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.

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grid concept has recently been introduced as the next step to the point-to-point HVDC links to maximise the benefits of more power flow share, and reduce the impact of renewables intermittency. However, the integration of DC grid within existing AC systems is complex and very challenging. The compatibility between the two systems under different operating conditions needs to be fully understood. This will require sophisticated models and analysis of their behaviour using powerful tools. This paper presents a representative dynamic model of a hybrid AC-DC gird, and investigates the transient and dynamic interaction between the AC and DC grids under different fault conditions. The model represents a reduced AC UK power system interfaced to a detailed four-terminal DC grid. The developed mode is built in Real Time Digital Simulation (RTDS) using dual time steps simulation techniques.
