Prosko, C.G. (author)
Hybrid semiconducting-superconducting mesoscopic circuits are the basis of topological and parity quantum bits or 'qubits'. Both qubits are expected to be intrinsically protected from decoherence, making them promising candidates for fault-tolerant quantum computation. As topological phases effectively manifest exotic nonabelian particles which...

This thesis conducts a series of interrelated research studies on reach probability estimation of rare events for stochastic hybrid systems. Chapter 1 explains that the motivation for these studies stems from the need to assess safety and capacity of a design for a future Air Traffic Management (ATM) concept of operations (ConOps). The safety...

Krilašević, S. (author)
Both societal and engineering systems are growing in complexity and interconnectivity, making it increasingly challenging, and sometimes impossible, to model their dynamics and behaviors. Moreover, individuals or entities within these systems, often referred to as agents, have their own objectives that may conflict with one another. Examples...

With the increasing concerns of the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants and the push towards sustainable and greener means of transportation, there is a need for new drive systems running on alternative fuels. One fuel that holds significant potential as a marine fuel for the future is methanol. When produced utilising carbon...

Event-Triggered Control (ETC) is a control method where the controller is only updated when necessary. The control inputs are kept fixed until a state-dependent event triggers their re-computation. The triggering condition is designed to guarantee the stability and desired performance of the control system. This prevents the excessive use of...

Gupta, A. (author)
Man-made systems, such as manufacturing and transportation networks, and their interactions with the environment are driven by human-designed operational rules. These rules are most often based on the asynchronous occurrence of discrete events over time, such as the arrival and departure of trains at a station. The modelling, analysis, and...

For diffusions, a well-developed approach in rare event estimation is to introduce a suitable factorization of the reach probability and then to estimate these factors through simulation of an Interacting Particle System (IPS). This paper studies IPS based reach probability estimation for General Stochastic Hybrid Systems (GSHS). The...

Dynamical systems and processes that either exhibit non-smooth behaviours (e.g. through logic control or natural phenomena) or work in different modes of operation are usually represented using hybrid systems models, i.e. mathematical models that combine continuous dynamics with discrete-event dynamics. Identification of a hybrid system...

Dynamic induction control is a wind farm flow control strategy that utilises wind turbine thrust variations to accelerate breakdown of the aerodynamic wake and improve downstream turbine performance. However, when floating wind turbines are considered, additional dynamics and challenges appear that make optimal control difficult. In this work...

Piecewise-affine (PWA) approximations are widely used among hybrid modeling frameworks as a way to increase computational efficiency in nonlinear control and optimization problems. A variety of approaches to construct PWA approximations have been proposed, most of which are tailored to specific application areas by using some prior knowledge...

In this work, we present an Opto-Electro-Mechanical Modulator (OEMM) for RF-to-optical transduction realized via an ultra-coherent nanomembrane resonator capacitively coupled to an rf injection circuit made of a microfabricated read-out able to improve the electro-optomechanical interaction. This device configuration can be embedded in a...

To achieve optimal robot behavior in dynamic scenarios we need to consider complex dynamics in a predictive manner. In the vehicle dynamics community, it is well know that to achieve time-optimal driving on low friction surface, the vehicle should utilize drifting. Hence, many authors have devised rules to split circuits and employ drifting...

Event-triggered control (ETC) is claimed to provide significant reductions in sampling frequency when compared to periodic sampling, but little is formally known about its generated traffic. This work shows that ETC can exhibit very complex, even chaotic traffic, especially when the triggering condition is aggressive in reducing...

Event-triggered control (ETC) is a major recent development in cyber–physical systems due to its capability of reducing resource utilization in networked devices. However, while most of the ETC literature reports simulations indicating massive reductions in the sampling required for control, no method so far has been capable of quantifying...

Event-triggered control (ETC) and self-triggered control (STC) are sample-and-hold control paradigms in which sensor data is only updated to the controller when necessary, often aperiodically, in contrast to the well-established periodic sampling paradigm. In ETC, a state-dependent event triggers a transmission, while in STC the controller...

The world is moving towards sustainability and there is immense pressure on Aerospace Industry to reduce its emissions to contribute to a carbon-neutral world. However, maturing gas turbine technology is a big bottleneck towards this goal and hence, this project focuses on the technical and economic feasibility of a new type of propulsion system...

Road users still encounter unnecessary delays due to inefficient traffic control in urban traffic networks. These delays are ever-increasing and have large environmental and economic consequences. In the Netherlands, most intersections are controlled using actuated controllers, which respond directly to the current traffic demand obtained from...

Ammonia (NH3) may reduce CO2 emissions from the marine industry as it is carbon-free and more energy-dense than hydrogen or batteries. Pure ammonia exhibits poor combustion characteristics, so several researchers have already operated small-scale internal combustion engines (ICEs) with ammonia-hydrogen blends. However, nitrogen oxides NOx and...

With the rise of various renewable energy sources, comes the possibility for combining the different type of sources together to balance their shortcomings. The goal is to find a renewable energy system that can be reliable year-round and be accessible for everyone. This research tries to model such a system. A model of a grid-tied PV-battery...

Active hand prostheses aid people, who suffer from an upper limb deficiency, in performing activities of daily living. The two types of active hand prostheses available are the myo-electric prosthesis and body-powered prosthesis. Even though both allow a user to grasp objects, the downsides are major. The high actuation...
