Tang, Weihong (author)
In light of the pressing challenges posed by global climate change and the imperative to reduce CO2 emissions, innovative approaches in energy management are critically important. This thesis presents an exploration of heat pumps integrated with Thermal Storage System (TES) systems, an area of research and application pivotal for enhancing...

The Jones Act, limited US port facilities, and absence of Jones Act-compliant installation vessels pose significant challenges for offshore wind farm installations. These factors force contractors to explore new installation strategies, such as feedering. Feedering is an installation strategy where the wind turbine installation vessel remains...

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 ...

Electrification of numerous end-users is a worldwide trend to address climate change, according to the International Energy Agency. This trend has also reached container terminal operators. Currently most of the ship-to-shore cranes employed are electrified, leading to an increase in the required electrical power demand and to an increase in the...

This research presents a novel data-based modal control method for actively dampening the flexible mode in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. Traditional passive damping methods add significant mass to the system, making recent advances in sensor and actuator technology, such as lightweight piezoelectric materials, a more appealing...

Undesired vibrations are one of the most significant sources of error in any type of mechatronic system or component. The emerging field of elastic (locally resonant) metamaterials offers a viable solution to successfully suppress these by generating bandgaps in both resonant and non-resonant regions. In this thesis, metamaterials in a sensor...

Navigation systems in an Autonomous Vehicles (AV) can be divided into two parts: a path planning block which takes in the environmental data and rules to design a collision-free obstacle and a vehicle control and tracking block which generates actuator inputs for the AV to follow the reference path generated by the path planning block. Each task...

As the share of renewable energy generation increases, the need for energy storage also increases. Therefore, there is a need for better storage representation in the current energy modelling tools. In the present day,<br/>the longer-term energy storage systems are not fully represented since, for existing storage systems, the self-serving...
