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

Sensors operating in the ultra-high frequency (UHF) band have been used to detect internal discharges during site testing of a 1000 MVA oil-filled transformer. The transformer was operated at voltages exceeding normal levels by up to 15%. Two discharge sources were detected at both sensors using UHF test equipment. Discharge signals are analyzed in phase-resolved form and time-of-flight measurements are used to provide further information regarding their origin. The results indicate that the URF method could prove very effective for transformer testing and on-line PD monitoring.
