This paper proposes a power electronic interface that enables localized energy management. The proposed interface, named as Active Power Distribution Nodes (APDNs), not only controls power flow and power the load during complete power loss, but also performs as a power buffer to handle instantaneous power imbalance between sources and loads. Power flow control is performed by power electronic interface, and the power buffer function is implemented by integrating energy storage within the… Expand
