AC Grid

Conventional AC Grid Architecture

  • Unidirectional flow of energy from power plant to consumer (producer-consumer architecture).
  • Nearly every electrical device needs a rectifier or a provided rectified voltage.
  • Recuperative energy mostly not used and is lost in local braking resistors.

Industrial Smart DC Grid Architecture

  • Open energy flow between all devices (prosumer architecture).
  • No losses in additional rectifiers of devices.
  • Almost complete reuse of recuperative energy within the DC grid.
  • Easy integration of energy storage and decentralised renewable energy sources.
