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

An investigation into the performance of an optically-interrogated Rogowski coil over temperatures up to 80 °C is presented. Preliminary thermal tests reveal that the sensor response is temperature-dependent and the measurement errors are increased at higher temperatures. Compensation of temperature effects is, therefore, necessary in order for the sensors to meet the requirements of protection and metering classes specified by relevant IEC standards over the considered operating temperature range. This can, however, only be achieved when the utilised sensor interrogator is adapted to ensure sufficient resolution and accuracy from a generally low-output transducer. As such, the design of a new multiplexing, interferometric interrogation platform is also proposed in this paper.
