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

    In this paper, we demonstrate through simulation a low - cost, high - speed optical voltage sensing system with a multiplexing capability. The scheme utilizes transducers based on a hybrid piezoelectric/ optical construction, whereby the optical power reflected from dual - peak fiber Bragg gratings is modulated in response to an excitation voltage and monitored by photodetection while remaining robust to fluctuations in optical power and temperature. A dedic ated solid - state interrogation system incorporating passive wavelength division multiplexing allows for high - speed measurement over the ac/dc voltage sensor array without the use of expensive components, such as tunable filters or lasers .
