I'm a bit confused by your description, so here is how I understand
your setup: all three UPSes are attached to the same machine, so I am
assuming that you have all three USB cables coming to one machine
running nut. Then there are three distinct machines, each plugged into
one UPS, right?
If so, then just configure nut for all three UPSes, and then each UPS
from the wall at a time. The notifications than nut receives will let
you identify each UPS.
