Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Research conducted at the University of Bath has shown remote partial discharge detection via wideband radiometric measurements to be a feasible possibility, capable of challenging many well established electric methods. This paper will describe how frequency domain characterization techniques based on the Welch and MUSIC algorithms can produce consistent results capable of distinguishing between discharges in air, oil and plant switching operations.
