Increasing emphasis to provide power supply for more duration during voltage drops or electricity mains failure paved the way for the evolution of diesel rotary ups devices. These devices are used to provide continuous power supply even at the voltage drop conditions or mains failure. The reliability, high efficiency, long lifespan and low operational cost are the considerable factors for the rising demand for these devices in numerous industry verticals. These devices have been widely employing in various industries including aviation, healthcare, semiconductors, defense and telecommunications sectors. Owing to rising demand for these industries across the globe, the deployment of these devices has been increasing and is estimated to increase further over the forecast period which propels market growth.
The diesel rotary ups comprises of diesel engine, generator, kinetic energy storage module and coupling choke. The kinetic energy accumulator consists of inner and outer rotor; the outer rotor runs mechanically free whereas, the inner rotor is driven by the main shaft which rotates at a speed of 1500-1800 rpm for 50HZ frequency and 1800-2500 rpm for 60HZ frequency. The system consists of three phase AC and DC windings which assist primarily during the energy storage. The energy storage is done in conditioning mode in which the AC winding is powered to create a rotary magnetic field which turns the outer rotor usually fly-wheel at a speed of 3000rpm.
During the time of power breakdown, the stored energy is transferred to the alternator which acts a power generator in these devices. In case of power breakdown, the kinetic energy accumulated in the outer rotor and this accumulator will supply the power until the diesel engine to run at its synchronous speed. Within the short span, the diesel engine is turned to the source of power and prevents the ceasing of the equipment. High efficiency coupled with the less maintenance and suitability to versatile applications stimulated the emergence of these devices in various end user industries. This equipment doesn’t require any conditioned space. The market for these devices is estimated to be $XX billion in 2015 and is estimated to reach $XX billion with a CAGR of XX% by 2021.
The diesel rotary ups hosts its segmentation based on power rating, application, industry verticals and on geography. Increasing demand for the telecommunications and process industries and need for these devices augmented the growth in the market. In addition, rising concern on power generation and damage of equipment due to sudden power breakdowns also bolstered the adoption of these devices. However, mechanical systems require some periodic maintenance, “failure to start” scenario sometimes and requirement of floor space in a plant are some of the factors which are estimated to hinder the market growth.
Americas region is estimated to be the pioneer in this market due to early and continuously developing technologies and increasing adoption of this equipment in various telecommunication industries and healthcare industries. U.S., Mexico, Brazil are the leading growth contributors from this region. Owing to the continuous rise in industries where diesel rotary ups equipment integrated have made these countries dominate from this region. APAC region is estimated to have brisk growth over the forecast period because of large scale manufacturing plants in China coupled with growing establishment of industries in emerging economies like India anticipates market growth. Key player in this market include Piller Group GmbH HITZINGER GmbH EURO-DIESEL SA Standby Power Generation - UK Limited and E1 DYNAMICS Inc.
