Experimental validation of an advanced DC protection scheme for enabling an LVDC last mile distribution network

Abstract

LVDC distribution systems have the potential to support future realisation of smart grids functionality. They do however present significant protection challenges that existing schemes based on DC fuses and conventional circuit breakers cannot manage due to slow device performance. Therefore, this research introduces an advanced protection scheme that addresses the outstanding challenges facing realisation of last mile DC distribution. The developed scheme has been validated using experimental testing.
