The world is faced with two concurrent trends. The first is the growing demand for air travel in the long term. The second is the need to cut aircraft emissions due to environmental goals and ambitions set by authorities. Fully-electric aircraft are currently infeasible due to the limited battery specific energy and power. Hybrid-electric...

In this thesis project, it is investigated to what extent the energy consumption of an electric aircraft can be improved by using a variable pitch and RPM propeller, including energy recuperation during the descent, with respect to a constant pitch propeller. The largest percentage of total mission energy saved using the variable pitch propeller...

Development of a visual prosthesis has the potential to help millions of patients with visual impairment around the world. One approach of visual prostheses is intracortical stimulation, where electrodes penetrating the visual cortex are used to create small light dots in the patients visual field. Said therapy requires an implantable...

Approximately 15-20% of theworld population is aected by tinnitus, a hearing condition associated with phantomsound perception. A large number of suerers experience a severe level of tinnitus and they are not ableto conduct a normal life because they develop insomnia, depression, and distress.Extensive research has been made to study its...

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...

Accurately forecasting charging demand is a major factor in energy providers’ ability to meet said demand. A number of methods have been proposed in the literature. This master thesis aims to provide a framework for energy providers to forecast charging demand due to increased EV adoption. Specifically, this research examines the effects that...

Due to the high-efficiency potential over 40%, the two-terminal (2T) perovskite/c-Si tandem solar cell becomes a desirable and promising candidate for solar cells. The photovoltaic materials and devices (PVMD) group in TU Delft has developed the c-Si solar cell using poly-SiOx as carrier-selective passivating contacts. The utilization of poly...

Although electric vehicles were first used as early as the 19th century, they have only recently gained popularity. By charging them with renewable sources, electric vehicles present a route to zero or low emission mobility. This is a significant reason for their recent popularity given the climate crisis. However, the integration of electric...

Air transport is facing an important challenge when it comes to the reduction of its environmental footprint. Hybrid electric aircraft offer a potential solution to reduce in-flight emissions. The essence of hybrid electric aircraft is to combine multiple energy sources and energy conversion systems, in order to improve the overall energy...

In the pursuit of gaining a better understanding of the mechanisms of oxide-electrolyte interfaces, this thesis presents a working model that mimics a dynamic surface charge distribution by introducing protonation and deprotonation events using MD simulation. Due to the limitations of measurement equipment that operate on an atomic scale,...

By analysing existing agent-based model (ABM) charging behaviour formalisations, this study evaluates the impact of a new static band-width network tariff structure on charging demand. Additionally, this approach enables a comparative study to reflect upon the susceptibility and value of the ABM method. Based on the simulation results, this...

Jorna, Nienke (author)
Renewable energy sources like wind and solar, are intermittent, which means demand will not always match supply causing volatile and sometimes even negative electricity prices. For power companies it will be valuable to invest in technologies that can respond to those prices, which will result in an increasing flexibility of demand. However, to...

The shipping industry contributes significantly to the global greenhouse gas emissions due to the use of cheap fossil fuels. The booming cruise ship industry is forced to reduce the emitted greenhouse gases and emission of carbon dioxide to be able to access remote areas with higher restrictions and to comply with upcoming regulations. Fuel...

The overarching goal of Engineered Heart Tissues (EHTs) is to develop functional 3D heart tissues in vitro with the potential to find drug targets, identify drug toxicity and predict the effects of the drugs in the body. This 3D model of the cardiac tissue consists of a bunch of cells, self-assembled around specific anchoring points the main aim...

The municipal of Amsterdam plans to implement a zero emission (ZE) zone by 2025. A plan is required to implement a battery electric truck (BET) charging infrastructure. To derive at the preferred feasible BET charging infrastructures, the research assesses the available BET, available charging methods, stakeholder perception, and BET energy...

The penetration of renewable energy sources is increasing every year and that poses a lot of challenges in the distribution system. Since they are intermittent in nature, they cannot serve the energy demand as stand alone sources without the help of storage technologies or stable energy sources. As the RES, especially the Photo Voltaic...

Transport sector CO2 emissions are on the rise and responsible for nearly 30% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions (European Parliament,2019). An attractive way to reduce the CO2 emissions by transport is by changing the fuel used. Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in a clean, secure and affordable energy future (IEA). However, a clean,...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is a new generation of wind energy technology which uses tethered kites to reach the stronger and steadier high altitude wind resource. Research and development of AWE has been accelerated in the last two decades. Around 40 institutions around the world are working on their own concepts and architectures of the...

The current city charging network for electric vehicle (EV) is mainly composed of low-speed charging points. When the number of EVs increase dramatically in the future, the current charging network needs to be upgraded with more charging stations and fast-charging (FC) facilities. We build a mixed-integer programming (MIP) model to propose an...

In this thesis we introduce valuation techniques to price electricity storage contracts, where the electricity prices follow a structural model based on polynomial processes. In particular we focus on a Fourier-based pricing method known as the COS method, which performs impressively to price the contracts accurately. We provide details on how...
