Weather forecast agencies periodically provide information on potential typhoon behavior from its formation to dissipation. This information can be used to pre-position relief goods in areas that are potentially affected by a strong incoming typhoon. The uncertainty of the typhoon behavior with respect to a point location decreases over time,...

To reduce global warming and air pollution, the maritime industry is searching for solutions to reduce fuel consumption. This thesis focuses on the reduction of generator running hours and fuel consumption of Dynamically Positioned (DP) vessels. In this ship type, redundancy of the power generation system is regularly achieved by running on one...

The volatile production of renewable energy sources is often considered a key issue in future sustainable energy systems. Drawing on microgrid research, we argue that the potential synergy between microgrid energy management and provision of flexibility services to the wider grid could be further explored. In addition, the trade-off between cost...

This research presents a method that can be used to prevent shortages of available trolleys in the floriculture supply chain. There should always be a sufficient number of trolleys available at all floriculture auction locations. However, in the current system, there are problems with availability of the trolleys and the trolleys movements are...

This thesis discusses forecasting periodic time series using Wavenets with an application in financial time series. Conventional neural networks used for forecasting such as the LSTM and the full convolutional network (FCN) are computationally expensive. The Wavenet uses dilated convolutions which significantly reduces the computational cost...

This study improves the Short term wind power forecasting to help bid the wind power in the electricity market. Supplying power lesser/greater than the expected power creates imbalance in the Electricity system. Hence electricity markets impose penalty for supplying power lesser/greater than expected power. Bidding right amount of power is an...

Given the observable characteristics of a passenger in an airport, is it possible to predict their behaviour? This thesis researches the possibilities for finding behavioural classes that can help predict passenger behaviour in a passenger demand forecast (PDF) system that is developed for the European PASSME project. The thesis introduces a...

Service logistics companies aim for their high value capital assets to be operationally available, to prevent lost revenues and customer dissatisfaction. To assure this maintenance is performed, and therefore spare parts are required. An important activity is to have spare parts available when they are demanded for conducting maintenance....

Coastal inundation models are benefited by timeliness of the predictions, not only when it comes to real-time forecasting but also considering risk assessment studies and sensitivity analysis. Numerical models however are often subjected to a trade-off between accuracy and efficiency, especially when dealing with large geographic scales. In this...

This thesis proposes a methodology towards quantifying the uncertainty resulting from the density and spatial arrangement of samples and assessing their effect on forecasting key performance indicators, related to dredging and (wet) mining operations. Aside from quantifying this uncertainty, another objective of this research is to develop a...

In this study the prediction of stratocumulus occurrence by the Large-Eddy Simulation model DALES was investigated. The performance of DALES was compared with that of the large-scale weather model RACMO. A method was developed which can consistently initialise the model by assimilation of observations in addition to large-scale weather model...

In the past forty years, the volume of air travel has increased tenfold. While demand growth for OECD markets has slowed down in recent years, there is still a potential for markets where air services are currently not provided. It is the goal of the airline network development process to locate these potentially profitable markets. One of the...

When harsh weather conditions are expected during an offshore pipeline operation, the decision to start the abandonment procedure has to be taken based on pipeline integrity limits. The pipeline integrity which is analysed by a maximum design sea state does not correspond to the situation offshore, because sea states always occur in a different...

Dockwise started in 2008 with the OCTOPUS motion monitoring and captain decision support system for performance optimization and bad weather routing capacity. The OCTOPUS-Onboard system gathers weather and motion data, which is collected in the OCTOPUS database. This database includes the encountered weather data and the measured accelerations...
