After decades of the traditional Distributed Grid, the microgrid are emerging as the new order on modern smart grids. However, due to the excessive use of DC to AC converters to allows the integration of renewable energy based on DC, as photovoltaic systems, researchers are now focus in studying the feasibility of implementing DC distribution on a given application, by involving DC microgrids in the future smart grids. These DC microgrids have control system advantages and their easy integration with IoT technology, makes it a real alternative in applications as future smart homes. This paper presents the simulation of a DC Microgrid and the designing and preliminary implementation of a benchtop DC microgrid.
