What Types of Uninterruptible Power Supply Systems Are There?

Data centers require power, in a stable and continuous supply, and it must be controlled carefully. Incoming fluctuations such as voltage dips or surges can damage sensitive electronic equipment, and power outages result in costly downtime. These hazards can be prevented with the use of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. A UPS regulates the flow of power and, in the event of an outage, provides battery backup so operations can continue with little to no disruption. Battery power will last long enough to either shut down equipment safely or activate an alternative source such as a generator. There are three [...]
