This guide provides information on selection, sizing, installation design, installation, maintenance, and testing of stationary standby batteries used in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems having an ac output. Design requirements of the UPS components are beyond the scope of this document. While this document applies to all UPS systems, it may be impractical to implement some of its guidance and recommendations with small, self-contained systems, such as products intended to back up individual personal computers.
The characteristics of the various battery energy systems available are described so that users can select the system best suited to their requirements. This guide also describes how the rectifier and the inverter components of the uninterruptible power system (UPS) can relate to the selection of the battery system.
