    UPS can range from a few hundred watt to a few hundred kW or more. Depending on what document/UPS you are referring to, the term "auxiliary voltage" can have different meanings.
    It could be an internal auxiliary voltage for control purposes or the bypass voltage or something else.

    Please post where you got this information from.
