Hybrid energy storage system

Hybrid VDC XEBVYCON’s Hybrid VDC XEB is an energy storage system that combines flywheel technology with batteries to provide 300 kW of power and extended runtime. The flywheel handles power anomalies to reduce the frequency of battery cycles. Throughout its 20-year life, the flywheel charges and discharges at high rates without degradation or bearing damage, and up to five of these systems can be paralleled for higher power. The system includes an aerospace-grade steel flywheel hub, a high-speed permanent magnet motor generator, a contact-free magnetic levitation system, a touchscreen display, and a monitoring system that integrates with various three-phase UPS makes and models.


Generator

MTU Onsite Energy generatorThe generator manufactured by MTU Onsite Energy features the 8 V MTU Series 1600 engine for the 400 kW power node, with a displacement of approximately 1.75 liters per cylinder, high-pressure common rail fuel injection, and a compact exhaust silencer. This unit is standby-rated to a 24-hour average load factor of 85% with a varying load. Outlet boxes accommodate a digital voltage regulator and modular accessories, and the main circuit breaker can be mounted on either side of the control box. The generator can accept full load in one step and is available in output voltages of 208, 240, 380, 440, 480, or 600 V.


Backup power device

9E uninterruptible power systemThe Eaton 9E uninterruptible power system is a backup power device that delivers facility and industrial environment power management. This system’s tower configuration delivers power protection for expanding loads in space-constrained facilities while operating at up to 98% efficiency. The 9E offers internal batteries up to 60 kVA, saving floor space when compared to external battery cabinets. The system’s small physical footprint allows for space utilization for revenue-producing equipment and materials. The 9E integrates with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Software Suite, which allows for management and monitoring of multiple power devices across a network from any Internet-enabled computer.


Diesel emission monitor system

AT-IV Active DPF/SCR systemThe Rypos AT-IV Active DPF/SCR system monitors the condition of emission controls for a diesel engine and uses predictive analysis to proactively regenerate the DPF and to precondition the exhaust under any load condition or exhaust temperature. There are no idle time limitations or cold start restrictions. The filter is packaged in an integrated low-profile housing, and the filter media can also act as a load bank. This system allows users to determine a compliance schedule, and it can be populated with just one reduction technology while allowing for installation when either or both of the remaining requirements are needed.
