U.P.S. stands for Uninterrupted Power Supply. From the name itself we can  say that whenever there is no power supply or sudden shutdown of power then this device help from preventing the damage to the device to which it is connected.

An U.P.S (Uninterruptable Power Supply) is not only supply power, when there is a power failure, it also purifies the wave form of the supply, corrects the frequency and it supplies the backup with only some micro seconds of delay.

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS), uninterruptible power source or sometimes called a battery backup is a device which maintains a continuous supply of electric power to connected equipment by supplying power from a separate source when utility power is not available.

UPS stands for Uninterrupted Power Supply. It basically consists of a rectifier circuit and an inverter circuit. When the power supply is available, the rectifier charges the battery and supplies to inverter as well to meet the load requirement. When the power fails, the battery comes on line continues to supply power to the load through the inverter.

UPS mean uninterruptible power supply.
This system can be of two major types and  work  to ensure uninterruptible power within a specified period before backup comes in.
There is a  static type and the mechanical type.
The static type is common and consists of the rectifier/battery/inverter making up the system where as the mechanical type consists of transfer switch,backup generator and an electric motor directly coupled to motor-generator through a flywheel.
Static type has the advantage of less maintenance when compared with the mechanical type with rotating parts.
