Approximately 1.6 billion people currently live without electricity. The only sensible solution to their energy problems is the use of renewable energy in an off-grid, autonomous home which is powered directly by direct current, rather than alternating current coming from a power line, which probably cannot be found nearby. The purpose of this project is to construct a prototype of the DC House. More specifically, this project focuses on the development and construction of the power distribution system of the DC House. The system will be put in place starting from the source side model down to the load side modeling of the DC House. The result of this project serves as proof of concept or demonstration of the DC House system.
