Fuji Electric India pioneers innovative energy solutions, driving digital transformation across sectors. With a 100-year legacy, the company offers advanced power backup systems, promoting efficiency and sustainability. Deenathayalan speaks to EPR Magazine on the insights of the industry.  

Factors driving digital transformation

Several key factors drive the digital transformation in India’s utilities sector. Firstly, there is a rising demand for energy and utility services due to population growth and urbanisation. To meet this demand efficiently, utilities are turning to digital solutions. Secondly, regulatory initiatives like the Energy Conservation Act (EC Act) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) standards require utilities to adopt digital technologies to enhance energy management and compliance. Thirdly, advancements in technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) offer tools for optimising operations, real-time equipment monitoring, and predictive maintenance. 

Moreover, customer expectations have evolved, demanding digital platforms for services like billing and monitoring. Sustainability goals drive utilities to integrate renewable energy sources and improve energy efficiency through digital means. Efficient data management, competitive pressures, ageing infrastructure, and smart grid initiatives further fuel the digital transformation. Digitalisation enables utilities to enhance efficiency, meet regulatory requirements, engage customers, and work towards sustainability goals in a competitive landscape while optimising infrastructure and grid management. With over 100 Years of expertise in the power electronics business, Fuji Electric is committed to bringing innovative and advanced solutions for organisations seeking to embark on their digital transformation journey across various sectors, including utilities, manufacturing, energy, and infrastructure segments.

BEE registration 

Energy conservation programmes like BEE registration have been crucial in promoting energy management initiatives in India. BEE’s objectives include providing guidance on energy policy, coordinating energy conservation efforts, and assessing energy efficiency outcomes. BEE encourages investment in energy conservation research and development, rates the energy efficiency of appliances through its Star Labelling Scheme, and registers entities like energy auditors, energy managers, Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), and Energy Efficiency Rating Agencies. These initiatives facilitate energy audits and energy efficiency optimisation and promote informed choices, all contributing to effective energy management.

Power backup systems 

Fuji Electric’s power backup solutions are crucial in catalysing the energy management initiative. These systems offer high efficiency, achieving an outstanding efficiency of up to 99 per cent with in-house developed power semiconductor technology. Additionally, it employs T-NPC (new 3-level) conversion technology and Fuji-made RB-IGBT elements, further optimising energy usage. The system’s superb reliability is ensured through synchronised switchover, parallel redundant, and standby redundant systems. By providing reliable and efficient power backup, the company’s system safeguards critical applications and data and contributes to reducing carbon emissions, aligning with energy management and sustainability goals. The Falcon range of online UPS systems is designed to meet the demands of the smart utility sector. This innovative power backup system represents a cutting-edge solution for ensuring uninterrupted power supply while prioritising energy efficiency and reliability. 

The Falcon X7 range UPS incorporates advanced features. It was developed based on the design philosophy of reliability, efficiency, versatility, sustainability and flexibility. It is valuable for organisations seeking to optimise their energy management and ensure business continuity. One of its key features is the NPC 3-Level inverter technology, which delivers exceptional efficiency, with rates of up to 99 percent. This high efficiency reduces operational costs and aligns with the company’s commitment to sustainability and cost-effectiveness. With digital transformation specific to the smart utility sector, Fuji Electric has a special product, “Falcon 1000i”, online UPS. This product is designed for the utility sector and is based on online double conversion technology with an SCR/IGBT-based rectifier. The Falcon 1000i UPS is built to work reliably in harsh environmental conditions with IP31 and ingress protection IP41. This industrial UPS has an output transformer as standard and will add a standard double-wound transformer to the input without shielding in compliance with smart utility sector needs. These advanced UPS are flag bearers of Fuji Electric’s 100-year legacy and have actively supported the customer’s digital transformation initiatives across industries.

Advantages of energy efficiency solutions

In addition to the Minivet series, Fuji Electric offers a comprehensive range of energy-efficient solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of businesses. The single-phase and three-phase UPS systems are designed to provide reliable power backup, minimise downtime, and optimise energy utilisation. Solar inverters harness renewable energy sources, contributing to cost savings and environmental sustainability. Understanding the importance of power quality, power conditioning solutions are designed to stabilise voltage and eliminate power-related issues, ensuring smooth equipment operation while minimising energy wastage. 

Fuji Electric India delivers practical and effective energy efficiency solutions that align with the unique requirements of businesses across various industries. Company’s commitment to reliability, efficiency, and sustainability remains unwavering, making it a trusted partner in the nation’s journey towards improved energy management.
