Huawei officially released the new-generation of large and medium-sized UPS5000-H series products.
The modular UPS allows high capacity configuration of 1MW power per cabinet with installation of 10 modular UPS 100KW@3U modules in one cabinet. The UPS product series are hot swappable ensuring maintenance activities extremely easy for the O&M personal. It takes just 5 minute for replacing the UPS modules.
Key Features “High density”, “High efficiency”, and “Intelligent”
The UPS technology has changed dramatically in the past decade. Miss. Jia Shanshan, Deputy General Manager of CCID’s Electronic Information Industry Research Center, had mentioned that in the last decade, UPS technologies have driven the rapid change of market landscape with high frequency and modularization. In the coming decade, the key is to effectively meet new infrastructure development trend with Modular, High density and high efficiency and intelligent modules that are essential for future infrastructure development
With the new trend, the power supply and distribution system of the data center keeps on continuous innovation and development to fulfill the demands of the new era. Li Yusheng, deputy director of the Information Energy Institute of china mobile design department, pointed out that the power supply facilities of the data center are facing challenges such as low operating efficiency, large footprint, and heavy maintenance workload. Therefore, the transformation is essential, to drive the development of power supply facilities towards high density, efficiency, and intelligence through technology evolution, and new product innovations.
1 MW per cabinet, 100 kW@3U
Huawei is continuously investing in the R&D and product innovation, ensuring the excellent capabilities in the UPS performance and indicators. According to Li Qingwei, General Manager, power supply domain of Huawei Digital Power Product Line, Huawei Ultra-High-Density Modular UPS product series have achieved remarkable breakthrough in the semiconductor, modules and system level.
Huawei 100 kW UPS power modules have innovative designs in terms of size, heat generation and heat dissipation. In terms of size, Huawei’s innovative patent technologies such as topology pooling patents, which reduce the size by 40%. Patented magnetic integration, reducing inductor volume by 20%. In terms of heat generation, three-level and interleaved parallel topology, advanced device optimization and digital control technology are used to reduce the losses. In terms of heat dissipation, the optimal design and clean layout of the system and components achieves ultra-high heat dissipation capability. The system can work at 40°C without derating for a long time, improving the heat dissipation capability by 50%.
The increase in power module density means that the entire system density is improved. 100 kW@3U power modules provide high power density, achieving one MW for one cabinet and a system efficiency of 97.5%. This will lead to the era of ultra-high density and efficiency in data center power supply.
Unveiling the Breakthrough Technologies
It took two and a half years from development to official release of the UPS5000-H series. During the technical panel discussion, the R&D and test team of the UPS5000-H series discussed the challenges and key capabilities behind the innovation. Mr. Zhang Chuntao, chief technical engineer of the 100kW module, said that the biggest challenge is how to balance various complex factors, including volume, efficiency, cost, Design for X(DFX), and component serviceability. In addition, considering how to meet the different voltage standard and installation scenario requirements of different countries and regions, the new series of products need to possess good flexibility and adaptability in system and architecture design.
With the help with Huawei 2012 Laboratories, and technical experts, we were able to overcome the difficulties in achieving technical breakthroughs. In addition, Huawei enhanced reliability test strategies and uses five outdoor fields in coastal, humid, low-temperature, dry, and low-pressure environments in China to cover all application scenarios.
With its strong technical capabilities, Huawei UPS products have won unanimous recognition of industry and customers. According to China UPS Market Research Report 2019-2020 released by CCID Consultant, Huawei UPS products ranked No. 1 in the overall market share in China in 2019.
The launch of full series of ultra-high-density modular UPS is not only an achievement, but also a new starting point which will revolutionize the modular power. Looking ahead, with our continuous R&D innovation and advance technical capabilities Huawei will continue to build simple, green, smart, and reliable next-generation data center power supply and solutions.
