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

Low voltage direct current (LVDC) distribution systems have the potential to be considered as an enabler of increased penetration of distributed renewables, electric vehicles, and heat pump systems. They do however present significant challenges for understanding fault behaviour and effective protection systems. This paper presents these challenges, and investigates the effectiveness of using IEC61660 for the short-circuit characterisation of LVDC networks.
