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 novel methodology to simplify the transient modelling of distribution networks that include many single phase induction generators is presented in this paper. The methodology is based on the derivation of an aggregated model covering an area of network with dispersed generators connected. The proposed aggregated model improves upon other published works that have only considered generation being connected at one location. Furthermore, the validity of the aggregated model is demonstrated for several network fault transient case studies. These are also used to calculate the critical clearance times of induction generators in response to medium voltage network faults.
