The oceans, which cover nearly 70% of the earth’s surface, can be considered as an inexhaustible energy source for renewable electricity due to its size and predictability. One way to capture ocean energy is by harnessing the energy produced by waves at sea, by means of devices called wave energy converters (WECs).

Research context

Open government data (OGD) publication and use is an important feature of an open government. However, In Dutch municipalities, the presumed created value from municipal OGD fails to live up to its potential, despite various OGD initiatives. Furthermore, there is a lack of knowledge about how value creating mechanisms...

The project focuses on developing and implementing a 0D or 1D model for radial compressors and turbines, capable of both interpolating and extrapolating the performance maps. The proposed model will be calibrated using the data points available in the maps provided by the manufacturers to produce accurate mass flow for turbines and pressure...

The modeling method for the performance of positive displacement pumps of hydraulic pumps is based on collecting operational data of the pump for its operational envelope and using equations with empirical fitting parameters and fit these equations to the data. This way values for the fitting parameters are obtained, with which the equations can...

In the highly uncertain environment of conceptual aircraft design and technology assessment and selection, making good decisions is of utmost importance. Aiming to contribute to improving decision quality, the problem was researched from both a technical as well as a socio-psychological perspective. In the technical perspective, the uncertainty...

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are used to control large scale systems with thousands of I/O devices. Writing and maintaining the logic for each of these is a cumbersome task, which is well suited to be abstracted through templating. For this purpose, CERN developed the Unicos Application Builder (UAB). While UAB is successful at...

Maritime transport covers about 90%of world trade and is seen as one of the most cost-effective way of transporting goods. In order to safely accommodate vessels calling into ports, tugs are operated to assist various sized vessels with navigating, manoeuvring and berthing. Competition within the ship handling market has always been fierce....

Tsirelson once claimed that the set of quantum correlations, defined by strategies of non-local two-player games, does not depend on which of two possible models is chosen: the tensor product model or the commuting operator model. He later came back from this claim, and the resulting conjecture is now known as Tsirelson’s problem. The problem...

Experimental fluid dynamics and computational fluid dynamics have traditionally been treated as disparate fields of study. However, each field has its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. Data assimilation is a field that can be used to leverage some of the advantages each field offers to help compensate mutual
weaknesses. In this...

Smart charging offers the potential for electric vehicles to use renewable energy more efficiently, lowering costs and improving the stability of the electricity grid. Many computer models have been developed to simulate the behavior of smart charging. Yet these models often assume that future information is known perfectly, including when...

LoRa is being widely adopted by industrial communities for its long range, robustness and low power wireless communication capabilities. In fact LoRa is gaining more popularity even amongst the common people as it is an affordable solution and operates in the unlicensed radio spectrum. However, LoRa provides a widely heterogeneous coverage; it...

Most wireless communication technologies have been using the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum for decades. Due to the popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT), the RF spectrum has started to become densely populated. Researchers have begun to explore other bands of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be utilized as a communication media. One of...

Due to their altered genetic context, cancer cells can become dependent on specific genes for their survival. Such cancer-specific dependencies may represent promising therapeutic targets. However, knowledge on which molecular features of cancer cells induce specific dependencies is still limited and hampers the development of effective targeted...

Nowadays, growing up is quite different from what it was before. Around the globe the larger part of children engage in inordinate time looking at screens (Bucksch et al., 2016). The smartphone enables children to have more screen time, leading to negative consequences. Nevertheless, children still prefer this type of entertainment due to the...

People like to travel in groups to visit places. Group recommendation systems can be used to recommend an itinerary of "places of interests" (POIs) in an ordered sequence. The order of items in the sequence can be explained to group members to increase acceptance of the recommended items. For example, explanations that reveal names and their...

In this thesis, an alternative cable lay system was designed that can be used on existing non-cable lay vessels. This design is conceptualized and analyzed for a specific market, following the steps in the engineering design process. The technical and economic analysis investigates the feasibility and competitiveness of the new cable lay system....

The quantum bits (qubits) at the core of any quantum computers are so fragile that quantum error correction(QEC) schemes are needed to increase their robustness and enable fault-tolerant quantum algorithms. The surface code is one of the most popular QEC schemes, but it requires the availability of an efficient decoder. While neural networks...
