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.

Operation of the power grid is currently undergoing fundamental and significant changes due to implementation of new technologies and attempts to reduce impact on environment, as well as improve security of supply by diversifying generation mix. This paper outlines a price incentive scheduling tool for consumer-based active demand side management that can prove flexibility necessary for operation of systems with high levels of renewable generation penetration. The scheduling tool helps consumers rescheduling the home appliances corresponding to different pricing notifications based on their energy consumption preferences. The analysis of individual household behaviours is carried out for two price scenarios: (i) predefined electricity price tariff and (ii) forecast real time pricing (RTP) developed on the basis of time series analysis.
