the electricity is going to be tripped for less than a minute. at that time, is it possible to provide some kind of power to the PC so it does not have to forced to shut down, but continue on.

what kind of technology tools are available that is small enough to fit in and work on a PC?

thanks

A UPS battery will work.  If it's just for one PC and less than a minute, I wouldn't go too crazy with the price.  This should do the trick:

If going the UPS route, it will be necessary to shut the system off once to install the UPS between the wall socket and the system.  However, hopefully you can choose an convenient time to do that.
