Soft Magnetic Alloy Demand Increase in the UPS Field

Benefiting from the trend of digital economy and high frequency in the UPS field, the demand for soft magnetic alloy is expected to increase

Soft magnetic materials in the form of magnetic components (mainly ferrite PC44 and iron-silicon powder core soft magnetic materials) are used in UPS inverters, input terminals, batteries, DC-DC converters and other areas. Including main transformer, resonant inductor, PFC inductor, common mode inductor, differential mode inductor, etc. UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), that is, uninterruptible power supply, is a power protection device with an energy storage device, an inverter as the main component, and a stable voltage and frequency output. It is mainly used in a single computer, computer network system or other power electronic equipment to provide uninterrupted power supply. When the mains input is normal, the UPS will stabilize the mains and supply it to the load for use. At this time, the UPS essentially functions as an AC mains voltage stabilizer, and at the same time, it also charges the internal battery. When the utility power is interrupted, the UPS immediately converts the power of the internal battery into 220V AC power through the inverter, so as to maintain the normal operation of the load and protect the software and hardware of the load from damage. UPS inductors made of soft magnetic materials are used in high-frequency UPS power supplies to realize functions such as energy storage, filtering, voltage stabilization, and anti-interference.

The basic structure of the UPS is a set of rectifiers and chargers that convert AC power into DC power, and an inverter that converts DC power into AC power. The battery stores energy and maintains a normal charging voltage when the AC power is normally supplied. When the power supply is interrupted, the battery immediately supplies power to the inverter to ensure the AC output voltage of the UPS power supply. In December 2021, the State Council issued the “14th Five-Year” Digital Economy Development Plan, which clearly requires the promotion of cloud-network collaboration and computing-network integration in terms of “optimizing and upgrading digital infrastructure”. In February 2022, the “East Counting West Counting” project was officially launched. The National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration jointly issued a notice agreeing to implement new projects in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Chengdu-Chongqing, Inner Mongolia, Guizhou, and Gansu. 8 places including China, Ningxia, etc. started the construction of national computing power hub nodes, and planned 10 national data center clusters. The overall layout design of the national integrated big data center system has been completed. Recently, the China (Chengdu) Artificial Intelligence Industry CEO Conference gave news that the country’s first special policy for the computing power industry will be introduced soon. The policy will continue to improve the energy level of computing power facilities, promote the application of computing power empowerment, and promote the efficient allocation of supply and demand. Carried out systematic thinking and overall design. The market demand for large-capacity, modular, customized, high-frequency, and high-power uninterruptible power supply (UPS) products is growing rapidly, and the market demand is also shifting to high-end products. Modular uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can effectively increase product capacity And reliability, will become the main development direction of the future market. In 2022, the soft magnetic consumption in the global UPS field will be about 25,000 tons, and the market size will be about 1 billion yuan. Assuming that the industry growth rate remains at about 20%, the global soft magnetic consumption for UPS will reach 43,200 tons in 2025.
