DC2018 – Industrial DC Grids


Notice: The event "DC2018 - Industrial DC Grids" on 12/13 November 2018 was called off. If you have already made hotel reservations for an accommodation in Detmold, please get in touch with Ms. Denise Hohenstein (view on the right). A new date will be communicated here.

Direct Current (DC) seems to be the key technology to integrate renewable energy resources into production processes.

To avoid complex energy transition in the production process, to enable simple energy exchange between energy sources and production plants and maschines, and to guarantee an optimised storage connection in the production process, DC offers an open approach to investigate energy efficient, flexible, highly available und sustainable technical approaches towards intelligent energy supply systems in industry.

DC2018 links the idea of live demonstration, networking and providing scientifical research results. Therefore, the event aims at

  • informing the middle class on demands of DC technology and integrate it into the development process,
  • presenting and discussing the status quo of device technology and grid management,
  • demonstrating DC prototypes on the exhibition space and
  • talking about future DC research as of 2019.
