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.

A means of manipulating the power output of an individual wind turbine has been developed at the University of Strathclyde. This model takes into account the wind turbine dynamics. However, in order to enable such a control strategy to provide inertial response, the system needs to be coupled to control systems that monitor a power system. For inertial response, it is important that the wind turbine control strategy be made aware of changes in the power system as quickly as possible such that a change in power output (akin to inertial response) can be delivered in less than 200ms. This work focuses on monitoring power system frequency.
