The drilling industry faces the challenge of moving away from conventional maintenance strategies to maximise operational efficiency. This thesis introduces a holistic approach to land drilling rig Predictive Maintenance (PdM), integrating component maintenance into system-level decision-making. By taking the operations of the whole system into...

This article describes an extension of the well-known model reference adaptive control (MRAC) approach. The extension relies on explicitly involving the tracking error in the feedback control law: it is shown that including this term along with its appropriate extra adaptive gain allows one to handle possibly unstable reference dynamics....

In multi-agent systems reaching consensus has been a long-standing problem. A considerable amount of research has been focused on how event-triggered consensus can be used to limit the energy consumption of the communication system while still ensuring convergence to the neighbourhood of a point or a formation. These algorithms rely on having...

Besides facing the same challenges as single-agent systems, the distributed nature of complex multi-agent systems sparks many questions and problems revolving around the constraints imposed by communication. The idea that multi-agent systems require communication to access information, to coordinate or simply to sense the environment they are...

The aviation industry has set an ambitious goal of reducing its climate impacts. Accordingly, airlines must balance their plans according to this goal with financial considerations. We developed a multi-objective framework to facilitate climate-aware network design by incorporating the objective to minimise the flight average temperature...

This work presents a coalitional model predictive controller for collaborative vehicle platoons. The overall system is modeled as a string of locally controlled vehicles that can share data through a wireless communication network. The vehicles can dynamically form disjoint groups that coordinate their actions, i.e., the so-called coalitions....

A fundamental open problem in monotone game theory is the computation of a specific generalized Nash equilibrium (GNE) among all the available ones, e.g. the optimal equilibrium with respect to a system-level objective. The existing GNE seeking algorithms have in fact convergence guarantees toward an arbitrary, possibly inefficient,...

This paper presents a decentralized Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning (MARL) approach to an incentive-based Demand Response (DR) program, which aims to maintain the capacity limits of the electricity grid and prevent grid congestion by financially incentivizing residential consumers to reduce their energy consumption. The proposed approach...

Gaussian Process (GP) is a flexible non-parametric method which has a wide variety of applications e.g., field estimation using multi-agent systems. However, the training of the hyperparameters suffers from high computational complexity. Recently, distributed hyperparameter optimization with proximal gradients has been proposed to reduce...

We address the generalized Nash equilibrium seeking problem for a population of agents playing aggregative games with affine coupling constraints. We focus on semi-decentralized communication architectures, where there is a central coordinator able to gather and broadcast signals of aggregative nature to the agents. By exploiting the...

In this article, we propose a bilateral peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading scheme under single-contract and multi-contract market setups, both as an assignment game, a special class of coalitional games. The proposed market formulation allows for efficient computation of a market equilibrium while keeping the desired economic properties...

In agent-based negotiations, it is crucial to understand the opponent’s behavior and predict its bidding pattern to act strategically. Foreseeing the utility of the opponent’s coming offer provides valuable insight to the agent so that it can decide its next move wisely. Accordingly, this paper addresses predicting the opponent’s coming...

In this paper, we solve the problem of learning a generalized Nash equilibrium (GNE) in merely monotone games. First, we propose a novel continuous semi-decentralized solution algorithm without projections that uses first-order information to compute a GNE with a central coordinator. As the second main contribution, we design a gain...

Building on prior works on explanation negotiation protocols, this paper proposes a general-purpose protocol for multi-agent systems where recommender agents may need to provide explanations for their recommendations. The protocol specifies the roles and responsibilities of the explainee and the explainer agent and the types of information...

With the world’s population recently surpassing the 8 billion mark, population growth poses significant challenges on the planet. This growth is particularly evident in urban areas, and as a consequence, cities must find innovative ways to accommodate the increasing pressure on the current road infrastructure. In Amsterdam, a city with an...

We consider energy systems in the built environment. With the transition to a more sustainable, distributed, and 'smart' energy system, such local grids are undergoing significant changes. Among other developments, the new role of end-users as 'prosumers' - users that can either produce or consume power depending on the situation - is turning...

After the Second World War, chemical warfare agents and munitions were dumped in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.<br/>In order to assess the severity of the environmental consequences, it is important that the chemical warfare agents are located and their condition is investigated as soon as possible.<br/>In order to reduce this time, the...

This thesis deals with the adaptive control of interconnected systems and multi-agent systems, where adaptive control is used to deal with the presence of uncertainties. Generally, two types of uncertainties can occur. The first one is parametric uncertainty, which is most commonly addressed in the literature, and for which several design...

This work is focused on the distributed system, i.e. Multi-agent Systems (MAS), with application in environmental monitoring and learning. The specific task is to develop algorithms, i.e. Gaussian Process (GP), that are robust, accurate and fully-distributed to learn the unknown spatial environmental field. The two main problems are (1). how to...

Inspired by the vision of fully autonomous airside operations at Schiphol airport, this study aims to contribute to the short-term goal of automated aircraft ground handling. In this research, we design and evaluate a multi-agent system for planning of automated ground handling. There are two main components in the system, task allocation...
