Ter Mors, B.M. (author)
An increased amount of work is done towards opti- mizing the mechanical design of vibrational energy harvesters in order to cope with varying ambient conditions. Here the performance of a piezoelectric energy harvester with varying non-linear spring characteristics is modelled and experimentally veri- fied, determining the optimal non-linear...

In a modern environment users are more dependant on their ability to use their mobile phone for nearly everything. They communicate with almost any device and those devices provide nearly limitless access to for instance a watch or in new applications, a lock. Issues encountered with these devices are the almost always lack the ability to keep...

This thesis looks into the possibility to produce geothermal energy in the Roer Valley Graben. The locations in this area are limited due to the low permeability of the deep Triassic layers. Fractures can enhance the heat production by increasing the effective permeability and decrease the pressure that is needed to produce the heat. However,...

The Kloosterkerk is a 700 year old monumental church in The Hague. By analysing and researching the case and relevant literature, a design basis is made for redesigning the climate system. Several systems are developed and evaluated. In the end integrating a energy saving measures, a smart air heating system and PV panels has the most advantages.

Traditionally, long flights were an adventure for the happy few, nowadays they are mostly characterized as being boring. Passengers respond to this by creating isolated cocoons in which the passenger experience privacy and comfort. This behavior is stimulated by airlines who provide mentally passive stimulation, e.g. listening to music or...

The project described in this report aims to develop a solution that integrates the qualities of a presence-based dynamic light controller, with the ones of an outdoor public light point, all in one product, providing the potential energy savings (up to 80%), while lowering installation & maintenance costs. A design concept is proposed, which...

A tethered wing can be used in two different ways, to lift payload or to provide traction power. The latter is the basis of several innovative technical applications, such as kite-assisted ship propulsion and pumping-kite wind energy conversion. This thesis presents a theoretical analysis of traction power generation by a tethered wing. The...

Industrial buildings, used as warehouses or distribution centres, are characterized by large doors which are opened temporarily or for longer periods. A new technique - called Ambergy - is investigated which prevents unnecessary energy loss through open overhead doors in heated industrial halls. This technique consists of a smart coupling...

A continuous population growth and increasing energy demand combined with depleting traditional energy reserves puts a pressure on conventional methods of electricity generation. The desire and ambition to create a more sustainable society paves the way for the ‘renewables’. Hydropower or Hydroelectricity already plays a significant role in...

We do live in interesting times. Social, political and financial turmoil, peak oil and nuclear accidents all contribute to the realisation that perhaps things need to change in our energy system. Providing the right type of energy at the right place at the right time is of course the answer. As the potential yields of renewable energy sources...

In many developing countries governments are not able to provide energy access to its inhabitants, especially those living in rural areas and with the lowest incomes. For these 4-5 million people around the world, who live with less than $2 a day, often referred to as the Base of the Pyramid (BoP), electricity is deficient and unreliable....

CHP-Belduco is a Combined Heat and Power plant, which was built on the site of Belchem, a chemical company in Flanders, Belgium. The purpose of the plant is to deliver steam and other utilities to the chemical plants on the site. In order to do that efficiently, the combination of heat and electricity is used. The plant is owned and managed by...

This study is performed as part of the project ‘Jouw Energie Moment’, which is initiated by Enexis to support the energy transition that is about the start. This project takes place in the ‘Muziekwijk’ in Zwolle, the Netherlands. If one looks at the future energy supply, the expectation is that both the amount of sustainable electricity and...
