Chief Principles Of Uninterrupted Power Sources

In laymanâs terms, a UPS system is not a bunch of big brown trucks delivering your packages. An uninterrupted power source is a specialized apparatus that provides backup power for all of your electronic equipment in the event of a power outage. It stores power in an internal battery, and will provide you a buffer long enough to save your work or properly shut down your equipment before you lose your work.

UPS systems come in many different shapes and sizes, and can suffice several different needs at once. Here are just a few of the ways you may benefit from the use of an uninterrupted power source.

Uninterrupted power sources usually fall in three main categories: online, line-interactive, and stand-by. Online UPS systems are essentially connected without any extra transfer switches, so when the power goes out the batteries in your machine will automatically kick on keeping your electronics running smoothly.

When speaking of line-interactive UPS systems, they function somewhat like a standby UPS. The difference is that the line-interactive system includes a multi-tap variable-voltage autotransformer. Sounds like a super complicated concept, but it really just means that the system is capable of withstanding voltage regulation issues.
An offline or standby UPS (SPS) system only offers basic features such as surge protection and battery backup. This type of system is connected directly to your buildingâs main power source. When the power goes out the system will kick on within a second. These sorts of systems are best for equipment such as a personal computer and other household electronics.
Applications

If you are looking to support a large business environment, a reliable power source is of the utmost importance. If youâre running all of your electronics on a single backup machine, you run the risk of losing everything if that machine fails. Itâs safer and adds more reliability to break it down into several different backup power sources. This way the failure of one of your UPS systems will not impact your whole operation.

The efficiency of your setup can be measured in a couple different ways. The industry usually sets the normal efficiency rate of a UPS anywhere between 93 and 96%, but they tend to run these tests under optimal conditions. Be sure to plan on your actual efficiency to run around ninety percent. This is yet another reason to run more than one UPS system at a time.
