Improving Reliability with Backup and Standby Power Supplies

Many industrial and commercial consumers require higher power quality than that available directly from the supply network. Improving the performance of the network is both difficult and expensive, so it is left to the consumer to take action to mitigate the effects of poor power quality.

There is no single solution. The most appropriate solution will be determined by the power level involved, by the quality and reliability level required, by the quality and reliability of the incoming power, by geographical location, and by cost. Solutions are available for every scenario and a detailed analysis is necessary to select the correct and most economic solution for the particular application and working environment.

This paper provides an introduction to the subject and an overview of the most common solutions for standby power and their corresponding energy sources.
