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

A stability and dynamic assessment method is proposed for converter interfaced DC networks. With the current loop modeled as a 1st order delay, an actively controlled DC terminal converter and its control can be modeled as a virtual impedance in S-domain. Terminal transfer functions can therefore be obtained using Thevenin's equivalent. Based on the modeling method, a case study concerning voltage variation suppression in a multi-terminal DC network is performed using root locus and open-loop margin analysis. The accuracy of the developed DC network model and its effectiveness for assessing system stability and dynamic performance is validated using circuit simulation in time domain.
