This paper presents challenges in the control of 5GDHC networks and proposes an approach for the robust control design of these networks. Temperatures are low and temperature differences are small in 5GDHC networks, in order to minimise heat losses in the distribution network and directly utilise low-temperature heat sources. Therefore, the...

The urge to reduce the dependence on natural gas for heating at the residential level has led to the deployment of different fossil fuel-free alternatives. In the Netherlands, two technologies are leading the transition: heat pumps, due to their high COP, and photovoltaic–thermal systems, due to their dual electric-thermal output. However,...

As more and more solar panels are installed on households, a problem arises when the power from the solar panels fluctuating throughout the day due to clouds passing over the solar panels. This in turn causes voltage flickers in the household, which can be visible/irritable to the human eye and damage appliances in the household. These voltage...

As of 2021, China's newly installed photovoltaic (PV) capacity has topped the world for nine consecutive years. Considering that the general life of crystalline silicon PV modules is 25 years, in the near future, China will face a wave of decommissioning of waste PV modules. Therefore, it is crucial to develop and improve China's PV module...
