    Abstract :

    In the present world AC is used for its better transmitting capability but there is much of power conversion from AC to DC and vice versa has to be done. This increases utilization of devices such as rectifiers (AC to DC) and inverters (DC to AC).Thus demanding for more cost investment and also results in much of power losses. Since the most of electric appliances use DC power, it makes a practical proposal to study the usage of DC.Most of the renewable energy source such as solar, wind (motor) and fuel cell energy systems produce DC energy. It is practical to think of using DC. Thus conversion losses and investment can be reduced.By making the cluster of renewable energy sources and using it in the same location (not transmitting too far distances), DC can be used efficiently. In this project design of dc grid is made and simulated by using MATLAB software to conclude the practicality of using DC power by using renewable energy resources.
