Power Backup Systems in Kenya 

Nowadays, everything uses electricity. Without electricity most of our day to day lives comes to a halt. It can be very inconveniencing not only for businesses, but also for homes. This is why you need a Power Back up System. We will first explain what it is.


Power back-up systems are exactly what the name suggests- they are systems that are used to backup your power.


Basically, power back up systems are cost-effective, simple solutions against blackouts and power fluctuations. Unlike traditional generators, they can be installed indoors in a storage area, require no fuel, running costs or maintenance and are fully automatic.


We do power back up installations for both commercial and domestic use in Kenya. We have a team of experts who are able to advice on the type of system you require that will fit your needs.


Overview of what a Power Back up System entails:


1. An Inverter Charger 


An inverter /charger converts DC power to AC power and then passes it along to the connected equipment. it is connected to an AC power source to continuously charge the attached batteries when AC utility power is available. 


2. A battery 


A backup provides power to a system when the primary source of power is unavailable. Rechargeable backup batteries are kept charges by the prime power supply.


3. Changeover switch  

A changeover switch transfers a house's electricity input from commercial power lines to a backup system in the case of an outage. the switches connect to the system, the main power supply, and the house. With he flip pf the switch, all power automatically changes over.


4. Battery Fuse


The fuse is there to protect against short circuits and for overload protection. If at anytime the current flowing through the fuse exceeds the rated value of the fuse, it will automatically cut off the power supply. Without a fuse, a short circuit can cause a fire or even make batteries explode since the huge currents involved release vast amounts of stored energy.


5. Surge Protector 


The surge protector (commonly known as (SP) is the most complete power protection device combining over-voltage, under-voltage, power -backup surges and spikes/surge protection. Additionally, there is a delay when power returns to normal. This will ensure that the appliance is not switched on-off repeatedly during fluctuations nor it subjected to a massive surge normally experienced when power returns after power cuts.
