Category of Technology developed: Immediate Deployment
Stage of Development: Field Test
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
The LVDC architecture technology has been developed and tested successfully. The project has been deployed and commissioned at three sites. TRL Level 7

    Abstract:

Applications: we are surrounded by devices and equipment that internally operates on DC. We plug these devices into a typical AC outlet, but the AC is then converted to DC to operate the devices and equipment. The process of conversion is not 100 percentage efficient, and inherently wastes some energy. Examples of these devices are PCs, LED lights, televisions, mobile phones, and other electronic appliances. The solar PV systems and energy storage systems like batteries are also delivers energy in DC. All of these AC to DC conversions have losses. To address this problem, the LVDC architecture for residential environment has been developed and deployed with effective solar power aid.
Advantages: Through embracing the LVDC technology, we can achieve High efficiency Higher reliability and safety Easier integration to any local DC generation & energy storage No harmonic problems No synchronization problems No phase balance issues Fewer conversion stages Less copper needed

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
