Uninterruptible power supplies are like a parachute, you desperately hope that you never have to use one but when you do, you want it to work! Like parachutes there are many types of UPS, Line-Interactive, Off-Line, On-Line, Digital On-Line, but they all serve the purpose of protecting your system from crashing in the event of a power failure. There are a wide variety of UPS topologies, but deciding which technology is right can be a difficult task. Line Interactive Online Double Conversion It is interesting that sales globally are falling for the more basic technologies, i.e. off-line and Line-Interactive UPS Systems as many desk top users are now benefiting from advances in Laptop computers which don’t require any additional battery support, however sales for single phase and three phase On-Line technology is growing at about 8% per annum, why? The On-Line technology of an Uninterruptible power supply is better suited to server and data environments, offering regulated sine wave output, efficiency almost comparable with Line-Interactive, tightly regulated output, low reflected input harmonics; and because of advances in power switch devices, much better pricing! In fact On-Line models are now reaching price parity with most Line-Interactive alternatives but offering much higher performance levels. Applications for Off-Line and Line Interactive UPS have slowly been changing, for server applications these technologies are falling out of favour mainly because of the transfer time, typically 10m/s and poor mains regulation which for modern computer applications is an unnecessary risk. But for applications where a small break in power is not so much of a problem, such as tills, electric doors, lighting, CCTV, alarms, routers etc,. these more basic UPS can offer a low cost solution.
