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.

As the power grid networks become more granulated and smarter, their operation and control are becoming even more challenging due to the size of the underling mathematical problems that need to be solved in various power systems analysis tools. This means that there is a need for the modification of existing algorithms to adapt to the new environment. As the optimal power flow (OPF) presents one of the main tools used in power system operation and control, and the Interior Point Method (IPM) is becoming one of the most frequently used OPF solution algorithm, this poster describes ways in which High Performance Computing (HPC) can be used to improve the performances of the IPM application to the OPF.
