Van Kersbergen, D.J. (author)
The main aim of the research is to passively use the on-site energy to create passive climate comfort. Usually this these passive strategies are not integrated into the design process but added to the building design later on when the building design is already finalized. The main topic of this building technology research is to integrate...

Current solutions for energy supply of electrical equipment in gardens are very limited and do not suffice. The inductive energy distribution concept that was developed by the company E-Snake BV, named E-Snake, could be a solution, by providing simple electrical installation that allows for flexible take-off. However, the usability of the...

In this thesis we present a novel solution to the kite trajectory tracking problem using an explicit control law. Compared to alternative approaches, such as model predictive control, our approach has three major advantages: a stability proof, ease of implementation, and minimal modeling requirements. The latter is especially important for...

At the moment global climate change is one of the most prominent environmental and energy issues of our life time. Currently CO2 levels in the atmosphere stand at 387 ppm, almost 40% higher since the start of the industrial revolution and the highest for at least the last 650,000 years. About 96% of these carbon emissions are the result of using...

Global turmoil concerning fossil fuels, questions relating to sustainable sources of energy and difficulties with sharing knowledge led to the creation of the Energy Transition Model (ETM) in the start of 2008. The ETM aims to be a transparent, comprehensive, fact-based, and independent model about energy related matters, ranging from CO2...

This thesis describes the research for, and the assessment of a new type of energy source and actuation, applicable to a Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV). From the preliminary study resulted a promising energy source: hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) which is combined with the basic principle of the internal combustion engine for conversion to mechanical...

Solar thermal energy solutions are facing a slow market penetration because of long economic pay back times of the initial investment. Concerning solar water heating, installation and hardware costs must be significantly reduced to allow for successful market penetration. As an attractive approach to cost reduction, I propose to replace the...

This graduation project focuses on a combination of the following; cars, comfort and the future. Two of these elements seem hard to grasp, and one moves the world. Together they form the ingredients for an interesting challenge; how can we provide comfort to the occupants of future cars? The power consumption of comfort features in a fuel...

Different kinds of typical and advanced façade (active wall®, interactive wall®, curtain wall, closed cavity façade®, triple glazing…) are more and more used in UK and other European countries, some of them are suitable for local climate with good energy and comfort performance. In order to predict their performance in other climate we need to...

Carbon Footprinting is a method of determining the environmental impact of a product or service. It focuses only on pollutions to the air by greenhouse gasses. There is a strong focus on these gases caused by intergovernmental alliances that restrict the amount of emitted gas. These agreements have been made, as a result of the widely accepted...

As we move towards an aging population, it is likely that an increasing number of people will require an increasing diversity of implants, but at a lower cost to the society. Also, as computer technology progresses, smaller, more powerful, and less battery intensive implants can be designed. However, present implant design methodology is highly...

The purpose of this thesis was to develop a preliminary concept design of a wave energy converter. The type of device designed was limited by several starting points which stipulated, among other criteria, a robust structure which can be constructed within a breakwater and can generate electricity from a fairly mild (in the order of Hs=0.5-1.5m)...
