Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Distribution system planning in focus

Abstract

Our interest in the theory and practicalities of distribution system planning have been aroused by recent discussions with distribution network operators in the U.K. and by more general work on the requirements for power system planning methodologies for the twenty-first century. Specific note is made of distributed generation, which presents substantial challenges for distribution system planners and has been the focus for a study of the changing needs of distribution planning.
