UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SUPPLY
PART 1 - GENERAL
1.1
SUMMARY
A.
Scope: This specification describes the operation and functionality of a continuous
duty, single-phase, static Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) hereafter referred to as
the UPS.
B.
Included Features of the UPS:
1. The UPS utilizes double conversion online topology designed to protect electronic
equipment by supplying reliable, network-grade power featuring extremely tight
voltage and frequency regulation.
2. The UPS features internal bypass and input power factor correction.
3. The primary sections of the UPS are: input disconnect and filter stage, input PFC
power stage, energy storage stage (DC bus capacitor bank), output power
(inverter) stage, bypass, and a battery charger. The control of power module and
fault detection logic is microcontroller-based.
a. The input disconnects and filter stage contains an input back-feed relay,
input filter, transient suppression, and battery select switches (mechanical
relays).
b. The Input PFC power stage contains non-isolated power-factor-correcting
AC/DC converters. These converters are capable of full power operation in a
very wide input voltage range or from a nominal DC battery voltage.
c. The energy storage stage is a split DC bus capacitor handling seamless
transitions from battery to online and vice versa as well as the low and high
frequency power stages ripple.
d. The output power (inverter) stage operates directly from the DC bus and
produces a configurable AC output voltage of 220, 230 or 240 Vac output. The
output of the UPS is connected either to the inverter or through a bypass relay
to the filtered input line.
e. The UPS contains a battery charger, which operates from the DC bus. The
UPS batteries are modular, hot-swappable, and user-replaceable. The UPS
can be restarted immediately after a prolonged power outage without waiting
for the battery to be recharged.
4. The UPS utilizes green mode, a patent-pending operating mode that bypasses
unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high
operating efficiency (typically 96%) without sacrificing any protection, exceeding
ENERGY STAR® qualifications. The UPS provides early-warning fault analysis on
batteries and will project battery replacement dates, enabling timely preventive
maintenance.
5. The UPS supports switched outlet groups. A switched outlet group can be
operated independently from the main UPS outlets, enabling non-critical load
shedding, reboot of hung equipment, and sequenced startup and shutdown.
6. The UPS has flash memory to facilitate firmware upgrades.
7. The graphical LCD display with multicolor backlight provides detailed information,
with the ability to configure the display locally.

supply and an output distribution system to provide quality uninterrupted power for a
mission-critical, electronic equipment load.
1. This specification describes the performance, functionality, and design of the UPS,
external battery packs, and connectivity solutions.
2. All programming and miscellaneous components for a fully operational system as
described in this specification are available as part of the UPS.

2.2
MANUFACTURERS
Basis of Design: Products specified are Smart-UPS On-Line Uninterruptible Power Supplies
as manufactured by APC by Schneider Electric and as listed on page 2 of this specification.
Items specified are to establish a standard of quality for design, function, materials, and
appearance. Equivalent products by other manufacturers are acceptable. The
Architect/Engineer will be the sole judge of the basis of what is equivalent.
MODES OF OPERATION
A.
Normal: The UPS output power stage (inverter) constantly recreates the UPS output voltage
waveform by converting the DC bus voltage to AC voltage through a set of IGBT switches. In
both online operation and battery operation, the output power stage (inverter) creates an
output voltage waveform independent of the mains input voltage waveform. Input voltage
anomalies such as brown-outs, spikes, surges, sags, and outages do not affect the amplitude
or sinusoidal nature of the recreated output voltage sine wave of the output power stage
(inverter). The input PFC power stage and the output power stage (inverter) shall operate in
an on-line manner to continuously regulate power to the critical load. The input PFC stage
shall be capable of full battery recharge while simultaneously providing regulated power to the
load for all line and load conditions within the range of the UPS specifications.
1. Overload Capability: The output power stage (inverter) is capable of withstanding
150% overload for 30 seconds, 125% overload for 1 minute or 105% overload for an
indefinite length of time.
2. Output Contactor: The output power stage (inverter) is equipped with an output
mechanical relay to provide physical isolation of the inverter from the critical bus. With
this feature a failed inverter will be removed from the critical bus.
3. Battery Protection: The inverter is provided with monitoring and control circuits to limit
the level of discharge on the battery system.
B.
Battery: Upon failure of the AC input source, the critical load continues being supplied by the
output inverter, which derives its power from the battery system. There is no interruption in
power to the critical load during both transfers to battery operation and retransfers from
battery to normal operation.
1. The UPS battery system is comprised of battery modules. Replacement batteries are
user-replaceable, hot-swappable replacement battery cartridges (RBCs).
2. For 2.2 kVA models, a minimum of one RBC (one battery module) must be installed,
providing 72 VDC nominal DC bus rail.
3. For 3 kVA models, a minimum of one RBC (one battery module) must be installed,
providing 96 VDC nominal DC bus rail.
4. The batteries of the UPS models in this specification are maintenance-free, leak-proof,
valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries with suspended electrolyte.
5. The UPS incorporates the Intelligent Battery Management system to continuously
monitor the health of each removable battery module as well as external battery packs
installed in extended run battery cabinets. This system notifies the user in the event that
a failed or weak battery module is found.
6. Additional battery packs may be added to increase runtime. The battery packs and the
battery modules within them are hot-pluggable, allowing for easy and quick installation or
replacement without the need for electrical wiring, electrician services, or powering down
of the UPS. The maximum number of external battery packs that may be connected to
the UPS is 10 for all units.
7. The UPS is shipped with battery modules preinstalled but disconnected.
C.
Charging: Upon restoration of the AC input source, the UPS simultaneously recharges the
battery and provides regulated power to the critical load.
1. The intelligent battery management system contains a temperature monitoring circuit
and compensation algorithm that regulates the battery charging current and voltage so
as to optimize battery life.
Page 7

