An uninterruptable power supply is a power device for a computer (or other things) which is designed never to lose power in the middle of crucial operations. For example, if you're running a computer which is in charge of a critical process and there is a disruption in the power coming into the computer, the uninterruptable PSU (power supply unit) is designed to make sure the computer doesn't stop the process it was working on and lose data.

"...needed by a power supply?" The power supply itself, unloaded, needs very little power to be on.If you mean to ask "How do you know what power rating to choose when selecting a power supply?" This is determined by adding up all the loads that will be attached to the supply.For instance, for a PC you can add up all the wattage demand of the mother board + video card + hard drives + all other components, plus 30%; then select the supply with the closest wattage rating above the sum of your components.
