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

The TeDP concept has been presented as a possible solution to reduce aircraft emissions despite the continuing trend for increased air traffic. However, much of the benefit of this concept hinges on the reliable transfer of electrical power from the generators to the electrical motor driven propulsors. Protection and fault management of the electrical transmission and distribution network is crucial to ensure flight safety and to maintain the integrity of the electrical components on board. Therefore a robust fault management strategy is required. With consideration of the aerospace-specific application, the fault management strategy must be efficient, of minimal weight and be capable of a quick response to off-nominal conditions. This paper investigates how the TeDP architecture designs are likely to be driven by the development of appropriate fault management strategies.
