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.

Low voltage direct current (LVDC) distribution systems have the potential to support future realisation of smart grids functionality. They do however present significant protection challenges that existing schemes based on DC fuses and conventional circuit breakers cannot manage due to slow device performance. Therefore, this research introduces an advanced protection scheme that addresses the outstanding challenges facing realisation of last mile DC distribution.
