Load cals for North American voltage works something like this:
Obtain load details from the rating plate on the back of the switch. The trick is getting a measurement called VoltAmps. (that would be a cool name for a Rock band...) The 3750 is given in terms of voltage and current (amps), so now just multiply the two to obtain VA. Just for the fun of it, sometimes the load is given in watts, if so, as a rule of thumb, divide given wattage figure by 0.7 to obtain For example, the 3750-48TS is close to 75 watts, therefore: 75/.7=107 volt-amps.
VA are commutative so now just add up each of your VAs. Toss in around 30% fudge factor so you can add more Cisco switches (I bet a ISR would look good in those racks...) You need to support 60 minutes for 214 (total VA for both 3750's) + 64 (30% fudge factor) and your grand total is 278 VAs.
Add there ya go! I would make sure the whatever UPS I used would do power conditioning and monitoring so I know when the battery is getting old.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
