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.

Restructuring in network industries, high penetration of market players and increased demand, it is a necessary requirement to provide mains supply with controlled quality parameters such as harmonic distortion and voltage limits. To achieve this power systems owner needs to put restrictions on the connected loads which pollutes the power quality. This can be achieved using synchronised monitoring across various substations in the power systems followed by power quality improvement. Proposed in this paper is centralised power quality diagnostic system which uses global time reference with the aid of global positioning system (GPS) .
