Low-Voltage Direct Current (LVDC) distribution network is a novel approach to the LV distribution. The system greatly differs from the AC solutions used today and therefore, a laboratory platform of the LVDC distribution system has to be implemented. The system is designed to provide testing and measuring platform for the LVDC distribution technology. This paper presents the implementation of the platform. The paper discusses the structure of the platform and presents some results of the studies in which the platform is involved. Also, the flaws of the system and their influence to the measurements and operation are discussed. Also, a real-network platform implementation is in progress and the future developments of the laboratory platform are covered in the end of the paper.
