power failure bridging


Explanation:
I partially agree with Mats but the 'over' is superfluous. I'm also including some links to support my answer, something that no one above has done.

battery backup


Explanation:
Fact is, without context it is impossible to translate this term.
A google search on "Stromausfallüberbrückung" nevertheless will lead to a list of household devices, where this term is listed among the specifications. In each case the only term, which fits is "battery backup". This means internal data in random memory is maintained for a given specified time period during a power outage. See example below:
