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

In this paper, the stability studies for different wind farm collection network topologies have been performed. As the wind farm becomes larger, the inter-array network becomes larger.so that the impedance of the overall system will be increased. This means that the inter-array configuration can impact the stability of system. The dynamic studies results presented in this paper show that the star collection network topology has the ability to be connected to weaker grid followed by radial, double sided and single side ring collection network topology.
