is looking for added value UPS (price/performance ratio) </li></ul><ul><li>Big organizations are involved (homogeneous UPS offer) </li></ul><ul><li>The customer is looking for a flexible solution w/o additional future installation costs </li></ul><ul><li>The customer is looking for a self made repair solution </li></ul>Application Field of Modular UPS solution
  8. 8. Rectifier Battery Inverter Static by-pass LCD Display Microprocessor UPS’s functional block A true modular UPS architecture (Standalone system)
  9. 9. A true modular UPS architecture (Standalone system) A modular UPS is considered a TRUE modular only when each UPS module is equipped with all functional blocks (rectifier, inverter,static by-pass, LCD display, microprocessor (CPU)) and with dedicated battery capability in order to avoid Single Point of Failure
  10. 10. A true modular UPS architecture (Parallel system) Input Output Output Input
  11. 11. A modular UPS is considered a TRUE modular only when the UPS modules are hot-swappable and the frame is full front accessible for service and maintenance purpose. An hot swappable UPS module is the one which can be removed from the frame while it is powered on and does not require a reboot of the system, load transfer to raw mains or load’s shut down A true modular UPS architecture (Operational)
  12. 12. <ul><li>Decentralized LCD display </li></ul><ul><li>Decentralized microprocessor </li></ul><ul><li>Decentralized battery </li></ul><ul><li>Decentralized static by-pass </li></ul>Output Input . . . A true modular UPS uses DPA Decentralized Parallel Architecture DPA
  13. 13. The misconception of modular UPS architecture : Centralized Parallel Architecture (CPA) DPA Output Input Output Input CPA Output Input CPA Output Input CPA

  16. 16. Centralized Parallel Architecture (CPA) Failure on CPU The system is out of control and may: go on by-pass or stop the operation No measurement, alarm, event log available A technical specialist is required to recover the system Single CPU based modular UPS are to a certain extend less reliable than a traditional parallel UPS systems Output Input Why DPA is more reliable compared to CPA?
  17. 17. Centralized Parallel Architecture (CPA) Failure on battery No back up in case of mains failure Even with multiple battery’ strings the autonomy time is substantially reduced Immediate intervention is needed With single battery, a modular UPS is less reliable than a traditional parallel UPS systems Output Input Why DPA is more reliable compared to CPA?
  18. 18. Centralized Parallel Architecture (CPA) Failure on LCD display No measurement, alarm, event log available A technical specialist is required to recover the communication and control of the UPS With single LCD display, a modular UPS is less reliable than a traditional parallel UPS systems Load Mains Why DPA is more reliable compared to CPA?
  19. 19. Centralized Parallel Architecture (CPA) Failure on Static by-pass In case of overload, long short circuit or inverter failure, the load transfer is not possible even in case with a centralized bypass in 2 nd frames A technical specialist is required to recover the UPS The by-pass must be rated at its final load capability since the starting phase No flexibility in case of configuration changes With single static by-pass, a modular UPS is less reliable than a traditional parallel UPS systems Output Input Why DPA is more reliable compared to CPA?

  24. 24. <ul><li>Each critical component is redundant > no single point of failure </li></ul><ul><li>Each module in case of any component failure can be isolated from the parallel system in a secured manner </li></ul><ul><li>Quick shut-down of the module if front accessable </li></ul><ul><li>Whatever the component failure, the system does not go overload but keep supplying the load with maximum safety, and that is on inverter </li></ul><ul><li>Seperate battery configuration allows to exchange minimum quantity of battery in case of premature usage: Mix of battery (new / old) can be avoided </li></ul><ul><li>Easy maintenance and repair (Safe swap) </li></ul>Summery Advantages of systems with DPA
