Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Rapid increase of the transmission capacity and environmental limit of the power transmission passage have indispensably promoted development of the AC/DC hybrid transmission lines on the same tower, especially for UHV systems being established in China. Unfortunately, severe electromagnetic coupling effects will inevitably exist between the UHV AC and DC transmission lines built on the same tower. The generating mechanisms, as well as the computational methodology, of both the inductive and capacitive coupling effects within the hybrid transmission lines are elucidated in the paper, then an equivalent circuitry model is established as to analyze the induced overvoltage within the hybrid transmission lines under different fault conditions. Further, the impacts on the induced overvoltage on the healthy line from key influential factors, such as the grounding fault resistance, the collocation and layout of DC filters and fault type, are accounted for in details. Specifically, phase-mode transform method is adopted to theoretically analyze the effect of transposition mode of the UHV AC transmission line as how to reduce the induced overvoltage within the hybrid transmission lines. The proposed method and analyzed results present reliable reference for realizing optimal design of the UHV AC/DC hybrid transmission lines.
