DC distribution systems (DCDSs) are a promising alternative to AC systems because they remove AC-DC conversions between renewable sources and loads. Their unique features compared to AC include low system inertia, strict power limits and power–voltage coupling. In a liberalised electricity market, merely applying an AC market design to a DCDS...

Thanks to new technological advancements and EU policy impulse, distributed energy resources (DER) are poised to become a viable alternative to conventional electricity generation for the provision of balancing services to transmission system operators. In this paper we show that the design variables that affect DER access to and...

PV-battery systems are currently not operated in an energy system optimal way as their operation heuristic (maximization of self-consumption) is generally unaffected by competitive market signals. To evaluate potential regulatory intervention, we propose a market alignment indicator which measures the relative economic efficiency of a prosumer...

Day-ahead electricity markets are inefficient due to their coarse discretisation of time and their representation of electricity production and consumption in energy per time interval. This leads to excessive costs and infeasible schedules in the market clearing results. Some real-world systems have increased the resolution to improve accuracy,...

Engineered viruses are finding an increasing number of applications in basic, translational research and materials science. Genetic and chemical engineering of capsids represents a key point for tailoring the properties of viral particles, but the synthetic efforts and limits accompanying these processes still hinder their usability. Here, a...

Ostwald ripening can improve the long-range order of self-assembled monolayers by the growth of large domains and disassembly of smaller ones. Here, coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations are used to study the dynamics of the stable assembly and the coarsening of defects of physisorbed monolayers of long-chain functionalized alkanes....

The spin-orbit interaction is investigated in a dual gated InAs/GaSb quantum well. Using an electric field, the quantum well can be tuned between a single-carrier regime with exclusively electrons as carriers and a two-carrier regime where electrons and holes coexist. The spin-orbit interaction in both regimes manifests itself as a beating in...

Background: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is common in older adults and associated with increased morbidity and mortality, loss of independence and high health-care costs. Standing up slowly is a recommended non-pharmacological intervention. However, the effectiveness of this advice has not been well studied. Objectives: The aim of this study...

In this research a workflow for upscaling polymer flooding is developed. The workflow generates pseudorelative permeabilities (pseudos) to represent flow behaviour affected by fine scale heterogeneities in a coarse grid. With this workflow, a better estimate of the difference in production from a polymer flood compared to a water flood can be...

Amsterdam is growing fast, faster than the rest of the Netherlands. This leads to many challenges such as housing shortage and high pressure on space and amenities. For its competitiveness it important that Amsterdam keeps developing. However, it is often considered to be full. This study will show that there is a lot of space unused in the city...

This paper investigated if a pursuit tracking task could be used to quantify the loss of motor skills due to Parkinson's disease (PD) by using system identification methods. A human-in-the-loop experiment consisting of PD patients and a healthy age-gender matched control group was conducted at the Erasmus University Medical Center. A pursuit...

When looking at domains with several building densities, the resulting average concentrations caused by traffic when unknown, are often linearised between known building densities. To verify if this assumption is correct, several cases of street canyons with intersections, are simulated using the DALESURBAN model. The traffic is represented by a...

Although ‘models’ play a significant role in engineering activities, not much has yet been developed to enhance the technological literacy of students in this regard. This contribution intends to help fill this gap and deliver a comprehensive account as to the nature and various properties of these engineering tools. It begins by inspecting two...

Small blind estuaries are a common phenomenon on the coast of Nicaragua, but unfortunately not much is known on their hydrological characteristics. A blind estuary can be identified by a sandbar that temporarily closes the estuary from sea. These blind estuaries often have very diverse flora and fauna on which they play an important ecological...
