AB works for a safer, more robust and less vulnerable society. The
computerization and the increasing use of IT, telecommuni-cations
and Internet together with other augmented use of electricity
brings about a severe dependence on electricity and
telecommunication, thus making our society
trend leads to new and higher demands on reliability of the operation
and of the infrastructure of electric power and telecommunication
supply. Accordingly, there is a need for new concepts, products
and services in the fields of power distribution, IT structure
and emergency power supply. Up to now, the emergency power supply
has been a private business, but in order to meet the new demands
it should be made public.
Straight out, the emergency power supply has to become more cost
efficient and more easily available in order to meet the new demands.
We suggest and elaborate new and better solutions for the electric
power supply of critical infrastructure. Our vision is a reduction
of the vulnerability by means of public emergency power and an
adapted IT infrastructure.
comprises solutions for securing electrical energy supply for
functions critical for sustaining operations and activities.
Such critical functions may be functions important
to society, operations of enterprises, or electricity dependent
functions important for the security and wellbeing of the citizens.
Society critical functions –
government, military, police, health care, crisis management,
fighting against terrorism, emergency communications.
Enterprise critical functions –
production, tele and data communications, data systems, emergency
lighting, financial functions
Functions important to the citizens:
emergency calls, tele, data and communication, internet banking,
door locks, intrusion alarms, elevators, emergency lighting, freezer/fridge,
food preparation, circulation pumps,
heating, water/waste supply och freezing protection.
implies a product development of the current electrical
distribution systems leading to a choice for citizens/enterprises/authorities
to choose security level in energy supply without suffering all
the chores and costs represented by know-how, operational
responsibility and high investment cost included in current
emergency power systems solutions.
network is independent of the ordinary electric distribution
network which also may serve as an independent redundant power
source. Thus it is possible to obtain a reliability and
availability outperforming by far the conventional power grid,
regardless it's strength or huw much is reinforced.
The design and realization of the Premiumel®
network is of course crucial to obtain this security and
availability. Specially developed system solutions and components
are vital to the functioning. UPN is holding patents for several of
these solutions and other patents are pending.
