A rack-mounted DC power-supply system utilizing Li-ion batteries, which have higher energy density than conventional VRLA batteries, was developed. The system was designed to have the management functions of Li-ion batteries, such as overcharge protection, over-discharge protection, and cell-voltage equalization, by taking operational requirements into consideration. The volume and weight of the entire system were decreased to one-fourth and three-fifths, respectively, of the volume and weight of a conventional system, making the proposed system ideal as a high-energy-density backup power supply. The functions, system configuration, and characteristics of this rack-mounted DC power supply system utilizing Li-ion batteries are described.
