The energy transition is expected to increase the peak loading of the grid, requiring Distribution System Operators (DSOs) like Stedin to invest an increasing amount of capital and labour in the reinforcement of their network. Flexible resources can be used to decrease the peak loading of the grid through better matching consumption and...

Wireless power transfer has been around for a long time. In 1899 Nikola Tesla demonstrated that it was possible to transfer power using a pair of coils. This technology has advanced to now charge a wide range of portable devices, such as phones. In this thesis, a wireless charging system is designed to be integrated into a power bank with UV-C...

To enable the portable use of electronic devices, (rechargeable) batteries need to be used. These batteries require a battery management system in order for them to operate safely and efficiently. This thesis describes such a system for the Wireless Powerlizer: a power bank with wireless charging capabilities and an integrated sterilizer using...

The effectiveness of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation for disinfection has been well-known for more than a century. Recent advances in light­-emitting diode (LED) technology have brought UV LEDs to the consumer market. These offer many advantages over traditional gas­-discharge lamps, allowing UV radiation to be generated with higher reliability in...

The Paris Agreement, which calls for countries to channel their efforts to limit global warming would require the deployment of large scale offshore wind energy in the North Sea. This includes the possibility of developing offshore infrastructure for deploying offshore wind power generation with installed capacity ranging from 70 to 150 GW by...

The modern world demands more and more electric energy. At the same time, almost a billion more people are expected to gain access to electricity over the next decade. All of the above compose a very challenging future, where a continuously increasing amount of electric energy will be needed. However, the planet is not able to provide us anymore...

Boost-type power factor correction (PFC) rectifiers can be used in, for example, battery charging systems for Electric Vehicles (EVs). Conventionally available three-phase PFC rectifiers are limited to output 1/3 of the rated power when connected to a single-phase mains. This work presents the research into the single-phase operation of the...

The last decade has seen an immense growth in solar PV systems (both large-scale solar PV systems and distributed solar PV systems). It is expected that this growth will continue due to environmental concerns. Since conventional generators are defined by their physics and control, and solar PV systems are defined solely by their control...

Multiple solutions for solving optimal power flow (OPF) have been employed, most of them using a centralised approach. However, there is another approach where every node is responsible for the local problem in order to reach a solution: the decentralised optimal power flow (D-OPF). In this thesis, the aim was to improve the speed and...

A hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation is a cost and time effective method to develop a simulation environment of an electric vehicle's powertrain. Control algorithms can be programmed into a digital signal processor and tested with real-time simulations of electrical machines and power electronic converters, eliminating the need for developing...

The connection of offshore wind turbines to the European grid has been growing in the recent years. Many European countries are adopting this renewable energy and are increasing the number of wind power plant additions into their electrical transmission networks. Due to the phase out of conventional power plants (e.g. fossil fuel fired), new...

In order to enable the current cordless kitchen system to the 3.68 kW power level, measures needs to be taken to reduce the mains harmonics. The problem is that with the increase of the power level from 2.40 kW to 3.68 kW, the amplitude of the undesired harmonics in mains current will exceed the limit according the mains harmonics standard (IEC)...
