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

This paper focuses on the transmission system options for connection of offshore wind farms and investigates the advantages and disadvantages of proposed concepts in order to draw a conclusion regarding their suitability for connection in the electricity system. Then, the most appropriate solution is implemented in Matlab/Simulink to show its benefits. For this purpose, 5 wind farms are connected to an offshore station and their power output is transferred onshore via a point – to – point DC link. Additionally a novel proposal of DC voltage control is included in the model to simulate the behaviour of the system when faults occur in the electricity grid.
