Title: POWER CONTROL SYSTEM FOR ELECTRICAL APPARATUS
Abstract:
A power control system enables an electrical apparatus to intermittently operate at power levels which exceed an available facility power. The power control system draws a sufficiently high current from a power source (e.g., mains supply) to supply power to components of the apparatus that generate a continuous below-threshold load, while at the same time, supplying a charge current for a battery module. The power control system can operate to use the battery module to supply power to components of the apparatus that draw excess power when the electrical apparatus operates at an above-threshold power level.
