DC Power System Development:
31 Site Build Out
Our power system integration team recently completed a large project for a utility’s mobile radio trunking network comprising 31 remote repeater sites.
The power systems required seven variations in conﬁguration and contained: redundant 24 volt rectiﬁers, power distribution, AC inverter, remote monitoring, low voltage disconnect, battery disconnect, batteries, assembled in a 19” relay rack.
Completion of the project involved several phases:
Phase 1) Deﬁne System Parameters Per Site: Provide power calculations and diagrams for preliminary approval by analyzing loads and duty cycle, run time on battery, recharge time, and remote monitoring parameters.
Phase 2) Engineer Development of Prototypes: Deﬁne component stack up in rack, generate wiring diagrams, and select battery types and capacity.
Phase 3) Prototype Production: Assemble three rack conﬁgurations for beta test, develop factory simulated application tests, and deliver to integration facility.
Phase 4) Conﬁrm Operation of Beta Sites: Radio integration facility visits to conﬁrm operation. On-site training and acceptance testing. Obtain Approvals at all levels – integrator/end user to proceed with full production.Here is an easy 10 simple questions that will get you started configuring your next Rackmount DC Power System.
