Low voltage DC distribution system compared with 230 V AC
Paper i proceeding, 2011

In this work low voltage DC distribution systems for a home are investigated by evaluating the advantages and disadvantages to 230V systems. The aim of the work is to connect the systems with local generation such as solar cell, micro turbine and energy storages at the end user level. Data obtained from measurements of power consumption for different household appliances such as refrigerator, microwave oven, rice cooker, dish washer etc. have been used to evaluate the systems. The performance of the 230V AC system and the proposed low voltage DC system is analyzed by considering factors such as losses in the wire, internal loss of the device itself, investment cost for new wiring, energy consumption cost © 2011 IEEE.
