MODES OF OPERATION
A. The UPS shall be designed to operate as an on-line, double-conversion, reverse-transfer system with the following operating modes:
Normal - The critical AC load is continuously supplied by the UPS inverter. The rectifier/charger derives power from an AC source and supplies DC power to the inverter while simultaneously float-charging the reserve battery.
Emergency - Upon failure of utility AC power, the critical AC load is supplied by the inverter, which obtains power from the battery. There shall be no interruption in power to the critical load upon failure or restoration of the utility AC source.
Recharge - Upon restoration of utility AC power after a utility AC power outage, the rectifier/charger shall automatically restart and assume the inverter and battery recharge loads.
Bypass - If the UPS must be taken out of service for maintenance or repair or if the inverter overload capacity is exceeded, the static transfer switch shall perform a reverse transfer of the load from the inverter to the bypass source with no interruption in power to the critical AC load.
STATIC UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SUPPLY 26 33 53 - 2
5. Eco-Mode - When this mode is enabled by service personnel the UPS will power the critical load through the UPS static bypass. If the bypass source becomes unqualified the UPS will switch to Normal mode of operation as defined above. Utility power is considered unqualified when either the input voltage varies more than +10% of rated voltage or the input frequency varies beyond +10% of 60Hz. Ten (10) minutes after the bypass source becomes qualified the UPS will automatically transfer to Eco-Mode of operation.
