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

Finite element modal analysis is used to predict the frequency spectrum of switching emissions from gas insulated substation switchgear. Field results indicate that the arc can be modeled as an impulsive current source. Fields of resonant modes matching the fields emitted by the arc facilitate the excitement of these modes and shape the spectrum of the emissions. The data provided by the model can be used to identify signal sources and complement a time domain based on-line circuit breaker contact timing system.
