Uninterruptible Power Supply in UAE
About Uninterruptible Power Supply
Uninterruptible Power Supply
An uninterruptible power supply or source (UPS) is a device that provides emergency backup power when the main power source fails. A UPS is not the same as a standby generator or other emergency power systems. Unlike the latter, a UPS provides immediate protection from loss of input power, without an interruption in the flow of power. It does so by supplying energy stored in backup batteries, flywheels or super-capacitors. A UPS supplies emergency power only for a very limited period, usually a few minutes. This is sufficient to switch to another source of power or to save data and shut down the equipment properly. These devices also provide protection from major power surges.
A UPS consists of a battery, which provides power backup when the primary power source fails. The device is activated when it senses loss or a break in the flow of power from the main power source. The device converts incoming AC (alternating current) to DC (direct current) through a rectifier and then converts it back through an inverter. When the AC is converted into DC, it charges the flywheels or batteries and is converted into steady AC power through the inverter simultaneously. The steady AC re-created by the inverter is used to run computers and other IT equipment.
UPS devices vary in size and power capacity. They can be small units designed to protect a single piece of equipment without monitors to large devices used to supply backup power to an entire IT sector of a company or even buildings. Their working depends on their dependence or independence from voltage and frequency. Uninterruptible power sources using flywheels take up much less space and have better operating temperatures when compared to a battery powered UPS. An Uninterruptible power supply in UAE is a necessity in airlines, gas suppliers, hospitals, and defense establishments.
