Abstract

In this paper DC-microgrid architecture with
Renewable Energy Resources is described. Microgrid is a part of
distribution network embedding multiple distributed generation
systems (mostly non-conventional renewable energy sources like
wind turbine, photovoltaic panels etc.) and storage systems with
local loads, which can be disconnected from the upstream
network under emergency conditions or as planned. Microgrid is
defined as a cluster of distributed generation sources, distributed
storage devices and distributed loads that operate so as to
improve the reliability and quality of the local power supply and
of the power system in a controlled manner. The present power
system is established on AC that provide supply to the AC power
machine, but the new on-going revolution in power electronics
and many smart devices are coming in the list of domestic goods,
which are powered by DC. To provide DC, AC supply should be
rectified and regulated which produce losses. Instead of
rectification a new independent DC microgrid architecture is
designed to which the DC load can be connected. In this review
paper, DC microgrid architecture can be independently powered
by renewable energy resources which can directly generate DC
power. This paper also presents challenges in integration of
renewable energy sources and their solution of integrating
renewable energy sources utilization.
