Modular power protection and conversion technology, particularly in the form of UPSs, has long been used in commercial applications, but take-up in industrial applications has, to date, been relatively slow. This relatively slow uptake is due, in part, to a limited understanding of the ‘ilities’ (‘Availability’, ‘Reliability’, ‘Scalability’, ‘Flexibility’ and ‘Maintainability’) commonly associated with modular technology and how the various ‘ilities’ complement each other. In this fourth of five papers, the author will define flexibility in the context of the increasingly important and popular modular technology and will discuss how truly flexible systems allow system designers to design power protection systems capable of adapting to the potentially changing needs of a site and/or its critical load.
