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.

In this paper measurement results from a low voltage microgrid test facility are presented and analyzed using a black box modeling methodology based on Prony analysis. Several test cases are investigated with the microgrid operating in grid-connected and islanded mode, including step changes in loads and distributed generation units. The black-box modeling methodology is applied to the measurement results and can provide information considering the amplitude, the frequency and the damping of the oscillations appearing in the microgrid responses. Results show that the black-box model can represent with good accuracy the dynamic behavior of the microgrid
