Can you depend on your stored energy sources? This is a common pain point for any UPS user. We will cover the challenges in interfacing a UPS and generator and improvements in modern UPS using active filter technology. Along the same lines, we will uncover the mysteries around battery performance and capacity. Uncertainty with battery status is unacceptable to users and third-party battery monitoring can provide peace of mind. We will discuss how this achieved and how not to end up in the dark.


Join us to learn about:


  • Principles of UPS harmonics
  • Generator/UPS interface issues and solutions
  • Battery monitoring overview and best practices
  • How to mitigate stored energy uncertainty
