I added a short chapter 3 to cover what I understand is the configuration.

The source material was the User Manual 6.5. Typical setups for big

and http://www.susaaland.dk/sharedoc/nut-2.0.3/docs/big-servers.txt
but I chose one UPS per server power inlet to avoid any discussion of 
cabling topology.
