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.

The wide scale deployment and utilization of demand side management for the provision of frequency balancing service provision is hindered by the lack of proof of performance evaluation of such mechanisms. In this paper, the pre-qualification testing approaches for performance evaluation of frequency balancing service provision by highly distributed demand portfolio are discussed. Preliminary experimental results and challenges that arise of the pre-qualification tests conducted on a highly distributed flexible resource portfolio being managed by a multi-agent based demand side management technology are presented and the need for expansion of present day testing procedures discussed.
