Rhode Island Patent of the Month – December 2023

VoltServer Inc., a sparklight in the world of electricity distribution, has recently been granted a patent for their novel digital power distribution system. Most existing solutions are prone to short circuits and resistance and pose a safety risk to those who improperly contact the power line.

At the heart of VoltServer’s invention lies a novel approach to electrical power transfer, one that promises efficiency, safety, and adaptability. Delving into the technical details reveals a sophisticated system that utilizes cutting-edge technology to transmit power across networks with unprecedented precision. What sets this invention apart is its ability to deliver electrical power in a controlled and secure manner, mitigating the risks associated with traditional power distribution methods.

The digital power distribution system uses a non-linear load configured to draw current from the load terminals. If this drops below a non-zero voltage threshold, the capacitance for energy storage is reduced and discharged to create a safe space and protect those who may have mistakenly contacted the line.

This solution provides a more rapid response to fault lines and inappropriate line contacts, reducing the time between contact and power down. Between greater safety and greater efficiency, this solution is set to redefine energy distribution.
