This system acts as a backup when there is any interruption in the main power supply. In this system, the alternating current is already kept low. And is attached to a battery unit connected to a rectifier
When any kind of power is broken, the system comes into motion and the power in its battery is forwarded from DC to AC with the help of an inverter and the load connected to it is supplied.
