This paper proposes the use of a common DC link in residential buildings to allow customers to inject their surplus power that otherwise would be limited due to AC power quality violation. The surplus power can easily be transferred to other phases and feeders through common DC link in order to maintain the balance between generated power and load. PSCAD-EMTDC platform is used to simulate and study the proposed approach. This paper suggests that this structure can be a pathway to the future DC power systems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
