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.

Future wind energy high penetration levels in power systems require robust and practical control algorithms to protect the typical conventional system performance or even improve it. Constructing such feasible control methodologies requires practical, simplified and efficient dynamic simulators for several wind turbines types available in market. This paper offers a procedure to build a simulation tool for modern wind turbines. This simulation box is inspired from the GE 1.5 MW model built in the Simulink library. Three wind turbines types from the top and latest products of three different wind turbines industry tycoons are considered as case studies for the proposed methodology. MATLAB and Simulink are used as simulation environments for the presented experiments.
