Design Considerations for Distributed DC Power Applications in traditional Telecommunication Facilities

Robert Burditt



The increasing power demand for transport equipment is stretching traditional DC (direct current) power distribution topologies beyond their ability to power the new loads economically. This trend in larger load sizes is leading to a renewed interest in a distributed form of DC Power architecture where the DC source is located closer to the load. Compact switch mode DC power plants and current battery technology have matured enough to embrace a fundamental shift in equipment deployment strategy and practices. For this reason, Telecommunication Service Providers (TSP) are looking for DC Power equipment and battery technology that supports this shift in traditional deployment.
