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

This paper aims to describe methods to forecast wind speeds experienced around overhead lines (OHLs) in order to predict the wind cooling effect and thus the dynamic line ratings (DLRs) of OHLs. The wind speed at a particular OHL span is forecast through a kriging interpolation between the wind speed predictions produced by a vector auto-regressive (VAR) model for a limited number of weather stations at which observations have been obtained. A temporal de-trending method is used to ensure the stationarity of de-trended data from which model parameters are determined. A spatial de-trending method is adopted in a kriging model. The results show that the kriging model performs better than the inverse distance weighting (IDW) method and that the spatial de-trending makes the main contribution to the accuracy of interpolation. Furthermore, the VAR forecasting model is shown to give greater improvement over persistence than a simple auto-regressive (AR) model.
