Local DC Power Network
The energy sector is about to undergo a major transformation. In this paper, we discuss the best possible energy solution for a smart and green community. This paper focusses on the decentralized power generation, storage and distribution through photovoltaics and lithium batteries. It encompasses the need for local direct current (DC) power through the factors driving this change. The importance of local DC power in the surface transport sector is also established. Finally, we conclude with data bolstering our argument towards the paradigm shift in the power network.
