For example, a data centre’s equipment might be rated at 800kVA. This is the measure of the load to be protected by the UPS. The data centre may choose to support this with 2 x 1000kVA UPS’s which work in tandem with each other. Under normal operation they will share the 800kVA load between them, each running at 40% or 400kVA. In the unlikely but not inconceivable event of one UPS failing, the balance of the load will fully transfer to the remaining operational UPS so that it runs at 80% capacity. The failed unit is therefore removed from the critical path until fixed, whereupon it can be returned to service without interruption to the load.
