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

Due to the large and increasing penetration of wind power around the world, accurate power production forecasts are required to manage power systems and wind power plants. In this paper we propose an ensemble of particle swarm optimised filtering technique for 1-hour-ahead prediction of hourly mean wind speed and direction. The performance of the new method is assessed by testing it on data from 13 locations around the UK where it performs comparably to linear techniques but is able to provide significant improvement at a subset of locations.
