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 increase of non-synchronous generation sources on a power network are changing the system dynamics and this can lead to problems with stability. One of the contributions to the change in system dynamics is the variation in system inertia. By approximating a traditional stability metric, the critical clearing time (CCT) in an energetic framework we conduct a parametric investigation of the effect of inertia on power system stability. A set of solid three phase to ground faults are considered on a small but not trivial power system, the two-machine infinite bus network. The performance of the approximated CCT is compared to the true CCT.
