Dynamic UPS Solutions

mtu Kinetic PowerPacks provide a dynamic, uninterruptible power supply through kinetic energy and are engineered to withstand the most demanding power-supply challenges. We support critical applications around the globe in industries from 200 kW to 2,400 kW.

Dynamic UPS systems can instantaneously provide power using stored kinetic energy to drive their synchronous machines. They provide an “infinite” back-up power supply using diesel engines. In addition, a dynamic UPS acts as a power conditioner. The synchronous machine combined with the choke coil acts as a conditioner to filter spikes or transient interferences and to regulate the loads voltage within tolerance.

  • Small footprint: The mtu PowerPack can save up to 50% of floor space over static UPS designs.
  • Reliability: The lowest component count and low operational speed provide a superior design.
  • Durability: The kinetic energy is stored in the rotor, which continuously rotates and provides a known power source at all times.
  • Power-factor improvement: The input power factor remains close to unity.
  • Lower environmental impact: UPS systems do not require heavy batteries and do not generate chemical waste.
