Rick Slavens of wattsON Power
Critical Power Applications mandate the need for uninterrupted conditioned power 24×7, 365 days of the year. While traditional double conversion UPS rely on inverters, a DC bus and banks of batteries, more and more operators are turning to flywheel kinetic energy storage and the benefits of a rotary UPS. In this talk we will discuss some of the critical power technologies available as well as the advantages and disadvantages for applications including industrial, healthcare, broadcast and data centers.
