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.

Loads that have a disproportionate impact on the components and structure of a wind turbine can be induced by anomalies in the wind-field. For example, large unbalanced rotor loads could arise from blades sweeping through low level jets. The work presented in this paper proposes a novel anomaly detection scheme. Simulation results are presented demonstrating that it can be used to aid in the early detection of various anomalous conditions, such as mass imbalance, extreme wind shear and dynamic inflow, thereby allowing the wind turbine controllers to take appropriate diagnostic action to cope with such conditions.
