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, academics and research centers, 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 Set of Rules

The Current/OS Set of Rules for active DC microgrids focuses on congestion management, safety, resilience, and cybersecurity and does not require central real-time control. This Operated System is regarded by ABB, Eaton and Schneider Electric as the proper basis for a global rollout of decentralized DC grids and can play a major role in the energy transition. ABB, Eaton and Schneider Electric jointly decided to make this proven "Operated 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 Partner wishing to participate.
