How Does a UPS System Work?

Answer

A UPS is a protective device that protects a computer against voltage surges and spikes, voltage sags, total power failure and frequency differences. A standby UPS runs the computer on normal utility power until it detects a problem. At that point, it very quickly turns on a power inverter and runs the computer off of the UPS's battery.
