Our engagement in DC technology is motivated by drive controllers with DC link. Since the introduction of digital power converters, we have won a lot of experience with local DC bus systems in various applications. In the DC industry projects we supported the idea to expand the DC link of drives to a DC microgrid in the factory – using the star point of the AC transformer as grounding reference and using non-shielded cables or busbars for distribution. We are one of the founding members of ODCA because openness and collaboration are key facts for the roll-out of this new technology. We actively support the standardization process and upcoming installations, since DC is an important building block for the all-electric society.
