Topic:  “An Introduction to UPS with Lithium Ion Battery Technology”- providing power to critical loads requires a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to work in tandem with an energy storage solution. Given the advancements in energy storage technologies, design professionals have several viable options to consider.  Lithium Ion Batteries (LIB) are quickly gaining attention as a viable replacement for the standard valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries and is most common used as a short term power source with UPS systems.  This presentation will introduce  the different types of LIB technologies for UPS data center applications, the different chemistries, testing / recommendations and the benefits as well as the disadvantages.
