How to Calculate UPS runtime?

Video Transcript –

One of the topics that we’re going
to start off with is, how to calculate
runtime for an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

It’s important to note
that each UPS uses a different amount of
batteries. So in order to determine your
runtime, you need to ascertain which UPS
you’re going to be using and what the
load is. So using a simple formula of
determining what the current draw from the
battery is, we can then use that current
on a specific discharge curve of that
particular battery to work out exactly how
much runtime we’re going to be using.
Maybe I need to stop there.
