Power quality is becoming more and more important for different kind of users. In particular, for industrial customers it represents a key factor for the productiveness and the efficiency. Also, the wide diffusion of electronic loads implies a spread use of power electronics. In this scenario, DC distribution networks are a suitable solution for solving problems of power quality both for the customer and for the supplier. In the paper, the opportunity of using a DC distribution network inside a woodworking plant is analyzed. A network configuration and a control strategy are proposed and verified by means of numerical simulations and experimental tests.
