應用顯示器背光色彩表示電池狀態的電源管理系統Power management system using display backlight color to indicate battery status

本發明關於一種電源管理系統,尤指一種應用顯示器背光色彩表示電池狀態的電源管理系統。 The invention relates to a power management system, in particular to a power management system that uses a display backlight color to indicate a battery state.

目前的機房主要用來配置伺服器、通信設備或者電源系統,以用來處理大量資訊或提供電力,然而隨著網路速度的快速發展以及資訊量越來越龐大,為了提升資訊處理的速度以及提供足夠的電力,機房需要越龐大的建構規模,也因此,有效管理機房已是新世代機房管理的一大趨勢。 The current computer room is mainly used to configure servers, communication equipment or power systems to process large amounts of information or provide power. However, with the rapid development of network speed and the increasing amount of information, in order to improve the speed of information processing and To provide sufficient power, the larger the scale of the computer room, the more effective the management of the computer room has become a major trend in the management of the new generation of computer rooms.

以電源系統為例,因為隨著電子設備的消耗功率提升會導致用電量增加,為了提供足夠的電力給電子設備,因此電源系統需要設置更多數量的電池,也因此讓線路變得更為複雜。為了提升管理機房的效率及維護,有一種管理方式是將線路以不同顏色區分,再將相同顏色的線路群組化,另有一種管理方式是將電池的插座或連接埠配置成不同顏色,再將相同顏色的插座或連接埠連接在一起,以將供電目標相同或者供電量相同的電池配置成相同群組,以透過色彩群組化的方式方便管理電池。 Take the power supply system as an example, because the power consumption of electronic equipment will increase, the power consumption will increase. In order to provide sufficient power to the electronic equipment, the power supply system needs to install a larger number of batteries, which also makes the circuit more complex. In order to improve the efficiency and maintenance of the management computer room, one management method is to distinguish the lines with different colors, and then group the lines of the same color. Another management method is to configure the battery sockets or ports in different colors, and then The sockets or ports of the same color are connected together to configure batteries with the same power supply target or the same power supply into the same group, which facilitates the management of the battery through color grouping.

群組化的電池管理方式,其優點是可方便管理電池。但是當電池故障的時候,在機房現場的維護人員僅能得知有多少群組的電池,但還是得逐一檢測所有群組已找到故障群組,對於維護人員來說無法快速且有效的找到故障的電池群組,使得在維護上需要花費大量人力及時間。若沒有即時排除故障的電池亦可能釀成危險。 The grouped battery management method has the advantage of facilitating battery management. However, when the battery is faulty, the maintenance personnel at the site of the equipment room can only know how many batteries are in the group, but still have to detect all the groups one by one and find the faulty group. For the maintenance staff, it is impossible to find the fault quickly and effectively. Battery group, it takes a lot of manpower and time to maintain. Batteries can also be dangerous without immediate troubleshooting.
