According to leading power demand response management experts from Enel X, the new Dynamic Grid Support function combined with Vertiv UPS and lithium-ion battery technologies provides additional revenue of up to one million euros per year with 10 MW of flexible customer load in Ireland today.
Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and business continuity solutions, has introduced an innovative feature Dynamic Grid Support for Vertiv Liebert EXL S1 uninterruptible power supply system (UPS). In combination with Vertiv HPL with a solution of lithium-ion batteries in the battery cabinet, this complete system is the first integrated complete solution for customers on the market that combines the features of network support, UPS and lithium-ion battery.
Vertiv Liebert EXL S1 s Dynamic Grid Support, now available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), allows high-energy industries to use UPS systems proactively. While the occasional implementation of renewable energy is trying to change everyday life and break the conventional rules of electricity generation, new energy storage services are needed to support the achievement of sustainability goals, as well as to generate additional revenue and reduce energy costs. Using a UPS with Dynamic Grid Support and a lithium-ion battery in times of network instability can ultimately contribute to decarbonization and the transition to green energy, ensuring continuous electricity distribution by addressing the imbalance associated with renewable energy production, in turn supporting global sustainability.
Vertiv HPL cabinet for lithium-ion batteries which is already in use in North America, will soon be available in the EMEA region as well. The cabinet is compatible with most current and older Vertivo three-phase UPS systems. Although Vertiv as a company early adopted lithium-ion batteries for use in data centers, Vertiv HPL is the first such solution with its own Vertiv battery management system whose key features are specifically designed for modern data centers, such as an improved user interface, integrated controls, such as and service options.
“As the trend of digitalization is on the rise around the world, we must provide our customers with solutions that not only help adopt alternative network technologies, but also provide customers with the potential to generate more revenue through existing solutions. This is not only important for business, but it is also crucial for the well-being of our planet because sustainable digital consumption solutions are a big part of global efforts to combat climate change and build sustainable infrastructure suitable for the future. And we want to be part of the solution, “he said Giovanni Zanei, Director of Global Bid Management for Vertiv’s AC Power Business.
“Today, the application of the Vertiv Liebert EXL S1 system would Dynamic Grid Support function and technology of lithium-ion batteries enabled participation in the Irish DS3 program to provide a safe and sustainable electricity system, as well as the opportunity to generate additional revenue of approximately one million euros per year for 10 MW of flexible load electricity. The need for such network services is great and growing in Ireland, as the state and companies seek solutions to reduce harmful emissions, “he said. John Byrne, Head of Business in the United Kingdom and Ireland at Enel X.
Data centers and other critical infrastructure, such as telecommunications networks, 4.0 factories and airports, play a key role in today’s changing energy landscape that presents new ways to sustainability, revenue generation and lower energy costs. According to a recent IEA report, technology companies could be leaders in creating a balance of electricity use. The so-called “Big Tech“Companies could play an even greater role in decarbonising the network by adopting flexible modes of operation, such as shifting workload to battery storage or other energy stocks to match renewable generation targets or acting as a demand-response resource.
Vertiv Liebert EXL S1 sistem s Dynamic Grid Support function provides static and dynamic frequency control by controlling the input power and charging and discharging the batteries based on the frequency activation thresholds. It also supports demand management services when commands to modulate UPS operations are associated with demand control flexibility.
Dedicated controls of such systems maintain the required battery energy at a level that will support the critical load in the event of a power outage. When used Dynamic Grid Support, The UPS provides a quick response in response to network control system commands. The total response time between frequency variation detection, which is the time required for the external controller to generate the command when the UPS reaches the set power value, is within approximately 500 milliseconds. This allows companies to protect their critical applications with stable power, and also helps network operators to stabilize system frequency changes that occur as a result of increased use of renewable energy sources.
