Hybrid Electricity Distribution System

Hybrid Electricity Distribution System

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have recently designed a new distribution system that would not only reduce electricity prices by over 5% but also improve service reliability. The new design involves integration of two types of electric current – direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) – that power most homes, industries, and even electric vehicles. The research team found that they could leverage efficiencies by designing a system
