We design a distributed algorithm for learning Nash equilibria over time-varying communication networks in a partial-decision information scenario, where each agent can access its own cost function and local feasible set, but can only observe the actions of some neighbors. Our algorithm is based on projected pseudo-gradient dynamics, augmented...

Opposition-control of the energetic cycle of near wall streaks in wall-bounded turbulence, using numerical approaches, has shown promise for drag reduction. For practical implementation, real-time opposition control is only realizable if there is a degree of coherence between the turbulent velocities passing a sensor and the target point...

An experimental study on broadband noise scattered by permeable trailing edges with different pore arrangements is performed. A NACA 0018 airfoil with chord c = 0.2 m is investigated at chord-based Reynolds numbers ranging from 1.4 × 10<sup>5</sup> to 3.8 × 10<sup>5</sup> and angles of attack of 0.2 and 5.4 degrees. Noise emission from five...

A task for new power generation technologies, interfaced to the electrical grid by power electronic converters, is to stiffen the rate of change of frequency (RoCoF) at the initial few milliseconds (ms) after any variation of active power balance. This task is defined in this article as fast active power regulation (FAPR), a generic definition...

Open-loop wake steering inconsistently improves the energy yield of wind farms in field experiments in the literature. This thesis matures wind farm control technologies for power maximization in a model-based closed-loop framework towards real-world practical applicability. Firstly, open-loop wake steering is evaluated on a commercial onshore...

The aim of this thesis is to derive bicycle rider control models, based on experimental data, that mimic the rider in his balance control task at various forward speeds. These rider control models can help to understand cyclists falls, improve training techniques, assess the handling properties of new bicycle designs and create active balance...

Mulders, S.P. (author)
In the last decades, tremendous efforts have been put in advancements of wind turbine technology by scientific research and industrial developments. One of the focal areas has been the upscaling of turbines to increase power capacity. However, by enlarging turbine sizes, the square-cube law dictates rising costs per unit of power capacity. To...

POLDERS are low-lying and artificially drained areas surrounded bywater storage canals. In low-lying delta areas such as theMississippi delta in Louisiana (USA), the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta (Bangladesh), or the Rhine-Meuse delta (The Netherlands), polders experience surface water salinization problem due to saline groundwater exfiltration,...
