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

Although transmission systems are able to cover most of the areas in many countries, there are still some isolated areas such as rural counties and remote desert lands where grid power cannot be accessed. Therefore, a reliable and economical power supply scheme is required to solve the problem. One of them combines wind/solar power generation with the support of storage system. This paper is to give an overview of the optimization methodologies about the wind/solar stand-alone system supported by storage systems or integrating with other renewable or conventional power generation sources. It is shown that continued research and optimization methodology in this area are still in great need for performance improvement.
