Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

A series-LCR circuit is one of the simplest circuits capable of exhibiting ferroresonance. A numerical simulation of such a circuit is constructed using the Preisach model of hysteresis to accurately represent the non-linear magnetic response of the inductor. Numerical data obtained from this simulation shows good agreement when compared to data from a laboratory-built experimental circuit. A bifurcation diagram is constructed to illustrate the coexistence of multiple solutions and the existence of period doubling.
