UPS / Inverters.

An uninterruptible power supply, also uninterruptible power source, UPS or Inverter is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source, typically mains power, fails. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide instantaneous or near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions by means of one or more attached batteries and associated electronic circuitry. The on-battery runtime of UPS and Inverters depends on the capacity and the Number of batteries connected to the system. The selection of the capacity and the number of batteries depends on the use / application.

Mikano provides a total solution from the selection of the UPS /Inverters, the supply, installation and integration with the system and commissioning of the systems.

While not limited to protecting any particular type of equipment, a UPS is typically used to protect computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor (around 200 VA rating) to large units powering entire data centers, buildings, Lifts etc up to 300KVA. (They are available as 1 Phase – 1 Phase up to 10KVA, and 3 phase - 1 phase from 5KVA up to 15KVA and 3 Phase – 3 Phase 7.7KVA onwards), available for 3 Phase balance and unbalanced loads.

While the UPS has a very short switching time and no switching time (in case of on-line UPS) which is not felt by the load, the Inverters have a switching times of about 20ms, and hence there is a visible flicker at the load and hence is used only for applications which can take the same like lamps, fans, TV etc and not used for data centre like applications.

 The best performance for the UPS and Inverters are achieved when the proper selection of the same is done.

The Other advantage of UPS and Inverters apart from providing Uninterrupted Supply is that we save a lot by not using the generator for the period.

 Charge the UPS/Inverters when NEPA is available and use when NEPA is not available. You save on Diesel/Petrol costs which are rising very fast and very high.

 You save on the maintenance cost of the generators as the running hours is very low or zero.

 You can reduce the number of back-up generators.
