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

Protection of an inverter dominated microgrid is always a great challenge, as inverters are well known for their insufficient contribution to the fault current, undermining the accuracy and viability of traditional overcurrent protection schemes. Based on the wide review of solutions developed in the past, this paper proposes a novel protection strategy, with the main protection method based on the time and polarity features of initial current travelling waves using mathematical morphology (MM) technology and backup protection strategy based on the rate of change of current. Simulation tests in PSCAD/EMTDC considering different fault resistances, fault positions and fault inception angles prove this protection approach to be sensitive and reliable.
