HPPL: The energy storage for tomorrow's data centres
In an increasingly digitalized world, safeguarding data centers is an essential application of energy storage systems and was therefore the focus of the development of HOPPECKE's high-performance HPPL pure lead batteries.
Installed in UPS systems, they are used to eliminate network disturbances as classified in the European standard EN62040-3. These include dips, peaks, voltage fluctuations and transients (short-term, stochastic disturbances).
In the event of a temporary complete failure of the mains power supply, batteries use their stored energy to ensure the continuous operation of the IT load and critical infrastructure components. A backup time of ten to 15 minutes is usually selected. In the event of a prolonged interruption of the mains power, enough backup time should be available so that the supply of the load can be transferred to emergency power supply systems such as diesel generators. Nowadays, however, generators can be switched on and brought up to speed much faster and thus loads can be transferred to the emergency power supply system much faster than was previously the case.
What does this mean in concrete terms for the application from the point of view of energy storage, what special features does HPPL have in comparison with classic AGM technologies and how can you benefit from the use of this storage technology?
In the following whitepaper we give answers to these questions.
