Toshiba Introduces SiC-based Three-Phase Uninterruptible Power Systems Lineup

HOUSTON, TX — June 1, 2015 — Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) today announced its new G2020 Series uninterruptible power system (UPS). The G2020 Series is the latest three-phase UPS designed by Toshiba utilizing silicon carbide (SiC) power modules enabling the UPS to be 98% efficient with 50% load while operating in double-conversion mode.

The G2020 Series UPS utilizes silicon carbide power modules in a three-level design to provide customers with the ultimate in high efficiency power protection. Combining the latest in semiconductor technology with innovative circuit topology and high-performance full digital control ensures the highest level of reliable power quality to meet the demanding needs of the data center industry. With 98.2% efficiency, the highest in the industry for double-conversion UPS, the G2020 produces less heat, noise and interference, lowers cooling costs and saves energy as compared to the conventional UPS, and presents a solution to mission critical infrastructure. The G2020 Series is available in 500 and 750kVA.

“The Toshiba G2020 UPS is the premiere solution for demanding data center applications which require small footprint, high efficiency, and clean uninterruptible power,” said Greg Mack, Vice President and General Manager of the TIC Power Electronics Division. “The G2020, with full digital control, instantaneous waveform control and fast-response current control ensures the highest power quality for all UPS users.”

Jesus Penalver, Product Manager for the TIC Power Electronics Division, added “For redundant high-reliability UPS applications, the Toshiba G2020 excels with a footprint 17% smaller than its G9000 predecessor and up to 57% smaller than competing models. The future of power electronics is SiC power switching technology, with >33% higher junction temperature, higher switching speed, and extremely low switching losses.”
