In UPS ,the main power comes to the UPS and is used to charge a battery inside. The output from the battery is fed into a sine wave inverter which converts DC into AC and feeds to the computer in case of a power failure. In such a scenario, the battery is stopped from charging and instantly starts to supply power to the computer.
In Inverter ,AC is converted into DC and then is used to charge the battery. When the power supply goes off, the relay triggers the switch from mains to inverter. It is the use of a sensor and a relay that is the main difference between a UPS and an inverter, otherwise the two are same. And the use of relay and sensor cause the time delay in power supply from an inverter.

Major difference between inverter and ups?

  The difference's between an inverter and a UPS are as follows   1) CHANGE OVER TIME: An off-line ups (the standard) switches to the batteries in 3 to 8 milliseconds

The major difference between inverter and ups?

  An inverter simply takes a DC voltage, usually from a battery, and converts it to AC for use by standard appliances.   A UPS does the same thing, but has added circui

What is the difference between converter and an inverter?

The term converter usually refers to a DC to DC process where a higher or lower voltage is required. Even when a lower DC voltage is needed, it is sometimes more efficient to

What are the differences between multilevel inverters?

Inverters convert DC power into AC power through waves called  either sine waves or modified sine waves. Sine waves are the waves  that are typically found in power from a p

What is the difference between an Inverter and a Converter?

  An inverter is used to change DC current into AC; e.g., you could plug an inverter into the cigar lighter socket of your car and then plug 110v AC-powered equipment into

What is the difference between inverters and alternators?

  To keep it simple, an alternator (like the one in a car) takes rotating mechanical energy and creates AC electricity. An inverter is usually just an electrical converter

Technical difference between an inverter and a ups?

Uninterruptible Power Supply) A device that provides battery backup when the electrical power fails or drops to an unacceptable voltage level. Small UPS systems provide power

What is the difference between online ups and an online inverter?

From what I know a UPS (UN interruptible power supply) uses battery backup for power redundancy, keeping a system or server up for an hour or two during an outage. A inverter

What is the difference between inverter and Transformer?

An inverter changes DC power (like is generated from a solar panel) to AC to match the same type of power we get from the power company. A transformer reduces the power from
