An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) allows small companies and domestic users to cope with power outages; but existing designs lack flexibility of control and require expensive battery maintenance, with a cost proportional to the outage compensation time. We combine a compact synchronous generator with a battery, with 10% of the capacity that would otherwise be required, to obtain a UPS with reduced maintenance costs for the same performance. Any UPS must respond immediately to a power loss, and our uninterruptible generator supply (UGS) is therefore built around real-time scheduling of its internal operations; this also makes it suitable for integration into the industrial gateway. The UGS is based on a real-time operating system, with an integrated wireless module providing connectivity to a web server, for monitoring and management, which can be performed remotely on a mobile device.
