Video resources for LV and ELV d.c. power distribution

After the success of the Code of Practice for Low and Extra Low Voltage Direct Current Power Distribution in Buildings, we ran a series of events on the subject of LV and ELV d.c. power distribution. Videos from these events are available on an IET.tv subscription only, however, Wiring Matters has collaborated with IET.tv to make one video from each event free to view.

The need for LV and ELV d.c. power distribution is growing to support, for example:

  • solar PV installations and energy storage
  • energy efficient installations (particularly given that a new section on energy efficiency will be included in the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations)
  • the rise in popularity of d.c. power distribution networks in buildings, such as for lighting installations
  • technological breakthroughs that make it easier to transmit d.c. over long distances and
  • to allow for the ever-growing consumption of more and more products and equipment that require d.c. to operate.

Blane Judd discusses the growing significance of low and extra-low voltage d.c. power distribution in buildings in the Summer 2015 issue of Wiring Matters.
