Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

In order to cope with various supplies and loads in an autonomous microgrid, a system of sensors and a control unit was developed. The goals of this system are to cope efficiently in the event of an energy supply shortage, and to prevent such events as much as possible. To achieve these goals, the aim was to manage energy in the system as...

Aviation has a significant impact on the global atmosphere. Next to particle and gas emissions, the increase of cloud cover might increasingly contribute to aviation induced climate change. Water contained in the exhaust of jet engines locally raises the relative humidity levels sufficiently for contrail formation to occur. These contrails can...

This thesis considers the problem of designing a mechanism that efficiently regulates imbalances on the energy grid. Brokers aggregate supply and demand on the energy market by buying and selling power ahead of time. Mispredictions create discrepancies between supply and demand and need to be resolved. With the increasing usage of sustainable...
