The above image is a single line diagram of an electrical system that I need to create in Revit. The inrow UPS's are connected to two SB's for redundancy purposes. Each SB need's to account for the full 10kW load for each inrow UPS. In the example above, the inrow UPS's would contribute 30kW to each SB. However, for the MSB we only need to account for the actual load to each SB. In the above case, it would 15 kW from each SB. Is there any way to account for the additional redundant load for each of the SB's without the MSB seeing the redundant load? Preferably by the Revit electrical system but if not, any ghetto workaround (i.e.. calculated values in schedules) would be acceptable. The inrow UPS's also have to have the correct loads associated with the connectors b/c the spaces they are in are reading the electrical loads.

How are you intending to show this information on the final drawings. For the MSB, I assume you'll use a Panel Schedule, but do you plan to create a Panel Schedule or an Electrical Equipment Schedule for the SB's as well?
We can use either Panel or Electrical Equipment Schedules as it's not the final drawing that's important. We need to be able to keep track of how loaded the SB's and MSB's are while we add more equipment to the circuits.
A friend of mine has pointed me towards using load classifications in panel schedules, but I'm still trying to figure out how to get them to even show up in the schedule.
With a little help from Martin Schimd I was able to utilize Load Classifications and Electrical Panel Schedule calculations to provide us with the data we needed. Here's a link to his video which I used to derive the logic from:
