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

Active Network Management (ANM) schemes are providing the communications and control infrastructure to allow the integration of energy storage and flexible demand in distribution networks. These technologies can be characterised as intertemporal in that their operation at different points in time is linked. This paper provides a discussion of the issues created when optimising an ANM scheme containing intertemporal energy technologies. A technique called Dynamic Optimal Power Flow is discussed and a case study is presented. The requirement to use forecasts of renewable energy resources such as wind power is discussed together with the issues that this creates.
