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 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.
