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.

    Abstract

    An investigation into the performance of an optically-interrogated Rogowski coil over temperatures up to 80 °C is presented. Preliminary thermal tests reveal that the sensor response is temperature-dependent and the measurement errors are increased at higher temperatures. Compensation of temperature effects is, therefore, necessary in order for the sensors to meet the requirements of protection and metering classes specified by relevant IEC standards over the considered operating temperature range. This can, however, only be achieved when the utilised sensor interrogator is adapted to ensure sufficient resolution and accuracy from a generally low-output transducer. As such, the design of a new multiplexing, interferometric interrogation platform is also proposed in this paper.
