Roadmap for DC

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


DC grids are considered to be a key technology for the connection, collection and integration of renewable energy resources, for the realization of integrated power systems, for mobile applications (electric ships, aircrafts), for new types of urban and industrial distribution power networks and to bridge and support existing AC systems. Advanced power electronic components, power converters and system protection are enabling DC grids on multiple voltages levels. Especially medium voltage DC grids are expected to play a key role in managing the higher power flows in our future distribution grids. Roadmap for DC and different steps and research at the TUD is presented with focus on DC grids and DC microgrids. Problem of Power Flow control in DC grids is addressed first an Power flow controller introduced. A zonal protection framework where the low voltage dc grid is partitioned according to short-circuit potential and provided degree of protection, and several known protection schemes that ensure selectivity, sensitivity and security will be discussed.
