Abstract

Droop control is used for power management in DC grids. Based on the level of the DC grid
voltage, the amount of power regulated to or from the appliance is regulated such, that power
management is possible. The Universal 4 Leg is a laboratory setup for studying the functionality of
a grid manager for power management. It has four independent outputs that can be regulated with
pulse width modulation to control the power flow between the DC grid and for example, a
rechargeable battery, solar panel or any passive load like lighting or heating
