New DC Solutions for the Mission Critical Market

Sustainability, reliability, capital and operating expenses all drive the design and operation of today's mission-critical facilities, but the central focus remains squarely on the occupants' electrical requirements. Today's business and social challenges require new solutions for electricity generation and distribution, and direct current technology (DC) provides a path forward. Discounted many years ago, technology and process improvements have made DC solutions a viable and attractive option for many stakeholders. From the incorporation of micro-grids to decreased capital and operating expenditures, this session will detail how DC solutions can provide a safe, reliable and cost effective infrastructure both now and in the future.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the benefits of Direct Current (DC) power vs Alternating Current (AC) power
2. Analyze process improvements that make DC power a viable option
3. Understand mission-critical applications specific to DC power solutions
4. Discuss real-world applications of DC power
