Grootes, Casper (author)
With an increase in higher power (ultra) fast EV charging stations and a new EU law for mandatory deployments of EV charging stations, an optimal MVAC grid connection for these charging stations is desired. Considering this connection, the use of a solid-state transformer (SST) performs better in terms of weight, size and efficiency with a...

In today’s society, the need for alternate high-speed data transmission solutions has increased due to the radio frequency (RF) spectrum’s growing congestion. Visible Light Communication (VLC)-based LiFi has emerged as a possible alternative to current wireless technologies like WiFi. The difficulty, though, is that the photodiode performance as...

Pozzetto, Alessandro (author)
This thesis work investigates and provides an analysis of the potential benefits of an electricity - gas - heat integrated energy system, putting extra focus on the waste heat potential from fuel cells and electrolysers. The main focus is given to the low-voltage distribution grid level, and a case study is presented for the Drechtsteden...

Energy consumption keeps increasing, and more than three-quarters of the EU’s green-house gas emissions stem from it. Hence, it is important to reduce or stop burning fossil fuels to limit the temperature rise to 1.5∘C according to the Paris agreement target. Nowadays, renewable energy sources and distributed generation are increasingly...

An efficient, compact, and lightweight three-phase AC-DC power factor correction (PFC) converter becomes a necessity for the On-board chargers (OBCs) of the electric vehicle (EV) in conventional grid-to-vehicle (G2V) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging scenarios. The commercially available OBCs have very limited power density despite the moderate...

This thesis addresses a novel configuration of hot-swappable Multi-Active-Bridge (MAB) DC/DC converter in renewable-energy-based systems. As an extension of the Dual-Active-Bridge (DAB) converter, the MAB converter provides a multiport DC/DC converter solution with bidirectional power flow, simple phase shift control and galvanic isolation, but...

Individual actions cannot solve the current climate crisis. Part of the collective effort is to research solar energy as new ways to produce cleaner, cheaper and more efficient electricity. Among all the current solar cell technologies, a thriving and promising one is perovskite as an absorber material. In the last ten years, the power...

Parameswaran, Vignesh (author)
Given the rising research of thin film solar cells in recent years, flexible technology has been proven to be more light weight and cost effective. As photovoltaics is increasingly becoming the front runner in sustainable energy production, concerns over the associated impacts of solar modules throughout their life cycle are also increasing....

With the rise of various renewable energy sources, comes the possibility for combining the different type of sources together to balance their shortcomings. The goal is to find a renewable energy system that can be reliable year-round and be accessible for everyone. This research tries to model such a system. A model of a grid-tied PV-battery...

PV systems in urban environments frequently get shaded by nearby objects, which greatly reduces their yield. A potential solution for such situations is the use of reconfigurable PV modules. They are a type of modules which can reconfigure themselves under varying illumination conditions to ensure optimum yield at all times. The individual PV...

Thin-film flexible solar panels can be utilized on many surfaces where conventional solar panels are hard to be used such as side walls of buildings, ship roofs or curved surfaces. In conventional solar cells, glass is used to protect the panels from external damage. However due to its heavy weight and rigidity, glass is not an option for thin...

Gribnau, David (author)
The installation of photovoltaic systems in the urban environment is becoming increasingly common. These photovoltaic systems are affected by a large fraction of reflected irradiance as well as partial shading. In a similar way these issues also have an important effect on bifacial photovoltaic power plants. Irradiance models that are able to...

Trolleybus systems may be a sustainable and cheap alternative to diesel and battery buses. However, to improve sustainablity, the trolleybus system must be powered by renewable energy sources. In this work, a case study on the Arnhem trolleybus grid is performed. First the bus power demands and bus traffic are constructed for the whole system,...

In urban environments, more and more building added and building integrated photovoltaic (PV) systems are found. These systems use conventional solar modules which have a poor performance under non-uniform illumination conditions. When the module is partially shaded, either at least one<br/>subgroup is bypassed or the module current is limited...

The residential and service sectors are responsible for the 39% of the total energy consumption. 80% of this energy is used for heating purposes. Achieving nearly zero energy buildings is a major goal for the near future. The design of an integrated electrical and thermal system can substantially help to reach such objective. The façade is the...
