Direct Current in the Low-Voltage Range Standardization Roadmap

The objective of the German Direct Current in the Low-Voltage Range Standardization Roadmap is to combine the technical state-of-the-art and recommendations for action and requirements to meet the need for solutions for the use of direct current systems.

Core topics of the standardization roadmap

New and innovative applications in the field of energy efficiency and electromobility require new solutions for the use of direct current systems. This also applies to building installations in which a direct current infrastructure could be implemented alongside the alternating voltage network to, for instance, decrease losses in individual power supply units. This is precisely where the German Direct Current in the Low-Voltage Range Standardization Roadmap starts.

The core and cross-sectional topics of the Direct Current in the Low-Voltage Range Standardization Roadmap include economic and legal framework conditions, safety, protection concepts and network structures. The topic of system topologies is also addressed in more detail and use cases are described. Chapters on operating materials and components round out the document’s content.

Finally, the current state of standardization and the existing standardization gaps are presented and addressed in the Direct Current in the Low-Voltage Range Standardization Roadmap to offer users and any interested parties orientation in this field.

About the objective and significance of the standardization roadmap

The objective of standardization roadmaps is to inform the stakeholders in the respective subject area of important basic requirements and assist them in meeting them. To achieve this, standardization roadmaps provide an overview of the respective technology topic, in this case direct current in the low-voltage range, and the related standardization landscape and its organizational and content-related further development.

For direct current in the low-voltage range, standardization roadmaps also allow for the systematic processing of convergent technologies (cross-committee complex topics) and act as a basis for discussion and exchange between the experts from various domains (e.g. automotive, IT, energy). They thus provide for better understanding because they provide all of the participants the same foundation and offer new committee members a subject-related introduction.

Particularly with respect to important subject areas like direct current in the low-voltage range, standardization roadmaps emphasizes the need for early development and the significance of the topic of full consensus standardization.

Energy

It is just a big a topic in everyday conversation and societal discourse as it is at DKE: everyone is talking about energy. Our standardization experts don’t just provide their knowledge to make the supply and distribution of energy “smart” and decentralized in the future, they also make an equally large contribution toward the operation of electrical systems and the wide-scale distribution of renewable energies.
