    Abstract

    Direct current (DC) grids have potential to improve the energy efficiency of residential buildings but general guidelines and established practices are yet missing for the residential DC grid implementations. Thus, this paper studies potential customer grid topologies in lowvoltage DC (LVDC) grid and defines a customer interface for a DC customer. The defined interface together with the grid topologies help in understanding the different aspects of connecting a customer to an LVDC grid, which is the main outcome of the study.
