An efficient appliance for low voltage DC house
Paper in proceedings, 2011
Kitchen appliances consume large amount of energy in residential houses. By using efficient appliances energy losses can be reduced. Most of the household appliances use DC internally except some appliances such as stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The refrigerator and stove is one of the high power consuming kitchen appliances and it consumes large amount of energy. This work investigated on energy efficient home appliance design to run on low DC voltage and the purpose is to reduce energy consumption and losses. A combined refrigerator stove unit is designed to run on low voltage DC. The system is simulated with Matlab / Simulink and finally a prototype is built to analyze the performance. © 2011 IEEE.
