Emergency power systems ensure an energy supply independent of the power grid. They are not only used in critical facilities such as hospitals, chemical plants, control centers, but also in computer centers and office buildings.
From diesel generators for large-scale systems to battery storage units that take over the buffering of short power failures. We are pleased to advise you and implement your project.
There are different types of emergency power systems. Which system you choose depends largely on the area of application and the requirements. We are happy to support you here as well.
Power generation unit
Power generation units (SEA) consist of a drive unit - usually a combustion engine (diesel or petrol) - and a generator that converts the mechanical energy of the engine into electrical energy.
A distinction is made here between stationary and mobile power generation units. Stationary SEA are preferably installed in buildings and planned as long-term grid replacement and peak load systems. Mobile generators can be transported and are therefore very suitable for temporary solutions.
When operating a power generation unit or changing to its supply, there are short-term interruptions in the energy supply.
Uninterruptible power supply
To avoid an interruption of the power supply, the emergency power system must be supported by an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). This can ensure the supply of power to critical systems, for example in hospitals or data centers.
The UPS ensures the power supply of critical electrical devices in case of disturbances in the power grid. Short-term power failures and power fluctuations in the form of overvoltage or under voltage thus have no negative impact on the safety of the systems.
Emergency power system
Mains backup systems, also known as general back-up power supplies (AEV), provide power to selected consumers or system parts when there are disturbances in the general power grid. In this case, emergency generators or batteries take over the further supply. When switching over to the AEV, short-term voltage dips may occur.
