Taufik's 'DC House' Featured in EE Times

October 15, 2014

EE Times reports that amid the rise of solar microgrids in the developing world, a “DC House” proposed by Cal Poly electrical engineering professor Taufik will be right at home. The design uses only direct current produced by the solar panels, eliminating the wasted energy of converting to and from alternating current. Taufik spoke at the recent IEEE Global Humanitarian Conference, held Oct. 10-13 in San Jose, Calif.
