Data Center Back-up Batteries: Options and Lifecycle Costs
* Define Flooded (also known as vented or wet cell) batteries, Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA), and Modular Battery Cartridge (MBC) systems * Explain the differences between Flooded, Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA), and Modular Battery Cartridge (MBC) systems * Compare the installation, life expectancy, and failure modes of each battery type * Differentiate the costs associated with the purchase, maintenance and infrastructure adaptability of UPS Battery Technology
This course will focus on the lead-acid battery. In the data center, the lead-acid battery is the predominant choice for Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) energy storage. Over 10 million installed UPSs utilize either Flooded, Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA), and Modular Battery Cartridge (MBC) systems. This course will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these three battery technologies. In addition, the lifecycle cost of these different UPS battery technologies will also be analyzed.
