Uninterruptible power supply acts of heart of providing supply to electronic devices in home in case of power failure. The output of UPS contains harmonics and it is reduced by using proposed modified rectifier utilizing solar energy as a source. This paper deals with design and fabricate improved power quality converter for Uninterruptible Power Supply system and analyze the total harmonic distortion at input supply as well as charging the battery with the help of photovoltaic system..
