Direct Current, Directly Coupled Microgrids

Nextek Power Systems
Detroit, Michigan, United States

Application Area:Smart/Micro Grid
Development Status:Commercial Product
Organization Type:Corporation
Executive Summary:We optimize a distribution system around direct current (DC) to achieve previously unattainable efficiencies of renewable energy sources (PV, wind, fuel cell, etc...) and energy storage devices. And we directly couple these to the majority of loads that now require DC to operate (Lights, HVAC, IT equip, etc.)
