High Voltage DC (HVDC) Distribution and Power Conversion

space

Mainstream Industry Adoption

 

From datacenters and alternative energy micro-grids, to aircraft and hybrid vehicles, high voltage DC power distribution and conversion enables major advances in application performance while reducing installation and running costs. In applications ranging from 270 V
to 800 V, recent industry standards combined with new power distribution, control and conversion solutions mean mainstream industry adoption of HVDC.
