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

The paper presents a multi-terminal dc transmission system based on innovative modular multilevel converter as feasible approach to address the reliability and fault ride through capabilities concern of the multi-terminal dc system, in addition, to reduced construction cost and power losses in converters stations. To demonstrate the reliability and fault ride through capabilities of the proposed system, Fig. 1, several scenarios such as, power redirections in case of dc faults and system behaviour under symmetrical and asymmetrical faults in the ac sides are considered. The validity of the proposed multi-terminal dc transmission scheme is confirmed through intensive computer simulation in Matlab-Simulink environment
