Flywheel System — Vycon
Vycon's VDC-XXT flywheel provides 24/7 power protection for mission-critical applications. Paired with three-phase uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), the company's patented flywheel technology brings DC power capacity using the kinetic energy of the high-speed flywheel for instantaneous and reliable power backup. It can operate at temperatures of up to 104°F (40°C) and has a 20-year operational life expectancy. The VDC product line offers the flexibility to select the power level and run time combination that will meet specific application requirements. Upon a power failure, the VDC-XXT will supply seamless DC energy, allowing the UPS to transfer to a facility’s backup generators upon a utility power outage. For applications without an engine generator-set or for customers who still want to use batteries, it can operate in parallel with batteries. In this configuration called “battery hardening,” the VDC is the first line of defense against power disturbances, saving the batteries for prolonged power outages.
