This thesis extensively examines the influential factors affecting the performance of approximations of Model Predictive Control (MPC) control laws using neural networks. MPC is a control strategy that solves an optimization problem at each timestep. This problem can be computationally complex and could be too slow to compute for online control....

Timetables determine the service quality for passengers and the energy consumption of trains in metro systems. In metro networks, a timetable can be made by optimizing train departure frequencies for different periods of the day. Typically, the optimization problem that arises from optimizing train departure frequencies in metro networks...

Research in passive Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems has gained traction over the last few years. Although passive HVAC is not a new concept, advances in environment sensing, control methods, and hardware have made it a more viable method. Some difficulties still exist, such as optimal sensor placement and optimal...

Both model predictive control (MPC) and reinforcement learning (RL) have shown promising results in the control of traffic signals in urban traffic networks. There are, however, a few drawbacks. MPC controllers are not adaptive and therefore perform suboptimal in the presence of the uncertainties that always occur in urban traffic systems....

Over the past few decades, transport authorities globally have resorted to transport models for testing policy interventions and simulating the results as part of the ex-ante analysis. Within the domains of traffic assignment, there is a greater focus on the dynamic representation of traffic, which has proved to be more accurate when compared to...

<br/>Being a safe and healthy alternative for polluting and space-inefficient motorised vehicles, cycling can strongly improve living conditions in urban areas. Idling in front of traffic lights is seen as one of the major inconveniences of commuting by bicycle. By giving personalised speed advice, the probability of catching a green light can...

Substantial efforts are being made to make robots more reliable and safe to work around humans. Robots often perform flawless demos in a controlled environment under the supervision of an operator but tend to fail in the real world when deployed for a long period of time due to faults and environmental disturbances. A robotic system is composed...

Traffic congestion on highways is a multi-sectoral phenomenon affecting society, the economy and the environment. It often takes place at specific locations such as on and off-ramps, weaving segments and intersections. The on-ramp merging procedure is considered as one of the main factors that causes traffic congestion on highways. The studies...

Graph Neural Networks are a unique type of Deep Learning models that have a capability to exploit an explicitly stated structure of data representation. By design they carry a strong relational inductive bias, which is a set of assumptions that makes the algorithm prioritize some solutions over another, independent of observed data. This makes...

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are unmanned vehicles that give the opportunity to carry out lengthy and dangerous tasks autonomously. This is particularly useful for survey tasks, where the objective is to search the seafloor for objects. In this thesis work a planning system is developed that can plan a path for survey tasks, while...

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are unmanned vehicles that are often used for searching an area of the seabed for objects, such as naval mines. For autonomous planning of such search operations, it is useful to be able to infer what tasks an AUV can perform and how well it can do so. The objective for this final thesis project therefore...

During the exposure process of a wafer scanner, problems occur due to reticle heating. In this project, the consequences of reticle heating in terms of image aberrations are discussed along with how they could be solved with feedback controlled cooling. The problem is defined in terms of a performance index and constraints, which fits the Model...

Fast depleting fossil fuels and growing awareness for environmental protection have led us to the urgency of a long-term energy planning where reduction of emissions, integration of renewable supply, and energy efficiency improvement represent the main targets of a ‘smarter’ employment of primary resources. Research is needed nowadays to drive a...

Nowadays in large-scale process industry, high purity of products is not only desired but crucial. Products must meet high-purity standards to conform with market and customers’ requirements. Two chemical processes, reaction and distillation, are essential to achieve these objectives. To overcome certain disadvantages and/or limitations that...
