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.
