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.

This study addresses the problem of reactive power redispatch under bilateral power transactions. The proposed approach is to reduce active loss in a critical area, under the voltage collapse point of view, which is identified by the tangent vector technique. A methodology that uses an augmented load flow Jacobian is proposed to redispatch the reactive power and can be easily implemented in ordinary power flow programmes. Tests with the IEEE 14-bus test system and with a real Brazilian-107 bus system are carried out to illustrate the proposed approach. Results obtained by solving an optimal power flow problem are also presented for validation purposes.
