No-Break Power System

 

Our energy, your power.
Always on.

When Customer’s business is strictly dependent on power supply continuity, Ausonia becomes the right Energy Partner to choose.

In order to satisfy this specific need, the company has developed a range of No-Break Power Systems, integrating power generation plants and energy storage solutions, also providing significant operational advantages and impressive costs reduction.

Among this range, Ausonia includes containerized All-In-One solutions, including a backup diesel generator, UPS and a Flywheel-based energy storage system.

This last one consists of a high speed rotating mass, which, during discharging phase, reduces its rotation speed, returning the stored energy. Compared to the use traditional battery packs or DRUPS (motor-generator connected with a freewheel clutch to a diesel engine), the use of Flywheels provides several operational advantages and an higher quality of the stored energy.

AUSONIA solutions Competitors solutions
“Double Conversion” technology
(Voltage and frequency output regulation)
Limited to “Line Interactive” technology
(Voltage output regulation only)
Higher efficiency (96 - 98%) Lower efficiency (95 - 97%)
Battery integration options No battery integration options
Higher range of energy storage capabilities Lower range of energy storage capabilities
No Bearing Changes Bearing Change every 4 years
(No down-time / no relevant costs) (Down-time and relevant costs)

Additionally, with a direct comparison to batteries, Flywheels also guarantee an “always ready” energy. In fact, batteries typically requires several hours under charge to recover their full state of charge (due to internal chemical process), while flywheels only typically need 7-15 minutes to reach their full storage capacity.

Technology comparison Flywheel Batteries
Installation cost Low High
Footprint Low Medium to large
Maintenance Low High
Life expectancy 20 years 2-3 years
Standby cost Low Medium
Air conditioning costs Low High
Recharge Rapid Slow
Diagnostics & Monitoring Accurate Difficult
Known state of charge Yes Unpredictable
MTBF High (50,000 hrs) Low
Operating temperature range Broad Narrow
Hazardous materials None Yes
Toxic gas emissions None Yes
Disposal requirements None Yes