3.
D.
2.3
The battery charging circuit remains active when in bypass and online states.
The UPS can be restarted immediately after a prolonged power outage without
waiting for the battery to be recharged.
Bypass: The system automatic bypass provides a transfer of the critical load from the Inverter
output to the automatic bypass input source during times when the inverter cannot support the
load. Such times may be due to prolonged or severe overloads or to UPS failure. The UPS
constantly monitors the output current as well as the bypass source voltage and inhibits
potentially unsuccessful transfers to automatic bypass from taking place. The design of the
automatic bypass switch power path consists of a bypass relay for 2.2 kVA and 3 kVA models.
1. Automatic Transfers: An automatic transfer of load to bypass takes place whenever the
load on the critical bus exceeds the overload rating of the UPS. Automatic transfers of the
critical load from bypass back to normal operation take place when the overload condition
is removed from the critical bus output of the system. Automatic transfers of load to bypass
also take place if for any reason the UPS cannot support the critical bus.
2. Manual Transfers: Manually initiated transfers to and from bypass may be initiated by the
user display interface.
INPUT PFC POWER STAGE
A.
General: The input PFC power stage of the UPS constantly rectifies the power imported from
the mains input of the system, converting input mains AC power to DC power for precise
regulation of the DC bus voltage, battery charging, and output power stage (inverter)
regulated output power.
B.
Input Current Total Harmonic Distortion: The input current THDI will be held to <7% at 50%
load and <5% at full load while providing conditioned power to the critical load bus and
charging the batteries under steady-state operating conditions. This is true while the UPS is
supporting loads of either a linear or non-linear type. This will be accomplished with no
additional filters, magnetic devices, or other components.
C.
Input Current Limit:
1. The input converter controls and limits the input current draw from utility to 150% of the
UPS output. During conditions where input current limit is active, the UPS is able to
support 100% load, charge batteries at 10% of the UPS output rating, and provide
voltage regulation with mains deviation of up to +/-20% of the nominal input voltage.
2. In cases where the source voltage to the UPS is nominal and the applied UPS load is
equal to or less than 100% of UPS capacity, input current will not exceed 130% of UPS
output current, while providing full battery recharge power and importing necessary
power for system losses.
D.
Charging:
1. The battery charging circuit contains a temperature compensation circuit, which shall
regulate the battery charging to optimize battery life.
2. The battery charging circuit remains active when in bypass and in normal operation.
2.4
OUTPUT POWER STAGE (INVERTER)
A.
General: The UPS output power stage (inverter) constantly recreates the UPS output voltage
waveform by converting the DC bus voltage to AC voltage through a set of IGBT-driven power
converters. In both normal operation and battery operation, the output power stage (inverter)
creates an output voltage independent of the mains input voltage. Input voltage anomalies such
as brown-outs, spikes, surges, sags, and outages shall not affect the amplitude or sinusoidal
nature of the recreated output voltage sine wave of the output power stage (inverter).
B.
Overload Capability: The output power stage (inverter) is capable of withstanding 150%
overload for 30 seconds or 125% overload for 1 minute or 105% overload for an indefinite
length of time.
Page 8
C.
Output Contactor: The output power stage (inverter) is equipped with an output mechanical
contactor to provide physical isolation of the inverter from the critical bus. With this feature a
failed inverter will be removed from the critical bus.
D.
Battery Protection: The inverter is provided with monitoring and control circuits to limit the level
of discharge on the battery system.
