Si-based anode materials in Li-ion batteries (LIBs) suffer from severe volume expansion/contraction during repetitive discharge/charge, which results in the pulverization of active materials, continuous growth of solid electrolyte interface (SE!) layers, loss of electrical conduction, and, eventually, battery failure. Herein, we present...

Growing concern about global warming and climate change intensified the research into more efficient ways of operation in the maritime industry. These researches triggered the use of electrical batteries in hybrid systems. Van Oord aims to operate more efficiently, which implies using less fuel and thus emitting less carbon dioxide. A way to...

Voltage drop and rise at network peak and off-peak periods are one of the major power quality problems in low voltage distribution networks. Additionally, the ever increasing demand for electricity along with the other requirements are driving modern day power systems towards more distributed generation (DG). Integration of large scale DG can be...

The energy transition is characterised by the growth of intermittent and thus non-steerable energy sources such as solar photovoltaic and wind. The technology development in the PV sector enables consumers to move beyond passive consumption of electricity towards becoming active producers of their own energy. This led to an increasing number of...

The thesis proposes a controller that enables microgrids to have a modular structure, to be flexible in terms of linked energy consumers and resources, and to offer the possibility of prioritized demand side management, while avoiding the need of employing a dedicated communication network. For this, the control strategy applies droop control,...

One of the main goals in lithium ion battery electrode design is to increase the power density. This requires insight in the relation between the complex heterogeneous microstructure existing of active material, conductive additive and electrolyte providing the required electronic and Li-ion transport. FIB-SEM is used to determine the three...

Heerema Marine Contractors operates large crane vessels, which are exploited for installation works in the offshore oil and gas industry. The benchmark power system of these crane vessels is diesel electric meaning that the main engines are driving alternators for generating electric power. But due to spiky power demand and strict redundancy...

Recently, the idea of using fuel cell vehicles as the future way of producing electricity has emerged. A fuel cell car has all the necessary devices on board to convert the chemical energy of hydrogen into electricity. This paper considers a scenario where a parking lot for fuel cell cars acts as a virtual power plant. In order to describe the...

Dynamic charging of electric vehicles (EV) refers to charging the EV using variable charging power. This is important for applications where the EV is charged from intermittent renewable energy sources like wind or solar. Dynamic charging can be implemented using three standards - AC charging, DC charging via Chademo and CCS/COMBO. This paper...

Discharge capacity is an important factor that determines the performance of lithium ion battery. The internal resistance of the electrodes influence the discharge capacity. As the electrode geometry influences its resistance, topology optimization can be applied to determine the electrode shape such that it has a minimal internal resistance and...

Lithium silicon (Li-Si) batteries offer more than ten times the theoretical specific capacity compared to current lithium ion battery technologies, by using a silicon anode. In practice however, the cycle life of Li-Si batteries is very limited. The large volume change of the silicon anode is known to be the main reason for this. Research on the...

Currently PV modules are positioned to receive the highest amount of incident radiation in a year. Therefore, the generation pattern is independent of the consumption and a large storage is required to compensate for the same. This paper studies the possibility of orienting the modules differently in order to match the consumption more efficiently.
