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

DC microgrid operation with variable sources is studied in this paper. A 3-level hierarchical DC voltage control is proposed which corresponds to grid connected operation, islanding operation, and load shedding/generation curtailment operation. The system operational status is verified according to voltage levels and corresponding control strategies are used according to voltage levels to secure system stability. A 4-terminal prototype microgrid comprising a grid connected VSC, a wind generator, an energy storage system, and DC loads is established to demonstrate the excellent operation performance of the proposed control system during various operating conditions such as load step, islanding, grid reconnection, and load shedding.
