A short answer might be to set up upsmon with a custom SHUTDOWNCMD that would report (log) that/when it is going to shutdown. Except for the test it will not actually shut down, just report.

For a larger integration test, involving actual shutdowns (and how long they take - so you know how much runtime + headspace your ups must have remaining to trigger the event) and perhaps poweroff of the UPS and whether it comes back up when wallpower comes back, you might stage a real production shutdown.

Also, to test just the UPS part you do not have to powercycle the server - you can run the upscmd's involved in the shutdown routine against the UPS which is not actually powering your system at the moment. 

Note that some UPSes do require non-trivial load to operate - then perhaps a display might suffice, or one of redundant server PSUs.

Hope this helps,
