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 heterogeneity of domestic loads presents Distribution Network Operators with operational uncertainties which may become problematic as generation capacity shrinks and network infrastructure ages. High resolution meter advances recorded by increasingly ubiquitous Smart Meters can be seen as representing base loads along with aggregations of multiple domestic appliances – in this letter, a Bayesian formulation of the finite mixture probability distribution is employed to enumerate and capture generalizations of these, from which compact representations of domestic load profiles can be formed.
