General information and technical advice on how to select, install and maintain standby power generators for use with UPS systems in server rooms and datacentre environments.

How to Use Backup Power and Generators to Protect Datacentre Systems

Backup Power Generators

Power cuts are inevitable and within a server room or datacentre environment the results can result in system downtime, erroneous errors and hardware failures. The electricity utilities continue to invest in their critical infrastructure to ensure that power outages are quickly identified and corrected. Substations are automated to rapid response power redistribution and engineering teams […]

The Key Differences Between UPS, Generators and Energy Storage

Datacentre Backup Power Generators

There is often confusion as to the roles played by UPS systems and generators in critical power protection plans. This is more so now that lithium-ion batteries are also turning uninterruptible power supplies into what are now termed as energy storage systems. What’s the key differences between a UPS and generator? Uninterruptible Power Backup Uninterruptible […]

Designing Standby Power Generators For Datacentres

Datacentre Standby Power Generators

Generators provide mechanically generated electrical power by converting a fuel source including diesel, liquid petroleum gas or bio-fuels in electrical energy. The generators we most commonly use within a UPS installation are used on what is known as a standby power mode. The alternative to this is prime power mode where the generator is run […]
