Our work, leisure, healthcare, economy, and livelihood depend on a constant supply of electrical power. Even a temporary stoppage of power can lead to relative chaos, monetary setbacks, and possible loss of life. Power outages can be especially disastrous when it comes to life-support systems making backup power in these situations absolutely critical.  This month's article takes a closer look at some of the obvious - and not so obvious - causes of power failures.
