Reliable power is essential to keep critical functions operational.
Energy storage is of highest importance to UPS availability:
• the VSS
+
DC dynamic storage solution removes restrictions linked to traditional battery use,
• the VSS
+
DC system provides a high level of availability for DELPHYS MP or DELPHYS MX Uninterruptible Power Supply units,
• the solution inverter DELPHYS with dynamic storage of energy VSS
+
DC was carried out by the partnership between SOCOMEC SICON UPS
and PENTADYNE.

The various configurations
Various solutions or combinations far meeting your requirements for electrical energy availability
are possible depending on your operating constraints and technical environment.
Operation during power outages
The VSS
+
DC system is connected to the DC
bus ; it supplies the inverter when the low-
voltage system exceeds the voltage tolerances.
Thereby providing 99.5% protection against
system failures.
Working with a generator unit
The VSS
+
DC supplies the inverter long enough
for an emergency generator unit to take over
the power supply.
Working with a battery
When connected in parallel with a battery, the
VSS
+
DC cuts in during short power failures ;
battery backup is maintained and its capacity
is used for major cuts. Battery life is extended
by infrequent demands (life cycle).
Working in parallel
Several VSS
+
DC units connected in parallel
increase power and available backup time.

Operating principle
• VSS
+
DC is a dynamic energy storage system
• Using a very high-speed, rotating flywheel
• Combined flywheel, shaft and generator
• The rotating assembly is held up by electro
magnetic, with no contact with other parts
• A maintenance-free internal system vacuum
annihilates friction
• The flywheel-driven generator supplies
energy to the UPS during a power failure,
thus providing continuous power to the load
• When mains power is restored, the flywheel
takes as well as 20 seconds to return to Full
speed.

DC advantages
Dynamic energy storage technology with yet
more technical advantages:
• simplified maintenance:
- no wearing parts,
- no vacuum pump requiring maintenance
or replacement,
• high efficiency,
• silent operation,
• simple operation.
The VSS
+
DC works without the constraints of batteries
• VSS
+
DC systems provide end-users with
excellent results for very low operating costs.
• The VSS
+
systems may be used in operating
conditions where battery use is impossible;
the system is unaffected by ambient
temperatures.

Operating costs
Energy consumption very high efficiency energy consumption to maintain Float charge
Maintenance reduced high
Ventilation - Air conditioning not applicable maintaining ambient temperature increases operating costs
Technical floor space reduced considerable, with ground loading constraints
Service life high (> 20 years) frequent replacements
Autonomy availability
Reliability high need for constant monitoring
Knowledge of availability continuous actual backup time difficult to ascertain
Life cycle (number of discharges) no impact on service life reduces service life
Ambient temperature no impact reduced temperature range
Recharge time very low reduced (100% in about 20 seconds) important (80% in about 8 hours)
