Off-grid diesel generator powered sites, running continuously, cause glazing and carbon build-up in the generator engine and typically operate at an inefficient load range resulting in high fuel consumption. The UNIPOWER hybrid solution, by adding deep cyclic batteries, significantly reduces generator runtime and fuel consumption operational expenditure due to less frequent maintenance intervals. Cyclic batteries also provides a degree of operational redundancy in the event of generator failure as the batteries are only ever discharged to a limited capacity on any given cycle, thus eradicating the need for a second generator.
Through the use of temperature hardened rectifiers and resilient batteries, the traditional requirement for air-conditioners can be traded in for a passive Heat Exchanger (HEX) or direct fan filter (DFC) cooling solution, both of which use significantly less energy. This energy saving equates to a lower total cost of ownership.
Battery and generator management is handled through the UNIPOWER system controller, which, through the setting of battery type and capacity, ensures optimal site management and maximum lifetime of the battery and generator.
The flexibility to expand using solar converters allows prioritized renewable energy to be integrated into the modular system design.
Deployable using a wide range of existing indoor and outdoor power systems, the UNIPOWER Hybrid Solution is the latest in a series of energy optimization innovations that UNIPOWER is driving to help reduce total cost of ownership, while at the same time improving the environmental performance of mobile network growth worldwide.
