Abstract

In recent years, evidence has suggested that the global energy system is on the verge of a drastic revolution. The evolutionary development in power electronic technologies, the emergence of high-performance energy storage devices, and the ever-increasing penetration of renewable energy sources (RESs) are commonly recognized as the major driving forces of the revolution. The explosion in consumer electronics is also powering this change. In this context, dc power distribution technologies have made a comeback and keep gaining a commendable increase in research interest and industrial applications. In addition, the concept of flexible and smart distribution has also been proposed, which tends to exploit distributed generation and pack together the distributed RESs and local electrical loads as an independent and self-sustainable entity, namely a microgrid. At present, research in the area of dc microgrids has investigated and developed a series of advanced methods in control, management, and objective-oriented optimization that would establish the technical interface enabling future applications in multiple industrial areas, such as smart buildings, electric vehicles, aerospace/aircraft power systems, and maritime power systems.
