Low voltage direct current (LVDC) distribution systems have significant potential to support the future realisation of smart grids. They do however present significant protection challenges that existing schemes based on DC fuses and electro-mechanical circuit breakers (EMCBs) cannot manage due to slow device performance. This research presents these challenges, and investigates the effectiveness of using existing LV protection options for protecting an LVDC last mile.
