Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Assessment and recommendations for the modelling of faults within power electronics based power systems

Norman, P. and Dudgeon, G. and McDonald, J.R. (2004) Assessment and recommendations for the modelling of faults within power electronics based power systems. In: 9th IEEE Workshop on Computers in Power Electronics, 2004-08-15 - 2004-08-18.

In recent years, power electronics have become a key enabling technology within electrical distribution networks, supporting the use of many other novel technologies. They also have a considerable impact though, on the configuration and operation of the electrical networks. Accurate simulations are hence required to aid the development and understanding of these networks. However, simulations using switched power electronics models can be very time consuming, and most power electronics modeling simplification techniques fail to give accurate results for specific systems-level studies. New model simplification methods must be developed in order to facilitate accurate and time efficient systems level simulations.
