A Method and System for Grouping Multiple De-Stage Profiles in a Battery

Disclosed is a method and system for grouping multiple de-stage profiles in a battery to provide a flexible backup usage to users. The disclosed battery backup system stores multiple profiles in the battery based on amount of energy present in the battery, amount of energy discharged from the battery within a given period of time and timers.

Initially, the battery backup system combines three different categories of backup devices to provide a flexible power usage to the user. The three different categories may include but are not limited to an amount of energy present in the battery, amount of energy discharged from the battery within a given period of time and timers. Additionally, the three different categories combined in the system may provide backup power for saving critical data, extended run time during brownout and minimal power for using cache memory to an extended period of time till the power is restored. The categories combined in the battery backup system are processed based on the profiles stored in the battery system.

In an exemplary embodiment, by using an hdc profile during the power loss, the battery discharges 800 watts of power in 35 seconds. Thereafter, a de-stage operation stored with full high definition profile is activated to limit power usage. The power usage may include but not limited to 800 watts of power in 2 seconds, 600 watts of power in 5.33 seconds, 400 watts in next 5.33 seconds and 200 watts in next 5.33 seconds. Thus, the battery provides a backup for different categories as mentioned above based on the amount of energy stored in the battery and amount of energy discharged for a given period of time. So, the user of the system or designer easily analyzes the purpose of usage for backup based on the profile stored in the battery. Further, by using the hdc profile the battery is fully charged with current of 0.5 amperes to 4 amperes.

In another exemplary embodiment, by using an hdrhdc profile, during the first power loss, the battery discharges 800 watts of

power for 35 seconds. On activating the de-stage operation stored with full high definition profile in the battery backup system, the power usage may be limited to a predefined period of time. The power usage may include but is not limited to 800 watts of

power in 2 seconds, 600 watts of power in 5.33 seconds, 400 watts in next 5.33 seconds and 200 watts in next 5.33 seconds. Further, the battery is recharged within 120 seconds when power is back, for every 10 seconds of power off. Later, during the second stage of power loss, the battery again starts to discharge 800 watts of power for 35 seconds. Thereafter, the de-stage operation stored with full high definition profile in the battery backup system is activated to limit the power usage. Here, the power usage is similar to the power usage in first stage power loss, but the battery is fully charged with current of 0.5...
