I have a parallel UPS setup in my facility. I'm missing information on how this can be modelled using DCO?

Parallel UPS support is currently not supported but being worked on. In the mean time please use the below work around:
Version prior to 7.2
In N or N+1 setups, you can model a parallel UPS system as one UPS.
For N+1 setups, make sure that the modelled UPS has an internal redundancy of N+1 and that the UPS capacity is N. For example, 3 x 50 kW UPS units in an N+1 setup would give a capacity of 100 kW because the 3rd UPS is "standby" (for example 3 identical UPS units in parallel).
If you have UPS devices monitored by StruxureWare Data Center Expert, it is possible to associate all of them to the one UPS model object (new in version 7.2). This means that you will get all alarms on one device. The downside is that the reported impact might not handle the situation correctly (it might report "loss of power" instead of "loss of redundancy".

We going after new tender which would required DCO to model parallel UPSes. (i.e. 2N system, each system would have 4 UPS in parallel). Need to check with you if the our latest DCO version will support such feature.
