Designing a lithium-based battery backup system for a Telecom or Data Center application presents new and different challenges compared to a traditional VRLA design. Balancing the flow of energy in and out of the battery bank is a critical design parameter. Designers must ensure that power is available under all conditions and optimize the performance of the batteries at the same time. There are 3 main issues designers encounter when designing lithium battery-based systems.
This article presents 3 common issues designers face when making the shift to lithium, and how Green Cubes has developed a patent pending Energy Balance Technology (EBT) to solve these challenges, reduce costs and optimize the use of lithium-ion batteries in UPS applications.
