Quantum thermodynamics takes over from classical thermodynamics when systems are of the scale of single particles and quantum fluctuations have a noticeable effect. An interesting topic of research of this relatively new field is the quantum battery, which in this thesis consists of an array of N identical electron spin qubits. In an article by...

In recent years the field of wireless charging has seen remarkable developments. More and more devices like mobile phones and laptops can be charged wirelessly, and larger equipment like electric vehicles are likely to follow the same path. The air gaps over which the power can be transferred keeps increasing, as do the
amount of power that...

The aim of this thesis report is to analyze slope stability parameters given by HHNK for the dike around a polder located in the province of North-Holland, “Starnmeer”, and a lake located to the west of it called “Alkmaardermeer”. Most of the dike has been reported to be too low in some places and plans of restoration will be implemented in 2019...

To allow the incorporation of engine design in the Aircraft Initiator conceptual design tool, a modular engine design and performance estimation tool has been created, which is intended to allow the study of the effects of changes to engine architecture on the complete aircraft design. It generates estimates for engine thrust, specific fuel...

Transition experiments are thought to be important tools for achieving transformational change in the urban water system. The governance of these experiments is described as a key factor in the success of these experiments. This paper sets out to operationalize and validate an evaluative scheme for the appraisal of transition experiments. This...

Background and relevance
Annualy, 14500 Dutch women get diagnosed with breast cancer. When getting diagnosed, there are several treatment options. It gets more common that this decision is made by the patient and physician together. But breast cancer is something you endure together, and the naaste is also important in the breast cancer...

The demand for express delivery services is growing rapidly and the express delivery market is getting more competitive. To secure their competitiveness, these enterprises are pressured to invest in technologies that could sustain their future growth and keep their operating costs as low as possible. The Automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology...

Modern wind turbines frequently operate at off-design conditions during their life cycle. They undergo dynamic loads characterized by unsteady aerodynamics. Predicting these unsteady aerodynamic loads has been very difficult due to the non-linear nature of unsteady aerodynamics. Especially when operating near the stall region, these turbine are...

In this thesis, the applicability of a novel method – the Participatory Value Evaluation method – to the transition towards zero natural gas use at the local level of the case study neighborhood Hengstdal in Nijmegen was researched. The main objective of this thesis is to contribute to the development of the PVE method by researching the...

Small, cheap, low-energy electronics and ICT create the opportunity to collect all kind of data of a human being in operational circumstances. These data facilitate the optimisation en effectiveness of the human efforts. Simple examples such as heart rate monitors optimising physical exertion or hypoxia sensors measuring blood saturation are...

This thesis presents an individual tip control (IPC) system based on blade tip deflection measurements. The controller is based on novel sensor inputs which measure flapwise tip deflection distance at a high sampling rate. IPC plays a key role in reducing fatigue loads in wind turbine components. These fatigue loads are caused by differential...

Increased international marine transport has increased the use of containers. This goes hand in hand with the increased demand for well-functioning container terminals. The speed at which containers can be handled on the container terminal is an important performance indicator for container terminals. In particular, the productivity of the Quay...

One way to implement a wind turbine in the sea is to use lattice structures. Since these structures are placed offshore, they must be able to withstand all kinds of loads. It is essential that the eigenfrequencies of the support structure do not correspond to the passing frequencies of the blades and any other dynamic actions. To avoid this the...

Background: Currently the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) has a traditional three echelon supply chain consisting of suppliers that deliver to a warehouse and the warehouse that delivers to customers. However, the RNLA is interested in having its stock geographically spread for safety reasons. A solution for this would be to re-design the supply...

The CIGRE B1 – B3.49 JWG defined a standardised 145 kV inner-cone GIS cable termination design. This standardisation allows the creation of new common interface insulators. This would eliminate the planning hurdles due to the fact that the cable system is not usually defined at the time of switchgear manufacture. The new design also requires a...

In this thesis we introduce a variation on the quantum random walk to discuss shifts in an arbitrary range. The concept of Hadamard coin was therefore generalised to a higher order. By a Fourier transform method and a tensor product decomposition of the evolution matrix the long-range quantum random walk was found to converge in distribution to...

To control fluid transport, microfluidic systems often make use of pressure driven flow and pneumatically actuated valves. However these require bulky external instrumentation. An integrated fluid control mechanism would make microfluidic systems more portable, closed and automated. The aim of this project was to create a pH-responsive membrane...
