Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

There is an emerging need to prioritize remedial frequency control measures closer to the source of an imbalance event. This approach, referred to herein as responsibilization, is challenging to achieve within the conventional operating times of Primary Frequency Control (PFC) and therefore novel methods are sought. In this letter, a novel decentralized PFC is proposed which relies on transient phase offset to achieve fast responsibilization autonomously. The effectiveness of the proposed control is demonstrated by real-time simulations and its stability assessed by small-signal analysis. This development will lead to increased system resilience during imbalance events.
