High-voltage DC distribution is key to increased system efficiency and renewable-energy opportunities

January 24, 2014 // By Stephen Oliver, Vicor
The pressure throughout the energy supply chain to deliver electrical power more efficiently is intense and growing, particularly in high load applications such as datacenters. The latest white paper from Vicor highlights how a transition to 400 VDC for power transmission and conversion offers tangible and significant benefits for both sourcing options and system performance. And provides a significant response to initiatives for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, lowering energy consumption and increasing use of renewable energy sources.
