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.

Abstract

The necessity of developing alternatives to fossil combustibles as energy sources is increasingly leading towards non-conventional, renewable and distributed generation systems. To manage the transition from the present centralized grid to the future active systems consisting of multiple bi-directional energy clients it is necessary to extend the measurement systems to LV grids. The overall objective of this work is to install real-time measuring devices at a few grid locations, and use distribution state estimation techniques to implement active network management techniques on an experimental 100-kVA micro-grid.
