380V HVDC in Commercial Buildings and Offices

Presenter: Dipl.-Ing. Bernd Wunder, Project leader LV-DC Grids, Fraunhofer IISB (DCC+G)
Moderated by: Stephen Oliver, VP VI Chip Product Line
Buildings consume 40% of Europe‘s energy. Over 50% of energy use in commercial buildings is for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting. The European Commission has decided that, from 2020, all new construction must consume net-zero-energy. This will only be possible using integrated renewable energy sources. Direct current (DC) grids in buildings can increase efficiency of electricity distribution and equipment by 5% and boost solar power system efficiency by 7%. The ENIAC JU project DCC+G is developing energy-efficient, integrated DC energy distribution based on advanced semiconductor power technologies.
Topics covered include:
  Benefits of HVDC and design approaches in commercial buildings
  A comparison of 380 VDC vs. 3-phase 400 VAC systems
  How HVDC can achieve 5% energy savings
in commercial buildings and offices
  Examples of HVDC equipment that is enabling the transition
