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.

This paper presents a modular transient modelling tool which provides model-based support for the design and technology selection within future MEE and MEA electrical systems. The developed tool is a Matlab/Simulink library consisting of functional sub-system units, which can be rapidly integrated to build complex system architecture models. The paper focusses on the ability of the tool to assess the thermally-defined fault withstand capability of power electronic converters in order to inform on technology trades and derive the operating requirements of the associated power system protection/fault management devices.
