Abstract

In this paper, the results of the energy efficiency and power loss measurements of a 16 kVA customer-end inverter (CEI) unit are analyzed. The CEI is part of the low-voltage dc (LVDC) distribution network. The efficiency of the CEI power conversion significantly affects the energy efficiency of the LVDC distribution network and the electricity supply chain. The efficiency of the CEI and its components is measured by applying calorimetric and electrical input-output methods. The power loss measurement results are analyzed, and the power loss mechanisms are described. The efficiency optimization goals are discussed and set.
