Energy transition goals to reduce carbon emissions are a driver key for an increase share of variable renewable energy sources (vRES). To achieve 49% of CO2 reduction by 2030 compared to 1990, the Netherlands set a plan to generate 84 TWh of electricity from renewable energy sources, where 35 TWh need to be generated exclusively from onshore...

The amount of air traffic worldwide is increasing, with an adverse effect on aircraft noise in the vicinity of airports as a result. Measurements and calculations have complementary benefits and limitations for the assessment of aircraft noise. A common method for the calculation of aircraft noise is ECAC Doc. 29. Various improvements of this...

The problem that discussed is less an issue to the contexts, but a general critical reflection on the disciplinary of architecture. The determinant role of architects in design process and free interpretation of the inhabitants pose the conflictions. Our (architects) creativities and imaginations are confined within the given role and limited...

With the upsurge of disruptive trends such as digitalisation and automation, organisations have become more vulnerable to the consequences of these disruptive trends. The Harbourmaster is responsible for facilitating a safe and efficient port-call-process. Digitalisation and automation might lead to opportunities and threats in the port-call...

The information security (IS) risk assessment process is an essential part to organisation's their protection of digital assets. However, the fast changing IS environment causes for limited knowledge of eventualities, dependencies and values of systems and phenomena. Consequently, the IS risk assessment process is depending on the judgment of...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...

Uncertainty has an obstructing role in the decision-making of electrification investments for industrial actors. Future research by analysts is required to explore the potential of electrified industrial systems in their uncertain environments. In order to enable research to uncertainty in electrified industrial systems, the identification and...

Teleoperation allows the use of human intelligence and decision making in remote tasks which are too dangerous for humans to perform. Technologies such as force feedback and haptic guidance have shown to increase task efficiency during teleoperation. In an unmodeled environment, sensors provide input for haptic guidance or present extra...

The increasing penetration of wind power generation introduces uncertainty in the behaviour of electric power grids. This work is concerned with the problem of day-ahead reserve scheduling (RS) for power systems with high levels of wind power penetration, and proposes a novel set-up that incorporates an alternating current (AC) Optimal Power...

River systems are vastly changing environments, not only due to natural process, but also human intervention plays an important role. With the many different river functions at play, large amounts of maintenance budgets are associated with river management. For decision makers it is important to know expected costs or losses and the spread...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

Conventional hydrological models use a deterministic approach. One could think of it like a black box, having an input, parameters, relations and an output. The parameters are calibrated by comparing the model output with observations of the system response (for example river runoff). When assessing the uncertainty in models the focus is often...

During the last years, flood risk assessments at continental and global scales are emerging as useful tools for risk hotspot identification, support for international policy-making and harmonization of strategies for climate change adaptation. The emergence of these models comes to cover the growing demand for integrated, large-scale risk...

When tasks need to be performed in remote, potentially inaccessible and/or hostile environments for humans, it is often more convenient to send a robot. Such environments are often only partially known, and therefore not suitable for fully autonomous robots to operate in. In these situations teleoperation can be used, which combines the problem...

Offshore wind energy is expected to grow in the coming years: future plans for offshore wind farms total more than 98 GW. Financing is needed to realise these plans. Investment decisions partly depend on the uncertainty in energy yield predictions. It is therefore important that these energy yield predictions and their corresponding uncertainty...

The electricity transmission system, lynchpin of the power system chain, has been recognized to play a significant role in fulfilling policy targets such as high integration levels of renewable energy sources, reduction of CO2 emissions, lower electricity costs and increased security of supply. In the European context, cross-border transmission...

The amount of electric vehicles is increasing due to measures taken by governments in order to make a, for sustainability, desired switch from the embedded system of combustion vehicles. A barrier for the market adaptation of electric vehicles is the availability of a charging infrastructure. In the Netherlands municipalities are responsible for...

Networked infrastructures such as gas and water pipelines, roads, railroads or power grids provide essential utilities and services to society. Common characteristics of such infrastructures include high capital costs, generally long lifetimes and irreversibility once the construction of such networks have finished. In the design of these...

Wind power has proven to be one of the most versatile forms of renewable energy. Similarly, offshore wind is currently emerging as the most promising method of meeting the global target for low cost of renewable energy production, given the massive potential of wind at sea. However, from the wind turbine design point of view, the requirement of...
