British and Indian researchers are working together to combine solar power with bio-mass and hydrogen to create a Bio-CPV uninterruptible power supply.

British and Indian researchers are working together, in the hope that a low-cost combination of solar power with bio-mass and hydrogen will create a Bio-CPV uninterruptible power supply.

The project is expected to generate power tt about 45 households in a remote village in West Bengal by 2016. It has been jointly funded by Research Councils UK and India’s department of science and technology.

"Descentralised hybrid power plants with different renewable technologies can be the most efficient, cheap and sustainable options for rural electrification,” said UK project leader Professor Tapas Mallick in the research paper related to the project.

The biomass and hydrogen will be produced locally.

The research, which began in 2012, is being conducted by scientists from British universities in Sheffield, Exeter and Nottingham, and the Indian institutions Visva-Bharati, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay.

Power management company Eaton has added an advanced uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system line to its UPS portfolio in India.

The UPS is designed for protection and support of critical industrial operations in heavy engineering and manufacturing. The UPS ranges from 15kVA to 80kVA.

According to Eaton, the system delivers an efficiency
of up to 98.5%. The 93E provides surge suppression for load, detects location of faults and is able to switch to double-conversion operation in less than 4ms.

Eaton’s UPS uses sensing circuitry and three-stage charging technique aiming to extend the service life of the UPS battery while optimising battery recharge time.

"Eaton's extended range of 93E UPS is an ideal solution for facilitating a lower total cost of ownership through a combination of energy efficiency and high reliability in extensive manufacturing and other mission-critical operations," said Syed Sajjadh Ali, managing director Eaton India.

The introduced range enhances compatibility by providing a 0.99 input power factor and less than 5% total harmonic distortion, thus eliminating interference with other critical equipment in the same network, the company said.

According to a recent research report, the Indian UPS market is expected to increase at a rate of around 11% from 2014 to 2018 due to the growth of industrial and commercial infrastructure in India.
