Samenvatting

As the impact of our actions on the climate become more and more clear and environmental awareness is rising, the quest for increasing efficiency and lower environmental impact becomes very important. Efficiency is particularly important in the field of electricity consumption, which keeps on rising as electrification of our transportation, houses, offices and more continues worldwide. These loads and sustainable sources have one thing in common: Direct Current. To successfully respond to this growing usage of direct current (DC) systems it is important to provoke an evolution in the provision of DC infrastructure.

The goal of this paper is to create a methodology to calculate and evaluate the power losses in both traditional AC grids and DC microgrids. This is done through simulation models made by Caspoc, a software for modeling and simulating physical systems in analog/power electronics, electric power generation/conversion/distribution and mechatronics. The results are compared on the quantifiable indicator: energy savings. The impact of cable losses and different converters is calculated through the simulation.

This methodology and simulation strategy can be the basis for the optimal grid design in other infrastructures and cases. The model will be validated with intensive tests of household equipment in a later stage of the project, this paper focuses on the model and methodology itself.
