How do uninterruptible power supplies work?

Uninterruptible power supplies are essentially a battery backup for your computers and critical services. They connect to your mains supply and have internal battery packs that provide storage during a power outage.

In a line interactive smart ups when the ac input voltage is stable and there are no issues with the incoming power, the device will filter the power and provide a stable output voltage to your devices or services. This is a healthy status, where the battery pack is not discharged.

This is called a double conversion mode where the line voltage supplies power to a rectifier which converts the AC to DC supply. This DC power is then inverted back to an AC output voltage providing power for the connected services or device.

The duration that your UPS will provide power is known as the ‘UPS automation’. The automation of your UPS depends on a number of factors such as battery capacity, load size and power factor. There are other considerations that affect how long your UPS will last such as battery age and condition, operating temperatures and the efficiency of your UPS.

A ups system is common in commercial applications providing battery backup and power supplies for computers and IT systems.

Smaller devices or entry level units can simply plug into the outlets in your building and have their own protected outlets on the rear of the unit. These type of units are readily available for purchase in stock in the uk.

If more power is required or a larger capacity unit this will usually be fulfilled with an industrial three phase ups system. These are common for businesses with larger output requirements and large amounts of data and systems to protect such as data centres.
