Abstract


Abstract Attempting to reduce energy losses, as well as rapid resource demands rise has been a problem worldwide in recent years. To solve this problem, Smart Power is designed to make an efficient DC Power System. Smart Power scheme has achieved a reduction of cost in the DC power system and also increased efficiency of the overall power system. In Smart Power, in place of a synchronous generator, a high-efficiency interior permanent magnet (IPM) generator is used. To increase efficiency and reduce initial cost, Smart Power uses Rectifier, Boost converters, DC transmission line, Buck converter, and Distributed inverters. Smart Power transmits in the DC power up to Energy meter, after that there will be an inverter that will convert DC power into AC power. In the future, there will be all residential and industrial area having solar PV system as well as windmill. Conventional power system may have a problem to synchronize with a solar PV system and also, AC power cannot be stored in battery. In the Smart Power system, there will be an easier way to synchronize the renewable energy sources and nonrenewable energy sources. In the Smart Power system, there will only one condition to be satisfied for the synchronization of two-line which is the same voltage level.
