Back-up power systems are an integral part of most if not all mission-critical installations. Services as varied as data centers, communications networks, and plant operations all rely on continuous availability of quality power. Traditionally batteries have been the Achilles heel of telecom sites and other power quality applications. The cost of replacement and the sub par reliability required for full time energy availability and poor low temperature performance of batteries has always haunted telecom companies. Not to mention the environmental impact associated with the disposal of these devices. With the introduction of new back-up energy storage systems ultracapacitors are finding their ways into the power quality mainstream.
