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

The growth in recent years of radio services and the increasing use of digitally encoded broadcast services which, due to their high compression rates, are highly susceptible to impulsive type interference caused by power system related effects has placed pressure on the radio frequency spectrum. Consequently, the impact of electromagnetic interference caused by high voltage equipment such as partial discharges and breaker operation transients is becoming more of an issue. This paper describes a system for the location of discharge sources based on the reception of impulsive radio frequency interference radiated from the vicinity of the site. The authors discuss its application to the location of discharge sources close to a domestic residence situated under a 132 kV overhead line
