UPS. Google it.

Or a small generator.

The power of the PSU isn't that important; what you need to determine is how much power the system, including the monitor and other accessories, requires. How long does it need to be powered up if there's a power outage? That will determine the size of the UPS. You can use a PSU calculator to determine your system's power requirements.
