Diversified Technologies introduces renewable energy distribution system

Bedford, Mass., May 19, 2011 — Diversified Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new micro-grid power distribution system for the simple integration of wind and solar power generators.

The system transmits DC power along a cable suitable for up to 1 MW power transfer. According to the firm, this new power distribution system offers a link cost as low as $1.00 per watt, depending upon configuration.

The PowerMod Micro-Grid Power Distribution System features direct solid-state switching and includes a DC power supply, DC cable and down converter for providing AC or DC power at the load end point.

Eliminating the limits of AC point-to-point installation, a generator or load can be placed any-where along the cable, which is suitable for up to 1 MW power transfer from these renewable energy sources.

Providing constant 10 kV DC transmission at up to hundreds of kilometers for wind turbines and solar power generators, the PowerMod Micro-Grid Power Distribution System uses PowerMod High Voltage Solid-State Switch Modules that provide over 1-million hour predicted reliability per MIL-HDBK-217F.

Diversified Technologies, Inc. is the developer and marketer of the PowerMod line of high voltage, high power pulse modulators, DC power supplies and control systems.
