Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

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.
