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

To date, the skin effect has not been considered in the analysis of network fault response and the design of protection systems for DC networks. However, the naturally high resonant frequencies of some modern marine and aerospace electrical networks under electrical fault conditions suggest that skin effect should be investigated more closely. The studies reported in this paper compare the system fault response for both a conventional circuit model and a model incorporating the skin effect. The results show a noticeable difference, demonstrating that in some cases the skin effect should be considered for studies of this nature. The paper builds upon these findings by investigating the impact on protection system operation, making recommendations for associated modelling and simulation practices.
