Indeed, several causes of power supply interruption can appear, from the most basic to the most serious.
Consequences of an electrical interruption
Several types of possible impact on your facilities or your production:
- Micro power cut : the few thousandths of a second of a power cut that can result in restarting a computer
- A power failure over a determined time for a specific process
- Overvoltage : a nominal value greater than the maximum value provided for the normal operation of an electrical device
- Under pressure : a nominal value lower than the maximum value provided for the normal operation of an electrical device
- Tension peaks : an instantaneous overvoltage, of short duration, and of high amplitude, due to the stopping or starting of high-power devices, and which can eventually damage the electrical components.
- Lightning : a very significant overvoltage occurring suddenly during bad weather conditions The majority of electrical disturbances are tolerated by computer systems,
The damage can be substantial, resulting in, depending on the environment:
- data loss especially in a data center or a banking center
- service continuity, vital in hospitals
- damage in industrial facilities
- financial losses for most sectors
In the event of a power cut, the energy stored in the back-up battery allows the equipment to be powered for a short time.
It is therefore essential to test your inverters with a load bank and thus avoid this kind of consequence.
