For vehicles equipped with continuous variable transmissions (CVT) higher standards regarding noise and vibration reduction are demanded. Research by Bosch Transmission Technology (Bosch) has shown that there is a relation between noise and vibrations originating from the differential of the driveline and pushpart vibrations inside the CVT....

Recent projections estimate that the Netherlands needs circa 33 GW of offshore wind capacity in the North Sea to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. To this end, the Dutch government has very ambitious plans to create new wind sites far from shore and integrate that power generation to the high-voltage power grid in the next years. Due to the...

As heating forms a large share of the primary energy consumption in the Netherlands, district heating networks are regarded as an effective means to address the emissions- and renewable energy targets. In the Province of Zuid-Holland, the aim is to construct a large-scale regional open heat network that should create a more sustainable built...

Rotational electric actuators are the most popular choice for actuation in modern day automation. These actuators are commonly used in combination with a transmission system. In this paper, the development of a new rotational to linear transmission technology, called the ring screw, is described, and its real-world performance is evaluated...

In 2050, the Netherlands’ goal is to have a fully renewable energy mix, mainly composed of solar and wind energy to supply electricity. In this way, the country will meet the environmental targets to reduce the carbon emissions by 90%. The offshore wind installed capacity in the Netherlands was approved to increase to 11.5 GW by 2030. In the...

This thesis focuses on electronic transport modelling in molecular junctions. The most common technique for modelling electron transport is the combination of Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Non-Equilibrium Green's Function's (NEGF). Conventional DFT+NEGF methods are, however, invalid for correctly modelling junctions under a bias voltage. ...

This thesis describes the design and prototyping results of a low power wireless power transfer (WPT) system. In particular the design and testing of a transmitter.

Firstly, existing research is discussed and it is found that a significant part of this discusses higher power transfer systems. Here lies the challenge for this thesis: to...

Nanocatalysis has received considerable attention in the scientific community due to their superior reactivity compared to their macro-sized counterparts. MEMS nanoreactors allow scientists to view these reactions in-situ. This opens up doors to finally understanding the underlying mechanisms of the nanocatalyst's effectiveness, which may...

Ever since the commercial growth of PV installations, soiling has been a crucial factor to decrease its performance ratio. Environmental factors such as irradiation, wind, rainfall, and back module temperature affect the yield of a system, but, in many environments, soiling of PV modules carries the largest impact. Cost effective soiling...

EU climate goals force EU member states to increase the share of renewable electricity generation in their respective electricity markets. To reach these climate goals, offshore wind energy is regarded as one of the main technologies that can contribute to a full transition towards a fossil-free electricity system. Furthermore, 230 Gigawatts (GW...

Transmission electron microscopy is a powerful and commonly used tool to study nanoparticles, nanowires and 2D materials. It provides static information from the sample with atomic resolution, in high vacuum and at ambient temperature. However, in real processes, the environment is often different and dynamic.

MEMS-based sample...

It is expected that DC grids will evolve into large meshed networks, which will have multiple DC voltage levels. Two DC grids operating at different voltage levels could be interconnected using a DC-DC converter. The role of the DC-DC converter in meshed DC networks is similar to the role of a transformer in traditional AC systems. The DC-DC...

Outage scheduling for maintenance in asset management of electrical transmission and distribution system plays an important role in power system reliability. For instance, failure probability of transmission line may change from time to time due to exogenous conditions. Impact of failure or service interruption can be described by using...

European countries are showing their willingness to reduce their greenhouse gases emissions in the coming years. For example, the Paris agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is one of the most crucial steps that countries have signed recently. The aim is to cause a lower global temperature increase,...

A meshed North Sea offshore electricity grid with high renewable energy penetration, as envisioned by the European Commission, is still at its infancy. Currently, point-to-point high-voltage DC interconnections across borders are already being implemented successfully, but the next steps of expanding these interconnectors with additional...

Structural vibrations are a known cause of damage to offshore structures and equipment. A Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) is a dredge vessel known to vibrate heavily during operation. Primary cause of these vibrations is the cutting process, performed to cut and excavate soil from the seabed. A component prone to damage is the cutter ladder, a...
