Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) are used in data centers or telecom central offices to provide backup power for servers and switching equipment in the event of failure. Historically, these UPS's have relied on Lead Acid as the predominant battery type, but Lithium-ion batteries are gaining market share over the incumbent Lead Acid battery technology.

This session presents some of the fundamental considerations and trade-offs when assessing a Lithium-ion UPS system to complement your data center equipment. Several critical considerations include the available battery chemistry options - Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) versus Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC) versus traditional Lead Acid (LA). For each of these options, ROI comparisons are provided based on post-installation analysis of data center operations, and these comparisons highlight expected benefits before installation and realized returns after installation.


After this session audience members will
-Know the difference between multiple Lithium Ion chemistries for UPS applications
-Know how to define, calculate, and size a UPS solution for their application
-Calculate the requirements for their power system, and apply them to Lithium and Lead Acid solutions on the market
-Understand the factors influencing ROI, and Total Cost of Ownership of any Data Center power system
