Fast Charging in Inverter/UPS: A Game-Changer for Power Cuts

Fast charging in UPS

Fast Charging in Inverter/UPS: A Game-Changer for Power Cuts where the electricity availability is deficient. There are areas in the world like Nigeria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, etc., where the power coming from the grid is unstable, and the timing for grid power availability is minimal. Lead Acid battery takes 12 to 15 hours to charge completely, which requires too much time in these areas. As the power is available continuously, maybe 2 to 5 hours maximum. So, in these circumstances, the tubular Lead Acid batteries never get charged to the threshold level, which deteriorates the battery life.

Fast charging in Inverters/UPS refers to recharging the connected battery quicker than standard charging. This can be beneficial in areas with frequent power cuts, as these areas do not have enough time to charge the tubular lead acid batteries due to too many power cuts. https://suvastika.com/tubular-battery-is-c20-and-c10-and-lithium-battery-is-c1-capacity/ So the only solution for these areas is to have the fast charging by the Inverter/ UPS. Su-vastika company has designed its Pure Sinewave series with ATC having a fast-charging mechanism by which the Tubular battery is charged faster or Quick charge technology, and the same charger helps the Lithium battery to charge as well as Su-vastika has designed all its product range to run the Lithium-ion battery range as well. ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quick_Charge

Here are some key points to understand about fast charging in Su-vastika Inverter/UPS:

Not all inverters/UPS offer fast or Quick charging: It’s essential to check the specifications of your specific model to see if it boasts this feature. Some manufacturers might use terms like “rapid charge” or “boost charge” to indicate this capability.

Faster charging comes with patented technology:  At Su-vastika, we have made fast charging with 25 Amp with intermittent charging technique so that the Tubular battery is not affected. If we give straight away fast charging, then the chances of battery plates getting hardened are very high. Hence, we charge the battery with an intermittent charging current of 25 Amps, which is suitable for a 200 Ah battery and 150 and 100 Ah batteries can also work with the same charging current. To achieve the result of fast charging, Su-svastika has made the following design changes:

  • Transformer Design: We have designed the transformer of our Pure Sinewave UPS range where the transformer can provide a higher charging current with intermittent timings.
  • Software change in the Microprocessor: We have changed the charging software for which Su-vastika has already filed a patent for an intermittent fast charging technique that does not let the battery heat while charging, and water losses also remain unchanged. As the fast charge will result in heating inside the battery, our patented technology of Intermittent fast charging does not affect the battery water loss and battery life is maintained up to the mark.

Su-vastika offers adjustable charging: Su-vastika offers in its Pure Sinewave UPS with ATC models the option of selecting variable charging current from 5, 10, 15 and 20Amp current selections. This selection allows the user to choose the battery size to be smaller or bigger. So, by selecting 5 Amps, the user can install a 50 Ah Lead Acid battery. So, in areas where there are low power cuts, they can choose a smaller battery size. In the case of Lithium-ion battery bank sizing, a 25 Amp charging current can be selected for 80 to 100 Ah of battery sizing.

Fast Charging in Inverter/UPS: A Game-Changer for Power Cuts is an essential for the areas where the power cuts are very long, and Grid is hardly available.

Safety is paramount: Always ensure you’re using a compatible battery with your inverter/UPS and following the manufacturer’s recommendations for charging practices. This includes avoiding modifications or using unsuitable batteries, as it can lead to safety hazards.
