The renewable generation capacity, particularly solar and wind power installations, has increased steadily in the Netherlands over the course of recent years. Due to the local, small-scale nature of these power plants (compared to conventional power plants), a large share of this generation capacity is installed into the medium- and low-voltage...

This thesis addresses the Learning-Based Control (LBC) of unknown partially observable systems in the Linear Quadratic (LQ) paradigm. In this setting of learning-based LQ control, the control action influences not only the control performance but also the rate at which the system is being learnt, causing a conflict between learning and control ...

Quadrupedal robots possess the ability to move freely in the world and perform a variety of actions that would be unsafe or impractical for humans to perform. In the SNOW project, a quadrupedal robot is tasked with aiding firefighters in rescue missions during house fires by locating humans and assessing their health. Pushing away obstacles that...

The railway timetable rescheduling problem is a challenging problem in both industry and academia. It is required to calculate a feasible and relatively good timetable within a limited time to reduce the negative impact of disturbances or disruptions. The railway timetable rescheduling problem is typically formulated as a mixed integer linear...

Ambitions to limit climate change are incentivizing the expansion of renewable energy. In particular, offshore wind energy is expected to grow rapidly. To harness the full potential of existing as well as prospected offshore wind farms, the limited capacity of the internal cable network of the offshore wind farm, called the collector system,...

Nowadays, the high demand for road transportation often reaches a point where it exceeds the capacity of freeway traffic networks, resulting in congestion. Freeway traffic congestion is a major social problem, as it is the reason for increased time delays, higher accident risk and environmental pollution. There is, therefore, the need for a...

Currently, inland waterway shipping mainly includes barges and bulk transportation with little to no variation in volume, product, and route. Since transport over water emits less CO2 per tonne-km than road transport, a potential way to reduce CO2 emissions is to transport more containers via inland waterways. Large delays cause unreliability,...

Railway networks are subjected to disruptions on a daily basis, which may make the timetable unimplementable, which in its turn may significantly influence passenger satisfaction. In practice, train dispatchers are responsible for mitigating the influence of disruptions, such as delays of trains, train cancellations, and overcrowdedness at...

Urban areas with many daily commuters often experience a reduction in traffic flow during rush hours. In some urban areas where this reduction in traffic flow occurs, there are popular destinations for leisure that have multiple large parking facilities. Vehicles searching for vacant parking spots drive at a lower vehicle speed, reducing the...

Traffic flow predictions are an important component in the rising demand for solutions to cope with the increasing pressure on transportation networks. Especially on a long prediction horizon, traffic flow predictions remain challenging due to the complex, nonlinear nature of traffic flow and the influence of both temporal and external features....

Maintenance is a necessary measure to keep the asset, in this case a road network, in good condition. Spending too much on maintenance is clearly not efficient, while not spending enough may cause the condition to drop below a desired value; moreover, it will almost always cost more to correct the emerging damages afterwards. <br/>In this report...

To achieve the goals on greenhouse gas emissions, the energy supply and demand is in transition. Distribution power grids therefore are increasingly reaching their capacity limits due to electrification and the vast increase of distributed energy resource (DER) connection requests with large peak power output. Increasing physical grid capacity...

Accurate vehicle localization is considered to be a key element in future automated driving systems. A network of multiple sensors is employed to deliver information for this localization process. Loosely coupled integration of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and inertial navigation systems (INS) data is a common sensor-fusion method...

Inefficient road usage in a traffic network context – i.e. over-saturation on one route, where other roads are still available – is an important problem. It appears often and in different types of situations. We concentrate on congestion caused by predicted temporary road blockades, such as open bridges. This research aims to reduce such...

This research provides benchmark accuracies for forecasting of an aggregated price of the Dutch intraday market. While point forecasts in a single-step-ahead horizon for that unresearched market provide novel insights already, the scope of this research also includes interval forecasts in a multi-step-ahead horizon. A forecasting procedure is...

Microgrids are a promising tool that can help transition the electricity grid towards a smart grid. They can provide significant benefits to the power grid in the form of increased reliability and flexibility. The microgrid controller sets the electricity consumption and generation of all controllable devices within the microgrid and controls...

One of the main sources of greenhouse gasses is the vast and still expanding road transport sector. The number of vehicles utilizing freeways increases every day, with more and more traffic jams as a result. Lately, the development of smart traffic management systems seems to be a way out and these systems are used extensively. In this thesis,...

Intersections are the bottleneck of traffic flow. Vehicle-actuated control improved the delay at an intersection by making the green phase variable based on the presence of vehicles as measured by detector loops. The duration of the yellow and red phase remains fixed times because intentions of specific human-driven vehicles (HDVs) are unknown,...

A future rise in electrical energy demand is expected due to the electrification of the thermal energy supply and the rise in popularity of the Electric Vehicle (EV). This rise in the electrical energy demand results in needed investments in the electrical energy infrastructure to prevent congestion at the transformer due to the higher peak of...

Drinking Water Distribution Network (DWDN) vulnerability to disasters yields ever threatening consequences to society. Earthquakes are shown to have devastating effects on these networks, causing multiple pipe breaks and leaks to occur simultaneously. This results in a lack of pressure and unavailability of water for extended time periods....
