Current Direct Isolated-Parallel Redundancy: A New and Better Approach to Large Critical Power Systems

This White Paper describes a new approach to large critical power system configuration, which offers significant advantages over current practice for a broad range of commercial applications.

Large technology facilities such as enterprise, wholesale and co-location data centers, and other special uses such as processing centers and laboratories are some of the most energy intensive sites in the world. These facilities hold great responsibility to meet the demands put on them by the business mission they support. When these systems are designed, they typically are provided with emergency back-up engine generators (EGs), and/or uninterruptible power supply systems (UPSs), and are configured with multiple units for redundancy in order to minimize the risk of downtime.
