A new topology for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), called Isolated Parallel System (IP-System), combines the advantages of some of the most popular system designs while eliminating their main limitations and drawbacks.

It also shows why an IP-System can be seen as a green alternative to existing UPS scheme topologies.
