Aging Grid Infrastructure Increases the Risk of Power Outages
POWERCOM IMD UPS Provides Backup Power
Power outages caused by natural disasters have been clearly confirmed in past data, and the root cause is usually the aging of the power grid infrastructure. For example, the main cause of frequent power outages in Michigan is the aging grid infrastructure. And the American Society of Civil Engineers rated Michigan's energy grid as Grade C, which is significantly lower than the standard. Also, the increase in extreme weather events has brought a great burden to the Michigan State Grid. Since Michigan experienced 111 weather-related power outages between 2019 and 2000, it is the most among all states in the United States.
On the other hand, Europe is also facing the similar problem of aging grid infrastructure. According to a report from Eurelectric, about one-third of the EU's distribution network has been in use for more than 40 years, and it is estimated that by 2030, half of all distribution networks will exceed the 40-year threshold. The vulnerability of the power grid has exacerbated the potential threats posed by natural disasters. In order to minimize the negative impact of power outages caused by natural disasters or aging power grid infrastructure, households must be equipped with UPS.
POWERCOM IMD UPS is suitable for home and office environments. UPS information is clear at a glance with graphic LCD display. In the event of a sudden power failure, the IMD immediately outputs a stable power supply, allowing the electronic device to shut down normally. Also, its built-in AVR can control the floating voltage within a reasonable range and protect electronic equipment from power problems such as overload, surge and short circuit.
