Abstract: Meeting the ever-increasing level of energy demands from residential, commercial and industrial consumers is not a trivial task. To satisfy these requirements, it is imperative to plan and design the future energy generation and distribution networks to be extremely efficient so that generated energy is utilized to its fullest extent. In this regard, direct current(DC) based nano-grids which are powered by Photovoltaic (PV) cells are proposed along with more bias towards DC mode consumption. In addition to that, paradigm-shifting changes in manufacturing industry can be initiated using this proposed model. This article covers the models, advantages and challenges of such approach.
Keywords: DC Nano-grid, Photovoltaic Cell, Energy Efficiency, Efficient Manufacturing.
Scope of the Article: Manufacturing IoT
