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

The objective of this report is to layout the options for coupling demand to distributed generation (DG) under the Accelerating Renewable Connection (ARC) project. The report covers renewable distributed generators with connection agreements lower than the installed generation capacity (export limited firm connections) as well as distributed generators connected with non-firm connection agreements, both managed under an Active Network Management (ANM) scheme. The objective is to highlight ways in which demand can participated in providing flexibility for the benefit of DG that would otherwise be curtailed.
