Heave Compensation (HC) greatly improves the operability of lifting operations at sea, performed from ships under influence of heave motion. Especially with long cables and heavy payloads, the payload starts moving with larger amplitudes than the ship itself when no HC control is involved. HC aims to decouple the ships vertical motion due to the...

Business processes are part of every company’s daily business. In the past hundreds of years, almost every aspect in the operation of businesses has seen a two-pronged transformation: first, toward defining and then following processes, and second, toward making the processes efficient through the use of technology.
In this work, we define a...

The Netherlands currently lacks a large scale aggregation system which can unlock decentralised flexibility to improve the reliability of the electricity grid in the presence of a significant amount of variable renewable energy sources. In this reserach, the aggregator blockchain technology is perceived as an enabler for a decentralised...

Stability and security of the grid are two vital aspects of energy supply. To keep the grid stable, it is necessary that the electricity plant can control and protect the mechanism. In the past, traditional plants could meet these requirements. Nowadays, the share of sustainable power sources in total electricity generation has become so...

Almost one third of the Dutch population has a fibre optic connection, also called Fibre to the Home (FttH). Fibre is currently the fastest and most reliable Internet technology. It consists of strong and flexible wires that are able to transport light signals over long distances. With such fibre optic connections, information is transmitted...

Advances in technology during the last decade have made piloted vehicles a reality. With an increasing level of vehicle automation, the role of the driver changes from controlling and observing the driving environment into becoming a passenger. However, with the introduction of piloted driving, the user has to trust his life to a machine....

Currently, non-rigid image registration algorithms are too time intensive to use in time-critical applications. To solve this problem, stochastic gradient descent (SGD) has been implemented in image registration. But, SGD depends on manual step size selection which is dicult and time consuming. To avoid such manual selection, SGD has been...

Automotive radar is a key element in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). With the growth of Automotive industry, there is a high demand for the sensors used in assisting systems. As the number of sensors increases, probability that these systems being in close proximity will also increase. This will lead to situations where in multiple...

Curved exhaust ducts are used in aero engine applications for different purposes, including thrust vectoring, shielding of parts from the exhaust or improving stealth properties. Their integration, however, regularly represents a design problem due to flow separation and high aerodynamic losses occurring in the bend. Curved duct flows for both...

This thesis proposes a novel low distortion, on-chip sine-wave generator. A low distortion input is required in many test and measurement setups for analog and mixed-signal systems, where the input signal should have less distortion than that contributed by the device under test (DUT). For conventional oscillators, there is a compromise between...

Junction flow denotes the fluid phenomenon where the flow on a flat surface encounters a protuberance. This type of flow, which is highly three-dimensional, turbulent and unsteady, usually leads to the generation of a Horseshoe vortex at the obstacle's leading edge. Existing extensive experimental and numerical studies focus on the inception of...

Western shipyards have to distinguish themselves by complex ships with short delivery times. This entails that in most cases the production already starts while the engineering has not even been finished. If the pipes and cables are not routed when the steel plate are cut by the CNC machine, the associated penetrations have to be cut manually...

Airline profit margins are very small. In a highly competitive market, the challenge is to differentiate from other airlines. Differentiation within an airplane is difficult, because of the rigidity of an airplane and the strict regulations. The economy is in a lift, businesses allow their employees to fly business class more often. First class...

Large-scale changes in ocean conditions caused by installing and operating Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) have not been studied in depth. Conversely, the effect on an OTEC plant by oceanographic features are not researched in depth either. The aim of this research is to describe the natural patterns and variability of the ocean currents...
