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

A system has been developed for the detection of super-high-frequency (SHF) partial discharge (PD) at frequencies up to 6 GHz. The system consists of three antennas for capturing PDs and a fast digital oscilloscope for sampling data. One of the antennas is a disk-cone antenna with frequency range below 710 MHz. The other two half TEM horn antennas have been designed and constructed for the frequency range 716 MHz - 5 GHz. To extend the frequency range up to 6 GHz, a methodology has been developed by compensating amplitude-response to frequency-magnitude. The compensation is realised by using multilayer feed-forward neural networks to equalise on amplitude-response. A direct sampling method is used to log the captured PD data. This PD detection system has been implemented to measure PDs at a 400 kV electrical substation (Strathaven, Scottish Power Ltd).
