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 identifies challenges presented in unified co-simulation of power and communication network. There is no main stream freely available simulator which combines both power and network capabilities. First, review of existing simulators of smart grid is presented. Then, co-simulator scheme is proposed. Finally, a basic prototype of co-simulation based on open-source power and communication network is presented. Test cases show that our proposed co-simulator has faster execution time compared to standalone simulations.
