Answers:
Highest possible MTBF, Lowest MTTR, Highest possible efficiency at 75% load Individual battery equalization Modular parallel with no single point of failure Input power correction Protection against load back feed
~Selim A, Engineering Consultant, Istanbul, Türkiye
High Efficiency UPS systems with less foot print and low operating cost. ITHD must be less than 3% with unity PF at input of UPS. Most importantly, as the name suggests, it should be uninterruptible, i.e reliable.
~Sudhir KULKARNI, Area Manger Marketing/Business development, Mumbai, India
That the UPS would accommodate multiple types of relays whether Schweitzer, Multi-Lens, Electro-Switch, GE or Basler; every client has their own favorite.
~Roger W, Estimating Procurement Manager, Overland Park, KS
Above 1 MW, true modular solution with capacity for online repair utilizing a minimum footprint. Dual conversion with almost unity power factor.
~Facilities Manager, Las Vegas, NV
Utilizing the fact that the unit is in phase with the supply, I would allow the ability to feed excess power back to the grid.
~Spike, Technical Support, Matamata, New Zealand
We need information on three phase power inverters and their COST from 5kW to 1MW as well as technical data on these units.
~Jerry G Sales and installation, Marketing/Sales, Muskogee, Muskogee
UPS must be able to deal with a higher non-linear load as inductive and capacitive load than today.
~Gunnar H, Technical Support, Oslo, Norway
More user configurable options, for example: User defineable safety settings.
~Didier S, Design Engineer, Veldhoven, The Netherlands
Higher efficiency over a wider power range.
~Bruce T, Engineering Consultant, Perth, Australia
Better integration into the IT ecosystem.
~Engineer, Sault Ste. Marie, Canada
Better scalability of modular units.
~Jere R, Network Manager, Jeffersonville, KY
Input pf, efficiency
~S DATTA, Marketing/Sales, New Delhi, India
