GE Flywheel UPS System 50-1000 kVA

ge-sg-series-flywheel-upsThe GE Flywheel UPS System 50-1000 kVA, using Vycon technology, stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is designed for high power, short time discharge applications. The technology includes a high speed motor generator and active magnetic bearings that are used to levitate and sustain the rotor during operation. The flywheel assembly includes a superior control system that provides information on system performance. This innovative technology allows the flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles, providing much superior operation over conventional battery use. Numerous applications for critical power UPS Systems require short duration backup time, as many mission-critical loads now have other design means to provide long duration power outage support through various hardware and spatial software redundancies.
