Active Power, Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, and services flywheel-based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) products that use kinetic energy to provide short-term power as a cleaner alternative to electro-chemical battery-based energy storage. The company also designs, manufactures, sells, and services modular infrastructure solutions (MIS) that integrate critical power components into a pre-packaged, purpose built enclosure that might include the company’s UPS products as a component. Its products and solutions are based on its patented flywheel and power electronics technology and are designed to ensure continuity for data centers and other mission critical operations in the event of power disturbances. The company’s UPS products and solutions are designed to deliver continuous conditioned power during short-term power disturbances and outages, such as voltage sags and surges, and to provide ride-through power in the event of a utility failure, supporting operations until utility power is restored or a longer term alternative power source, such as a diesel generator, is started. The company has sold its flywheel-based UPS products, which the company calls CleanSource UPS. As of December 31, 2014, the company shipped approximately 4,000 flywheels in UPS systems, delivering approximately 1 gigawatt of power to customers in approximately 50 countries worldwide, and providing approximately 200 million runtime hours of operation. In addition to selling stand-alone UPS products, the company’s MIS products integrate critical power components into a pre-packaged, purpose built enclosure that could be deployed by customers indoors or outdoors. The company’s MIS products could include its UPS products with other related equipment, including switchboards and automatic transfer switch; monitoring and control systems; fire detection; lighting; security; and air conditioning. When integrated with its UPS, this product, known as CleanSource PowerHouse, is sold as a power solution. Products: UPS and MIS UPS The company’s UPS products serve two primary functions. First, during normal operations they are continuously conditioning (cleaning) the incoming power from the utility and delivering ‘conditioned’ power to the client’s mission critical load. In this mode, the UPS regulates incoming utility power fluctuations in voltage and frequency. Second, if there is any interruption in the utility source, the UPS would provide temporary, or bridging power, until either the utility power is restored or an alternative generating source, such as a diesel generator, begins to provide power. CleanSource 300/250 Series UPS The company offers flywheel UPS product, integrating UPS power electronics with flywheel energy storage technology. The flywheel stores kinetic energy – energy produced by motion – by constantly spinning a compact rotor in a low friction environment. The company markets its flywheel-based UPS systems under the brand name CleanSource UPS rated at 300 kVA (kilo-Volt-Amps or power level) and 250 kVA for 480V and 400V applications, respectively. CleanSource UPS is a battery-free UPS system that integrates proprietary UPS electronics and the company’s flywheel energy storage system into one compact cabinet lineup. The company offers CleanSource UPS products in power configurations ranging approximately 1.5 million volt ampere with the ability to parallel these products to provide protected power. CleanSource HD UPS Series The company offers its CleanSource 750/625HD UPS, which is available in standalone modules rated at 750 kVA and 625 kVA for 480V and 400V applications, respectively. This system could be paralleled together to provide even more protected power. The product’s design allows for the use of auxiliary batteries in the event the customer requires extended, autonomous run time for certain applications. MIS CleanSource PowerHouse For customers looking for a complete, integrated continuous power system, the company packages its CleanSource UPS along with switchboards and automatic transfer switch; monitoring and control systems; fire detection; lighting; security; and air condition
