CODE of CONDUCT on Energy Efficiency and Quality of AC Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS)
This Code of Conduct covers Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS according to EN 62040-3 Ed. 1.0 b: 1999) delivering 1-phase and 3-phase uninterruptible power above 0.3kVA at 230/400 V.
The UPS are designed in different configurations and operations.
Typical circuit arrangements are “UPS double conversion” with or without bypass, “UPS line interactive operation” with or without bypass and “UPS stand-by operation”.
In the rest of this Code of Conduct these different configurations and operations of equipment will be simply referred to as "UPS". This Code of Conduct does not cover:
- UPS designed or complying with specific customer requirements impacting efficiency such as DC/battery voltage, additional isolation, special cooling …;
- UPS based on rotating machines.
