A distributed power supply system with highly efficient characteristics has been developed to replace conventional centralized power systems in telecommunications offices. In this system as in conventional centralized power systems, a stand-by energy system composed of batteries and engine-generator sets is used as a back-up system for the commericial power lines. However, the distributed power system, except for the engine-generator set, is installed in the telecommunications room. Thus, the floor load limitation is an important design factor. This paper describes a stand-by energy system design that considers floor load conditions and is based on reliability analyses. These analyses show that the distributed power system should be designed as follows: (1) Using a fully duplicated engine-generator set. (2) With battery reserve time reduced to one sixth that of conventional centralized power systems. (3) With transfer switch unavailability designed to be less than one half of the existence switch unavailability.
