Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a device containing a battery that helps computers run for a short while when the primary power source is lost; it also ensures protection in cases of power surges. Earlier UPS designs used a transformer, which helped boost low incoming voltages, and many data centers rely on these systems for power availability. However, with growing awareness regarding the importance of energy efficiency and the need to avoid additional system losses has resulted in the transition to transformerless UPS systems.
Presently, insulated-gate-bipolar-transistor (IGBT) technology is used, which eliminates the need for legacy systems and works on the basis of pulse-width modulation. Over the past few years, transformerless design was used in smaller uninterruptible power supplies of around 30 kVA, but has now become commercialized in larger, multi-module systems as well. A large number of benefits associated with this technology are expected to drive the market. Usage of IGBT systems result in a more compact form factor, and elimination of the transformer has reduced the overall device weight and size. They also help achieve high energy efficiency and performance, and accommodation of a wide range of input voltages.
Enhanced design includes the incorporation of integrated temperature sensors, which allows for direct thermal IGBT control. Furthermore, reduction in the number of components used causes a significant reduction in the number of cables used, thus avoiding faults and greatly increasing reliability. Lowered capex (capital expenditure) and installation costs are also expected to favorably impact product demand globally in the coming years. Additionally, reduced training costs, as well as higher savings due to reduced spare parts are expected to drive the industry. However, upgrading from legacy systems incurs high servicing and maintenance costs, which is expected to pose a restraint to market growth over the forecast period.
Transformerless UPS systems have become the preferred choice over their traditional counterparts, and can be used in various settings. These include commercial buildings, telecommunications applications, industrial environments as well as small IT environments such as for data storage equipment. In terms of geography, Asia Pacific is expected to grow faster than the global average in the coming years due to increasing demand for power reliability and availability. Major industry participants include Eaton Corp., Newave Energy Holding SA, Schneider Electric Co., GE Co., Emerson Electric Co., and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. among others.
