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

Load flow is highly uncertain with the large-scale integration of wind power. It is unrealistic to adopt traditional deterministic load flow calculation for system planning and operation. A method is proposed in this study combining cumulants and Gram-Charlier expansion to calculate probabilistic load flow (PLF) of power system containing large-scale wind power. It has significantly reduced the computational time compared to Monte Carlo methods while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. The method was found quite suitable for the PLF calculation of power system with large-scale wind power injected.
