CleanSource DC is as a battery-free energy storage alternative for your mission critical UPS. CleanSource DC supplements or replaces battery strings in your UPS system, improving reliability while driving down lifecycle cost.
AN UNMATCHED COMBINATION
|Reliability||Total Cost of Ownership||Power Density|
|Predictable, visible, monitored power||20 year life and unlimited cycling = no battery replacements||Less than 25% of the space requirements of battery systems|
CleanSource DC uses Active Power’s elegant CleanSource flywheel technology to store energy for use with your Uninterruptible Power Supply.Flywheel systems store kinetic energy - energy produced by motion - by constantly spinning a compact rotor in a low-friction environment. When short-term backup power is required because utility power fluctuates or is lost, the inertia allows the rotor to continue spinning and the resulting kinetic energy is converted to electricity.
250 kW DC power (single cabinet, single flywheel)
500 kW DC power (single cabinet, dual flywheel)
Up to 4 systems / 2,000 kW for redundancy or capacity
When used as sole energy storage for a double conversion UPS, CleanSource DC provides bridging power to continuous backup power source
Lower cost of ownership than batteries over product life
Superior reliability / predictable power
Infinite cycles without degradation of performance or energy delivered
When used in combination with batteries, CleanSource DC improves total cost of ownership and reliability of the system.
Flywheel serves as primary energy storage for frequent and short power disturbances
Battery serves as secondary energy storage for extended power outages
Two sources improve system reliability
Flywheel improves lifespan of batteries – addresses 98% of power issues lasting less than 10 seconds
