Abstract: Developing country like India needs cost effective solution to meet the rising demand with environmental friendly power generation. Current power generation scenario of India is presented in this paper along with alternative resources available for fossil fuel free generation. As the potential of solar is high in India and end equipment usage also in DC, makes the DC microgrid more advantageous over AC microgrid at the low voltage end. In addition to this, fewer conversion stages in the DC grid makes substantial loss reduction in comparison to AC grid. Modified DC configurations are proposed along with their potentials in India. A comparison is made between AC home and DC home in terms of cost and power consumption for analysis. Performance of Type 1 structure is analyzed under different scenarios in RSCAD/EMTDC software environment. © 2015, IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Hosting by Elsevier Ltd.
