Wind turbines are growing bigger to becomemore cost-efficient. This does increase the severity of the vibrations that are present in the turbine blades, both due to predictable effects like wind shear and tower shadow, and due to less predictable effects like turbulence and flutter. If wind turbines are to become bigger and more cost-efficient,...

Automated Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) is a method for fast and accurate pressure control in drilling operations. The achievable performance of automated MPD is limited, firstly, by the control system and, secondly, by the hydraulics model based on which this control system is designed. Hence, an accurate hydraulics model is needed that,...

Predictive control is one of the most commonly used control methods in a variety of application areas, including hydraulic processes such as water distribution canals for irrigation. This article presents the design and application of predictive control for the water discharge entering into an irrigation canal located in Spain. First, a...

The very basis of this thesis is the collective behavior of ants in colonies. Ants are an excellent example of how rather simple behavior on a local level can lead to complex behavior on a global level that is beneficial for the individuals. The key in the self-organization of ants is communication through pheromones. When an ant forages for...

Aircraft noise perceived on the ground can be reduced by decelerating the aircraft during the landing approach. As an additional benefit the lower thrust settings existing during a part of the approach and the shorter approach time result in a reduced fuel consumption as compared to a conventional approach. This report deals with an experiment...
