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.

This paper takes a systematic view on the control and protection of medium power DC networks in an active distribution power system considering fault current limiting, system control and converter design. Reduced terminal capacitance and extra DC impedance are used to limit DC fault current and reduce the required converter current rating for medium power DC networks. An adaptive DC power stabilizer is proposed to alleviate possible system instability brought by the fault current limiting settings in the presence of constant power load. The effect of the current limiting method and the proposed stabilizer on DC fault current and stability enhancement are validated by simulation studies using a simple two-converter DC network and a multi-terminal DC network in an active distribution power system
