Owing to the acute energy shortage issue and the increasing energy demands of information and communication technology systems worldwide, the development of a DC microgrid that can utilize renewable energy sources, such as wind and photovoltaic power, has been accelerated. Therefore, power management for DC microgrid distributed systems is promoted to achieve high reliability and efficiency in power distribution systems. For industry and power transmission applications such as data centers, power management with the help of DC converters is highly recommended. In this paper, we propose a prototype of a power distribution system with a triple active bridge (TAB) converter for data centers in the DC microgrid. Moreover, we introduce a power management approach for a distribution system using the TAB converter. Finally, we perform simulations of the proposed configuration to verify the controllability of the circuit performance and the high reliability of the system. View Full-Text
