Abstract: Nowadays static UPS systems are preferred for low-power applications, although rotary UPS systems offer some interesting advantages. The rotary UPS now having only high end applications and is not available for, hospitals-critical loads like operation theatre and ICU’s, utility, small collocations, military applications- data centers , telephone equipments – mobile towers, storage devices and various data centers. In this paper, simulation investigations for a diesel rotary UPS system have been carried out using MATLAB / SIMULINK for possible implementation of this system to feed the critical loads as described above uninterruptedly. The name Flywheel energy ride through came from the operation of Flywheel in the rotary UPS. Flywheel is the kernel of the system described above.
Keywords: Diesel Rotary UPS, Flywheel Energy Storage, Kinetic Energy, Rotary UPS.
