The basics of UPS

How does a UPS continue to supply the electricity in the event of a power outage? The structure is actually quite simple.

Imagine an extension cord that you often use in your office or home. It has multiple plugs at the end of a cord that is connected to the power supply on the wall and sends electricity to the equipment connected to it. It may be easy if we consider UPS as an extension cord with a power storage function.

First, power is transmitted from the power supply to the UPS. Electricity flows straight to the equipment, and at the same time, it is stored in the storage batteries inside the UPS. And in the event of a power outage or other emergency, these storage batteries are used to supply power to each device. This is how electricity is continuously supplied without stopping even for a moment.
