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.

“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 optionsNo battery integration options
Higher range of energy storage capabilitiesLower range of energy storage capabilities
No Bearing ChangesBearing 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.
