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

A preliminary frequency characterization of an optically-interrogated Rogowski coil designed for smart grid protection applications is presented in this paper. The investigation into the sensor performance carried out according to the requirements of the 5P protection class specified by the IEC 60044-8 standard revealed that the maximum permissible error is breached at the 4th harmonic for the prototype device. It is demonstrated through numerical simulations that by amending a number of parameters, such as the piezoelectric stack capacitance or the Rogowski coil resistance, the sensor performance can be improved and the class requirements readily satisfied. A refined design of the device is proposed accordingly.
