Abstract

This report presents the main results of the two-year research project 'Power electronics in electricity distribution, part 2/2'. The main focus of the project was the development of the low voltage DC electricity distribution system by continuing the work of the earlier 'Power electronics in electricity distribution, part 1/2' project. According to the research, the low voltage DC distribution system based on wide exploitation of power electronic converters is a potential technical alternative for the electricity distribution networks of future. The decreasing prices of converter technology, increase of the power transmission capacity of low voltage networks and improvement of the quality of network service received by the electricity end users support the implementation of the DC electricity distribution. In addition, the applied converter technology offers new opportunities for network management and electricity markets. However, the technology is not yet mature for wide commercialisation. Challenges in the technology are, for instance, the energy efficiency and the life-cycle costs of converters and electrical safety of versatile system configurations in different operating situations. Despite of the challenges, there is remarkable number of feasible and safe applications even for the present-day DC technology both in the public distribution networks and in the internal electric  More>>
