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.

    In this paper we report on recent investigations into the performance of an optically-interrogated Rogowski coil designed for power system protection applications. Preliminary evaluation of the pre-prototype device shows that the amplitude and phase errors at its rated current of 1 kA and at rated frequency are around 0.1 % and 0.1° respectively. Based on the experimental results it can be concluded that the proposed approach of Rogowski coils monitored passively by distributed optical sensors has the potential to ensure conformance with the 5P protection and 0.5 standard classes specified by IEC 60044-8, while introducing a host of benefits that result from the passive and dielectric nature of the interrogation technique.
