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.

The testing of adaptive protection schemes is a problem that remains largely unaddressed. These schemes can be characterized by uncertainty in behavior due to the dynamic changes in their configuration to suit prevailing network conditions. This paper proposes a novel approach to formalizing this behavior using hybrid systems modeling. This unlocks the ability to verify the safety performance of the schemes using reachability analysis. In this paper, an adaptive setting selection logic for distance protection is verified for its safety, using reachability analysis, during changes in network conditions.
