Multi-function DC protection scheme for an LVDC smart distribution network

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Low voltage direct current (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.
