energy consumption, and flexible expansion are the goals of a data center. Therefore, it has higher requirements on the reliability, economy, scalability, operation and maintenance cost, energy conservation, environmental protection, and space occupied by the power supply system of the equipment room.
With the development of battery technology and the introduction of green energy such as wind energy, solar energy and fuel cell in data center, more opportunities and challenges are brought to data center. In a sense, the uninterrupted power supply technology of data center depends on the development of battery technology. The innovation of battery will also bring the change of power supply architecture of data center. For example, the development of traditional low density lead-acid battery to high energy density lithium battery technology may change the backup battery from the battery room to the IT cabinet.
With the rapid development of lithium battery storage technology in data center, it has become an important means to solve the above problems due to its characteristics and advantages such as peak cutting and valley filling, on-demand response, on-demand management, power supply quality assurance, renewable energy integration, and reserve energy reserve. Lithium batteries meet the diverse backup power requirements of different customers. When a power failure occurs, the backup power system of the data center provides power support to ensure the normal operation of the data center.
Compared with traditional lead-acid batteries, which have large volume, high energy consumption, difficult maintenance, and capacity expansion, lithium batteries with light weight, low energy consumption, long service life, simple maintenance, and flexible and rapid deployment can provide more reliable power supply for data centers. Lithium-ion batteries last longer, don't need to be replaced for 10 years, are more cost-effective, and are better suited for today's data centers.
