DeRUPS™ Configuration

Unique to Piller is the DeRUPS™ solution, an alternative to the more conventional DRUPS offering where a diesel generator is combined with UPS either upstream or downstream and integrated in the control system of a UNIBLOCK™ UBT+ Rotary UPS to build a powerful and multifunctional system.

This integration allows the use of external diesel generators in more complex designs, like IP-Systems, whilst providing the many advantages arising from the physical separation of the UPS and generator particularly with respect to greater freedom in choice of engine size or manufacturer and to improve resilience during maintenance.

As a totally integrated system, the DeRUPS™ configuration optimises efficiency, maintainability and flexibility while using the benefits of flywheel energy storage to guarantee seamless operation between the generator and UPS unit.

DeRUPS features
Number of genset does not need to be equal to number of UPS
Ratings of UPS and gensets can be optimized independently
Gensets can be used to supply short-break loads and no-break loads
Short-break loads are isolated from the no-break loads
Load can be supplied by gensets while the UPS is in maintenance
Simple mechanical design - no freewheel clutch - Easy maintenance
Free choice of genset and engine suppliers, existing gensets can be used
Flexible IP-Bus configurations, or MV or LV solutions are possible
Easy and independent extension (UPS and gensets)
If a Sync box is available, parallel groups of engines make the start as fast as single modules
