One of the world’s biggest concerns is global warming, a solution to this can be wind energy. Offshore wind energy has advantages over onshore wind energy, however, the levelized cost of energy is higher. The maintenance costs are a major cost contributor. To lower these costs, research is performed on faults and its detection. Currently, little...

This thesis presents a novel data-driven Fault Detection and Isolation algorithm for the public network of Electric Vehicle chargers of Tritium Ltd. Pty. The proposed solution is robust against marginal differences in data distribution as well as marginal changes over time due the state-of-the-art optimization techniques used. This is required...

Performance of set based fault detection is highly dependent on the complexity of the set bounding methods used to bound the healthy residual set. Existing methods achieve robust performance with complex set bounding that narrowly define healthy system behavior, yet at the cost of higher computation times. In this thesis a major improvement is...

Spacecraft require high availability, autonomous operation, and a high degree of mission success. Spacecraft use sensors, such as star trackers and GPS, and actuators, such as reaction wheels, to reach and maintain a correct attitude and position. Failures in these components will have a significant negative impact on the success of the mission,...

Low voltage direct current (LVDC) networks used as electricity distribution systems for a community have the potential of operating at higher efficiencies and can integrate various distributed renewable energy sources and storage elements. However, their emergence is being hindered due to the lack of reliable fault protection techniques. DC...

This Thesis presents the design and implementation of a preliminary Fault Detection Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) architecture for LUMIO, a CubeSat mission to the Moon. The baseline of the FDIR is the Failure Modes Effects (and Criticality) Analysis (FMEA/FMECA) of the mission, through which the potential failure scenarios are classified. The...

Current and future space missions require agile and reliable spacecraft capable of trailing and keeping the required attitude. Most of the agile spacecraft missions are near-Earth based but some are placed far away from Earth and its influence. One example of such missions is the Athena mission, which requires the spacecraft to perform fast and...

The increasing complexity of mechanical systems has resulted in an increased usage and dependence on data driven modelling techniques in order to obtain simple yet accurate models of these systems. Neural networks have emerged as a popular modelling choice due to their proven ability to learn complex nonlinear relationships between inputs and...

Autonomous driving is a development that has gained a lot of attention lately, because it can lead to major improvements in the mobility sector. One example of a research project that aims to develop vehicles that are capable of reaching the highest level of autonomy in driving, is the WEpods project. The goal of this research is in line with...

Wind farms are currently built in the North Sea in the Netherlands. The grid connecting the off-shore wind farm to the main-land distribution grid must be protected against short-circuits and other electrical disturbances. In this project is studied if electrical protection of a grid is suitable for grids connecting renewable energy sources to...

Wind energy has emerged as a promising alternative to fossil fuel energy sources over the last two decades partly due to considerable reductions in the cost of power production. A common trend towards cost reduction has been to build larger and lighter wind turbines. These produce more power per unit and use less material. Another strategy for...

Over the past years, the automotive industry has seen a constantly increasing level of automation of automotive vehicles. This increasing level of automation contributes to an increasing safety in traffic and a reduction of traffic congestions due tio faster response times and higher reliability, with respect to the human driver. The automation...

Heat pumps represent an effective technology to convert electrical energy to thermal energy through the expansion and compression of a refrigerant. Heat pumps are becoming increasingly more efficient<br/>which decreases energy consumption. However as heat pumps are getting increasingly more efficient, complexity is also increasing which leads to...

The Ampelmann system offers a safe and reliable solution for offshore access. As safety is a key factor, an extensive safety and warning management system is employed which accommodates for different fault types that may occur. Accommodation of sensor failure in the Ampelmann system is currently done through switching to a redundant component....

Infant mortality is a significant problem in mooring design. The objective of this thesis is to design a generic fault detection system for mooring line failures, which can accurately detect a mooring line failure within a certain time frame. The research is done through Catenary Arm Leg Mooring (CALM) buoy systems, as this thesis is a Proof of...

With the increasing introduction of DER in the everyday energy landscape, it becomes essential that a partial transition from AC to DC within the whole range of voltage levels has to be re-considered especially in practical cases where DC system performance seems outstanding compared to AC based counterparts. On that note, LVDC microgrids have...

Communication is fundamental to human nature and underlies many of its successes as a species. In recent decades, the adoption of increasingly abstract software languages has supported many advances in computer science and software engineering. Although in many regards distinct from natural language, software language has proven surprisingly...
