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

Voltage ranking is an important part of power system security assessment. The commonly used performance index method with a low exponent could suffer from masking effects. This paper proposes a generic compensation factor to reduce the masking problem. An adaptive fuzzy system is used for the calculation of the generic compensation factor. A simplification of the defuzzification process is proposed for improvement of computational efficiency. Convergence analysis shows that values calculated by the adaptive fuzzy system are good approximations. The parameters would only need to be calculated offline once. They can then be applied to various systems for voltage ranking applications. To save computational efforts further, a hybrid strategy is introduced to reduce the number of fuzzy rules. A good ranking method needs an efficient method to derive voltage deviations. Besides the commonly used 1P-1Q calculation method, an alternative method is used for the calculation of voltage deviations. A new version of the ranking assessment diagram is proposed for the presentation of ranking results. Ranking results from two test power systems have been presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed strategy.
