DC | The DC consortium


The DC consortium has set itself the goal of introducing DC technology into public spaces. As a luminaire manufacturer, Lightwell is responsible for the final link in this process, namely light. DC requires a fundamental technical adjustment. All previous processes are taken care of by diverse partners. All Lightwell fixtures are available in DC.

LIGHTWELL DC READY

AC-VERSUS-DC-

AC: Advantages and disadvantages
+ Transformers very efficient
+ Switches without transfer
+ Selectively secure
+ The whole world works with it
– Blindstroom
– Power factor
– A lot of loss with high power in transport
– Short-circuit capacities (especially with decentralized energy)

DC: Benefits
+ Reliable Powerline communication over the networks
+ Better monitoring of cables (preventive)
+ No short-circuit capacity
+ Less material (cables, cabinets)
+ Existing network: more power over existing cables
+ New network: thinner cables required
+ Fewer conversions, fewer sales losses
+ No reactive current: better meet network operator requirements
+ Better dimmable

DC | Technology to the public area


The DC-consortium has set the objective to introduce DC technology to the public area. Lightwell as a fixture manufacturer, is in charge of the final step in this process, being responsible for the light. DC technology requires a fundamental technical adjustment. All the upstream processes are done by various partners.

AC-VERSUS-DC-

AC: Advantages and disadvantages
+ Transformers are highly efficient
+ Switches without an overlap
+ Able to selectively fuse
+ The world operates on AC
– Reactive current
– Power factor
– Great loss during transport with high power
– Short-circuit power (especially with decentralised energy)

DC: Advantages
+ Trustworthy Powerline communication over networks
+ Improved monitoring of the cables
+ Not short-circuit power
+ Less material (cables, casing)
+ Existing grid: more power over existing cables
+ New grid: thinner cables needed
+ Fewer conversions, reduced conversion losses
+ No reactive power: better able to meet the requirements of grid, easily dimmable

AC-VERSUS-DC-

Alternating current (AC): advantages and disadvantages
+ Transformers are very efficient
+ Change without overlap
+ Capable of selectively fuse
+ The world is currently operating on AC power
– Reactive current
– Power factor
– High energy loss during transport under high voltage
– Short circuit power (especially with decentralized energy).

DC current: Advantages
+ Reliable line carrier current on networks
+ Improved cable monitoring
+ No short circuit power
+ Less material (cables, casing)
+ Existing network: more power over existing cables
+ New network: finer cables needed
+ Fewer conversions, reduced conversion loss
+ No reactive power: more compatibility with the network, easily variable
