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

his paper describes a vehicle mounted radiometric system consisting of an array of four antennas connected to broadband, high-speed recording hardware capable of locating the source of partial discharges (PD). The significant advantages of the system lie in its ease of application, not requiring any electrical plant interface, and its ability to monitor emissions from several items of plant simultaneously. The system has been widely used at transmission level.
