Application: DC Metering

DC circuits are rising in prominence with the increase in renewable energy applications. DC metering is integral in systems like solar energy panels, wind turbines, light rail transit, and more.




Application
Overview

DC Metering for Renewable Energy Systems like Solar Arrays, Wind Turbines, Vehicle Charging Stations

DC circuits are becoming more prevalent through increases in renewable energy applications, and microgrid technology. With the proliferation of DC circuits, the need for capable DC metering technology has come to the fore. DC metering systems now feature many of the key features found in AC metering including data logging and a wealth of communication protocols.

Some of the greatest demand for DC metering has been found in renewable energy applications like solar energy panels metering, wind turbines, electric vehicle charging stations and more. Monitoring these applications allows for energy production before conversion, or tracking amount lost before conversion, measuring efficiencies, and tracking performance.

Accuenergy offers full feature DC metering solutions including the AcuDC 240 series. Offering features including ampere hour monitoring and data logging, the AcuDC is able to track the performance of DC systems over multiple parameters.
