Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

An experimental assessment of the impact of the electromagnetic environment of a 400 kV substation on the performance of ZigBee equipment is described. The experimental assessment includes a pragmatic field trial and a laboratory test. The laboratory test, in which all external noise and interference are excluded, is used as a control. A simple set of metrics are used to compare the performance of ZigBee equipment deployed in the substation with that deployed in a controlled laboratory environment. The results based on more than 1.6 Gbit of transmitted data show no significant adverse impact of the substation electromagnetic environment on the performance of ZigBee equipment.
