APC has a Free publication that explains various UPS designs. Some will adj. their output voltage during Brown-Outs.
I live in Philippines & Brown-Outs are Extremely Frequent here (as are Black-Outs). I run a 1000 Watt AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) to power all my computer equipment. It's motor driven & automatically increases the output AC voltage, when the input AC power sags.
