Optimization is the mathematical process through which the set of conditions is obtained that produces the maximum or minimum value of a specified function. To solve different types of optimization problems several algorithms has been developed. They can be globally distinguished as deterministic or stochastic algorithms. Further on...

This master thesis work is inspired by the practical aspects of the Analytical Constant Modulus Algorithm (ACMA) proposed by Alle-Jan van der Veen and Arogyaswami Paulraj. The ACMA deals with the beamforming problem associated with constant modulus co-channel signal interference in wireless communication. Co-channel interference occur when...

The amount of travelers from and to the Dutch city Almere will grow from 40.000 back in 2009 to 100.00 in 2030. This requires intensive infrastructural improvements to the current situation of Almere. One of the main improvements of the network will be the redesign of the central station of the city. The current station is situated around a...

Nigerian suffers from inadequate electricity supply of which her transmission capacity is a major factor. Having deregulated her power system recently , systems planning( generation and transmission) becomes a chicken and egg problem of which its coordination is a complex socio-technical issue. In an effort to approach this problem ,TEPES ( a...

The first part of the Thesis consists of a research on topics related to Solar Energy, PV technologies and Materials used as part of active solar structures (from the active materials to substrates) as well as their integration in the form of custom shapes. The analysis of these topics reveals the potential of new and emerging PV technologies,...

Atmospheric entry is a process defined by extremes, from the great velocity at the point of entry to the high deceleration loads and aerodynamic heating in the lower layers of the atmosphere. In addition to the vehicle maintaining structural integrity, an equally important aspect of the re-entry mission is safety. This safety can only be...

Multi model adaptive control is an emerging field that has proven to be successful in mitigating limitations of classical adaptive control by providing more quicker and faster adaptation. In this method instead of one single parameter varying controller, multiple fixed parameter controllers pertaining to different operation regimes are utilized....

Due to fierce competition on the electricity market, many wind energy related research projects are currently aimed at cost reduction. In order to establish cost reduction, more and more wind turbines are being clustered in (offshore) wind farms. Major drawback of wind farms however, is the energy production loss due to aerodynamic wake...

Current autonomous steering controllers are designed based on either optimal control strategies or on average human driver steering behavior. Individual drivers may wish to steer differently than those controllers do. Such conflicts can be mitigated by customizing individual steering behavior. This thesis aims to develop a method to...

As of yet, there are virtually no practical tools available for incorporating both developer and consumer preferences within a floorplan design. This study aims to deliver a proof of concept for such preference-based design systems, and their application within the commercial property development process. A research model is presented that is...

In this thesis work we solve the problem of optimal placement and sizing of distributed generation by using an original Fuzzy Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm and a Mixed Integer Linear Programming formulation of the problem. The goal of integrating Fuzzy Logic in Particle Swarm Optimization is to be able to overcome some of the...

In this research computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to model a vertical axis wind turbine. Well known turbulence models | i.e. the k-epsilon and k-omega SST model | are used and compared in their performance against each other and a set of experimental data. The formal research question is "What models are available for the simulation of...

Currently the production process of acoustic guitar factories does not result in instruments with equal dynamical behaviour, due to the varying material properties of wood from tree to tree. Experienced individual guitar builders are able to handle those material variations, but this is a labour intensive process because there is no structured...

Atmospheric free flight scaled flight testing is an affordable way to investigate the dynamic properties of an aircraft, while enabling a wider range of test possibilities than a windtunnel. This research is the first step into the development of a scaled flight testing model and as such will highlighted the difficulties and discrepancies which...

The Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers (TSHD) are typically used for the transportation of soil. The soil in the hopper can be removed by hydraulic transport using water jets and the discharge at the bottom level of the hopper. The soil fluidization and transportation is jet assisted. The unloading process can take quite some time; the unloading...

Striving to improve structural efficiency the aerospace industry shows increasing interest in variable-stiffness composite laminates. Advanced fiber placement is a hybrid manufacturing technique that offers the flexibility of both filament winding and automated tape laying. With the development of this novel system curved tows can be placed and...

This research aims at modeling the trajectory followed by the Galileo spacecraft during a variety of flybys about the Galilean moons. The chosen flybys have good Earth’s elevation angles and either low or high closest-approach altitudes, so that the comparison of the two can give relevant insight into the accuracy of the corresponding...
