The DC House, an ever improving project, uses only pure DC power which most renewable energy sources generate, from solar to wind power. The DC House and this project expect a donation of photovoltaic modules to supply a constant source of DC power. At the moment, the DC House desperately needs power sources because not only does the house have various loads unaccounted for, but the distribution system to determine proper power flow needs a redesign. The project chose to account for these issues by implementing a solar panel onto the DC House and a power distribution module to have the power available where it is needed. Several loads will be applied after the installation of the panel to test whether or not the desired amount of power supplies the appropriate load. This project converts solar power and various other DC Sources into DC electrical power and delivers power efficiently across several DC loads within the DC House.
