Low Voltage Direct Current (LVDC)
Awakening of a long forgotten power
Adding a new topic to our meeting programme, we are pleased to introduce you to the area of “Low Voltage Direct Current” application.
In this context, "low voltage" covers voltages up to 1500 V. With the growing usage of renewable energy sources the use of DC is increasing in parallel. The power that is needed in short distances to the generator can be stored and utilized directly without AC transformation.
As in the beginning of the electric century, we now discuss the cornerstones of DC usage. This renaissance of DC is challenging several technical areas. Increasingly, manufacturers conclude to use DC in their products for energy efficiency reasons as well.
