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

This paper describes the current progress of the project developing a satellite based Loss-of-Mains (LOM) protection based on accumulated voltage phase angle difference (VPAD). In the initial stage of the laboratory trial, relay prototype in Opal-RT/RT-lab, test network modelled in RTDS/RSCAD and a commercial SEL-PMU are interconnected to establish a hardware-in-the-loop test platform. With a series of tests carefully designed for stability and sensitivity assessment, considering various generator control and load representations, the new protection scheme has been proved to have both enhanced stability and sensitivity over the existing passive LOM methods.
