Costly Downtime!

IndustryAvg cost of downtime ($/hr)Brokerage $6,450,000Credit Card $2,600,000Pay Per View $150,000Home Shopping $113,000Catalog Sales $90,000Airline Reservations $90,000Tele-Ticket $69,000Package Shipping $28,000ATM Fees $14,400Source: 7x24 Exchange


Insurance considerations

“Insurance” Considerations

  • Cost of Outage vs. Cost of “Insurance”

  • Consider 5 year to 10 year life cycle cost

  • Do Not Forget Maintenance Costs

  • Which Energy Storage Technology is Best Suited for the Application?


Battery technologies

Battery Technologies:

  • 10 Year “VRLA”

    • A.k.a. “Maintenance Free”, “Gel Cell”, AGM

    • 3 to 7 year life on most UPS’s

    • Fails in “open” or “shorted” position

    • Low cost, most prevalent


Current trends in the power quality market

Conventional Grid Design

Improved High Rate Grid Design


Battery technologies1

20 Year Sealed VRLA

12 to 18 year life (depending on number of outages; environment)

Fails in “shorted” position

About 2x initial cost of 10Year VRLA

Battery Technologies:


Battery technologies2

Battery Technologies:

  • 20 Year “Wet” Cell

    • 17 to 20 year life

    • Very reliable

    • High maintenance, large footprint, eye wash station…

    • About 3x initial cost of 10 Year VRLA


Battery maintenance

Battery Maintenance

  • IEEE Std 1188- Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) Batteries for Stationary Applications

    • Monthly: float voltage, charger output, temperature measurements

    • Quarterly: cell/unit ohmic values; temperature value of each negative terminal; representative sample of intercell connection resistances

    • Annually: cell-to-cell and terminal connection detail resistance of the entire battery; AC ripple current and/or voltage imposed on the battery


Battery monitoring

Battery Monitoring

  • More Prevalent

  • “Real Time” Status of Batteries

  • Monitors: Impedance, Temperature, and Float Charging Voltage

  • Cost = $6k to $10k per system (installed)


Other energy storage technologies

Other Energy Storage Technologies

  • Flywheels

  • Ultracapacitors

  • Lithium Ion Batteries

  • Thermal and Compressed Air Storage

  • Most large UPS systems are currently over 93% efficient

  • In 3 - 5 Years, Most Large UPS Systems Will Be > 97% Efficient


Other trends

Other Trends…

  • Higher Output Power Factor on UPS

    • Match trends in the Computer Power Supply Market

  • Internal Redundancy/Scalability for High 9’s Applications

    • Avoid Single Points of Failure

    • Maintain High Efficiency


What does all this mean

What does all this mean?

It’s dependant on your susceptibility.

Given the quality of supply do I have to worry about problems with my equipment or systems?


What you should be asking

What you should be asking…

What is my susceptibility to power problems?

What is my economic exposure to such problems?

$$$$$$


The big picture

The big picture…

It’s the complete electrical environment, not just the quality of supply.


What you should be asking1

What you should be asking…

Does my power system have the capacity for my present needs?

How about future growth?

Be proactive!
