Project Report On Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) have become an indispensable element of many data processing installations (EDP), from desktop PC’s to mainframe computer systems. UPS systems provide a measure of insurance and security for the user who is concerned about data loss and hardware failures caused by power disturbances. The measure of insurance needed is proportional to the financial impact of the downtime caused by such an incident.
More recently, the introduction of computer based control systems in manufacturing and process control applications has prompted the need for UPS system in industrial facilities as well. Typical applications range from distributed PLC based controls to complete Distributed Control Systems (DCS) with power requirements ranging from 3 to 50 KVA. In addition to new plant construction, many older plants are upgrading both pneumatic and single loop control systems to distributed control, primarily to improve operating efficiency. Fundamental philosophical differences in system architecture indicate that industrial computer applications require different design parameters than their data processing counterparts and while UPS’s in commercial applications have largely become commodity items, industrial UPS systems remain an engineered product.
Project Report On Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) Conclusion:
In conclusion, there are many things to consider when specifying a UPS for industrial applications, only a few of which have been covered here. We’ve learned that industrial UPS systems generally have a high initial cost than their computer room counterparts. They are also more reliable and will be serviceable for the life of the plant. A cost justification based on the 15 to 20 year plant design life will show the cost of ownership for the industrial unit to be considerably lower. If you factor in the possibility of one incident traceable to the UPS that causes plant down time it becomes a foregone conclusion that spending a little more on the front end can save a substantial amount of money in the long run.
