Modern homes and buildings are constantly dependent on electricity. A large number of appliances in businesses and households are powered by electricity. It is therefore increasingly important to improve the efficiency and reliability of UPS systems. UPS systems perform two important functions: They provide a stable power supply when AC power is available, and they provide a reliable source of power in the event of an AC power failure.
There are currently three main types of static (uninterruptible power supply) UPS: online, offline and linear interactive. Typically, households and small offices are equipped with linear or offline interactive UPS systems. Online types, on the other hand, are often used in data centers and for large-scale applications that require high reliability and electrical power. These three UPS types differ in their safety and electrical protection features and are designed to provide ideal performance for their respective applications. To achieve this, each component (inverter, rectifier, battery, filter, and bypass) is configured to work in harmony.
The rectifier, an important electronic component, converts AC power from the electrical grid into DC power. The rectifier plays an important role in the UPS because it charges the UPS battery, which serves as a backup power source in the event of a grid failure. The rectifier also supplies DC power to the inverter. There are two types of rectifiers, one with and one without a transformer, and one with a step-up converter. Battery packs can consist of a single battery or several batteries connected in parallel, with one or more battery packs connected in series.
Filters are also used in UPS systems to protect the UPS system and connected consumers from electromagnetic waves and high frequency interference. Electromagnetic and radio frequency interference from this type of equipment should always be kept to a minimum, as it can cause noise and harmful voltage spikes; keeping the peak input voltage within acceptable limits is essential to maintaining the efficiency of the UPS system.
The inverter is another important component of the UPS, as it produces the AC power needed by the connected loads. The size of the inverter limits the power of the load, measured in volt-amperes (VA). The inverter in a stand-alone or online UPS system is typically in standby mode and is only used in the event of a power outage or fluctuating mains power. In contrast, online UPS systems, classified as voltage and frequency independent (VFI), have inverters designed to operate continuously.
Inline UPS systems also have an automatic bypass that performs well. In order to protect critical devices, these bypasses provide a safety measure in case of a system failure. In such cases, the bypass by design moves the load connection to an alternative power source, so that the system operation is not interrupted. They also have the ability to resume operation if a system failure is detected.
