UNINTERRUPTED POWER QUALITY
Merus Power UPQ Superior and cost-effective solution for short-term interruptions and other power quality problems.
RELIABILITY CHALLENGES IN MISSION CRITICAL PROCESSES
Maintaining high electric power reliability and availability are one of the key considerations in designing modern mission critical business operations.
Low reliability and availability lead to signifiant business risks and compromised profiability.
Modern mission critical business processes demand continuous high quality uninterrupted power supply.
Even momentary interruptions could damage the sensitive electrical equipment andoften result in stoppages of the mission critical business processes.
Such interruptions could be inflcted either from supply or load side challenges and lead to lower availability and reliability.
Customer Challanges :
- Interruptions due to power outages and voltage sags
- Production and data losses
- Underutilized electrical resources
- Damage to sensitive electrical equipment
- Rapid aging of electrical resources

POWER PROTECTION MODE
In the event of power outages or voltage sags, the Merus Power UPQ activates power protection mode. During this mode, real active power and real reactive power are provided to the loads, ensuring complete immunity to the mission critical processes from utility power interruptions, voltage sags and swells. This guarantees maximum system availability and reliability for mission critical processes.
POWER QUALITY MODE
After the fault is cleared, Merus Power UPQ returns to its normal power quality operation mode, where it actively fiters harmonic distortions up to 50th order, mitigates flcker, balances loads, improves power factor and controls voltage.
LOWEST OPERATIONAL COST, WITH SHUNT CONNECTION
Compared to conventional power protection technologies, Merus Power UPQ solution gives you lowest operational costs.
Lifetime operational costs are defied by Merus Power UPQ power quality operation mode, as utility power connection is mostly available.
In this operation mode the Merus Power UPQ is shunt connected with the load giving higher effiiency. Therefore it offers lowest operational costs compared to any other power protection device like conventional UPS or rotary UPS which are connected in series.
UPQ SUPERIOR EFFICIENCY CAN BE SEEN DIRECTLY IN YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL
In an example case, where the need is 1500kW maximum power protection with 80% average loading and the cost of electricity is 0,10€ per kWh, UPQ saves 37 480€ per annum.
LONGEST LIFETIME WITH ULTRA CAPACITORS (UC)
Ultra capacitors (UC) are utilized as a default energy storage in Merus Power UPQ dueo their superior power density, cycle and life time.
As a default, Merus Power UPQ ultra capacitor energy storage offers full charge cycle life
of 10 years with more than 500 000 operations at an average ambient temperature of +25C.
When the ultra capacitor energy storage reaches the end of designed life cycle, specifid nominal energy may no longer be reached at full, but the device does not become obsolete.
The ultra capacitor cycle life and life time are defied by depth of discharges, voltage stress and ambient temperature.
By request it is possible to design an energy storage solution which can meet a cycle life of more than 1 000 000 operations at average ambient temperature of +25C within 15 years.
SMOOTH BUSINESS PROCESSES, WITH REAL TIME RESPONSE
Merus Power UPQ is built on modern power electronics technology, ensuring extremely fast and effective response to power outages, voltage sags and a number of other power quality disturbances.
Such dynamic real time response ensures uninterrupted power for business processes. During power quality mode, it fiters harmonic distortions and improves power factor in less than 1 millisecond.
In an event of a power outage or a voltage sag, switching to power protection mode takes place in less than 1.8ms.
Such dynamic performance ensures maximum up-time and system availability for crucial business processes.
COMPREHENSIVE PROTECTION WITH A SINGLE ROBUST SOLUTION
Conventional solutions in the market offer incomplete protection, which is often limited to either supply side or load side challenges. Merus Power UPQ is a comprehensive and effective protection package from both, supply as well as load side disturbances.
It brings complete benefis of several solutions e.g. UPS, Power Conditioning and Active Harmonic Filtering Solutions in a single robust solution.
SUPPORTING DOL MOTOR START
AND GUARANTEED PROTECTIVE FUSE OPERATION
Unlike conventional power protection systems, Merus Power UPQ does not limit short circuit current. Therefore Ik’ (S) fed by utility, equals to Ik’ (L) at load bus. This unique feature allows direct on-line (DOL) motor starting, improved by UPQ real time reactive power compensation. Since short circuit current is not limited, the protective fuse operation is guaranteed in the same way as in in conventional power distribution system.
TOTAL CUSTOMIZATION WITH MODULAR DESIGN
Full Scalability is achieved through modularity in both power electronic units as well as in selection of energy storage capacity and media.
An application to well demonstrate UPQ’s modularity is a common bus power system which is fed by parallel running redundant transformers.
Such system can be protected by UPQ system equipped with dual static switch system.
Freedom of customization from choosing different UPQ power module, static switch and energy storage capacity, gives engineering consultants and plant owner opportunity to optimize the investment cost according to the desired protection time, cost of lost production and environmental considerations.
FOR EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME
Merus Power UPQ comes by default with Ultra Capacitors (UC) which provides excellent protection for short-term interruptions. However, Merus Power UPQ solution can be tailored for applications requiring power protection for extended periods of time.
UPQ Solution can be designed for applications requiring power back up of minutes with the use of Lithium-Titanate (LTO) Batteries as energy storage media.
However, if the power protection is needed for even longer period of time, Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries will be an ideal energy storage media.
MODERN MONITORING AND REPORTING FUNCTIONALITY
Sophisticated touch screen panel provides advanced monitoring options, both on-site and off-site. Remote mo
nitoring is possible through Ethernet, which keeps you updated through the reporting functionality.
Modern monitoring and reporting functions feed the user with relevant information and has the option to be integrated to other SCADA systems via smart communication features.
Merus Power UPQ FLEXIBLE CONNECTIVITY OPTION
Entire facility protection with flxibility of connecting Merus Power UPQ at any voltage level: Merus UPQ provides superior connectivity options, unlike any other solution. It could be easily connected at any voltage level up to 38.5kV.
Such flxibility allows designing of an economically viable power protection solution, utilizing the most cost optimized energy storage media for entire production processes. This excellent feature keeps production downtime to the minimum in your facility.
WITH AN UNINTERRUPTED POWER
SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY :
Semiconductor- and other process critical industries are very sensitive to voltage sags, power outages or other power quality issues. In semiconductor industries, manufacturing afiished product can take up to 3 months which is why interruptions can ruin a batch and cause serious damage to the production process.
