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

We describe an optical system to monitor microscopic pre-breakdown events in liquid insulation. The system has successfully demonstrated its ability to predict high voltage breakdown in transformer oil. A simple theory based on a thermal lens build up between electrodes as a result of applied voltage is presented to explain the system operation and obtained measured results.
