Current OS based
DC microgrids

The Current OS foundation promotes adoption, provides and further develops an OPEN standard system for Direct Current (DC) distribution to improve resilience, sustainability, and safety of energy distribution.

The Current OS Foundation develops an ecosystem of manufacturers of compatible products

The Current OS Foundation provides FREE access to IP under NON-DISCRIMINATORY terms to the electrical market actors : sources and loads manufacturers, design consultants and integrators, users and services providers.

The Current OS foundation works to ensure SAFETY and effectiveness of multi sources DC applications and identify the gaps in STANDARDS and work them out to reach CONSENSUS.

The protocol

The Current OS protocol for active DC microgrids focuses on congestion management, safety, resilience, and cybersecurity and does not require central real-time control. This Operating System is regarded by Schneider and Eaton as the proper basis for a global rollout of decentralized DC grids and can play a major role in the energy transition. Schneider and Eaton jointly decided to make this proven Operating System available to any product manufacturer around the globe, to secure compatibility of its product(s) with any DC microgrid running on the Current OS protocol. The open and independent Foundation was set up to make the necessary Intellectual Property available to any Adopter wishing to participate.
