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 proposes a unified AC chopper topology that can generate both non-inverting and inverting AC voltages. It is therefore suitable for compensating utility voltage sag-swell in domestic consumer and industry infeeds. The proposed converter is able to save on the passive device footprint and improve dynamic performance compared to other similar candidates. The topology derivation, operating principle and performance evaluation are analysed in this paper. Simulation results are presented to assess the proposed scheme with in-phase and out-phase AC voltages generated from a fixed grid input to compensate the voltage sag-swell disturbances in the utility.
