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

With more sources of monitoring coming on-line, manual analysis of the raw data becomes increasingly infeasible. Data analytics can provide the toolset for automated decision support for utility engineers, helping to unlock the potential of network data. This chapter will focus on when and how data analytics can support transmission and distribution engineers in various job functions. Some particular applications are considered first, highlighting what role analytics can play and how this benefits the utility. Then, the enabling technologies for data analytics are discussed, exploring the links with fields such as data science and Big Data. Finally, the chapter concludes with various case studies of transmission and distribution data analytics in practice, and draws out some key design and deployment challenges overcome in each case.
