Medium Voltage DC (MVDC) is a key word which covers a wide area of applications, from well-known 3 kV DC railway network via DC distribution networks within vehicles/vessels or cities, via DC collection grids to even MVDC transmission. From the perspective of a supplier of solutions based on power electronic converters, the paper gives a survey of MVDC applications, technical solutions, required key components, the state-of-the-art solutions and those expected to be available soon. Further, considerations on the advantages and disadvantages of using MVDC in the mentioned applications are included.
