Vertiv takes charge of the UPS industry with silicon carbide converters

The system claims an impressive double conversion efficiency of up to 97.5 percent. And in dynamic online mode, efficiency is further enhanced to up to 98.8 percent.

India’s power sector has undergone significant reforms and transformation but still grapples with challenges such as the demand-supply gap, financial losses, and grid stability issues. Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) systems can help mitigate some of these issues by enhancing the capabilities and reliability of the power system network. Vikas Srivastava explores the power industry with the EPR Magazine.

What are the key factors driving the digital transformation in the utilities sector in India?

The utility sector in India is set to undergo a massive digital transformation enabled by cutting-edge applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine learning (ML), Robotics, and Blockchain.

AI and ML can potentially optimise the power grid through smart metering, demand response, load forecasting, fault detection, and grid optimisation. This improvement enhances the power system’s efficiency, reliability, and security. Robotics can enhance the operation and maintenance of power plants, transmission lines, and distribution networks by providing efficient and safe maintenance, inspection, and repair.

Blockchain can transform the energy system by facilitating peer-to-peer energy trading, decentralised energy markets, and transparent transactions. This enables consumers and prosumers to participate in the energy system and benefit from it actively.

How does integrating UPS systems contribute to the resilience of power in India?

India’s power sector has undergone significant reforms and transformation but still grapples with challenges such as the demand-supply gap, financial losses, and grid stability issues. Uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems can help mitigate some of these issues by enhancing the capabilities and reliability of the power system network. Moreover, UPS systems can elevate power quality and efficiency while reducing technical losses in the distribution system. Therefore, integrating UPS systems is an important strategy for bolstering the resilience of India’s power infrastructure.

How have energy conservation programmes like Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) registration helped in energy management initiatives?

Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) registration is instrumental in driving energy management initiatives by promoting the uptake of energy-efficient technologies and practices across sectors. Benefits include empowering consumers to make informed choices about energy-saving products, giving companies a competitive edge, and showcasing a commitment to conservation. Moreover, it aids the government in monitoring sectoral energy performance, facilitating policy implementation for enhanced efficiency. Ultimately, BEE registration reduces national energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, aligning with domestic objectives and international climate targets.

How do your company’s UPS systems drive energy management initiatives and offer innovations aligned with the smart utility sector?

Vertiv has introduced silicon carbide (SIC)-based converters with an impressive double conversion efficiency of up to 97.5 percent. Moreover, efficiency is further enhanced to 98.8 percent in dynamic online mode. These converters offer significant operational cost savings for UPS and its associated upstream distribution and contribute to overall efficiency. Additionally, we have unveiled new technologies such as Grid Interactive UPS, enhanced batteries, microgrids, and distributed energy resources. These innovations will play a vital role in supporting the electric grid and creating new revenue streams.

How is your company preparing for ‘India Smart Utility Week’?

We are launching a social awareness initiative on energy efficiency and sustainability, promoting related blogs in preparation for ‘India Smart Utility Week’. Vertiv is spearheading a targeted campaign aligned with our goals. Together, we aim to raise awareness and inspire action for a greener, more sustainable future.
