Cherat, Naajein (author)
Fault ride-through capability studies of MMCHVDC connected wind power plants have focused primarily on the DC link and onshore AC grid faults. Offshore AC faults, mainly asymmetrical faults have not gained much attention in the literature despite being included in the future development at national levels in the ENTSO-E HVDC code. The proposed...

Dust emissions developed during the handling of dry bulk products pose increased risks for health, safety and the environment. Legislation drives bulk handling facilities to face the challenge of maintaining dust emissions within limitations. At the bulk terminal of Verbrugge multiple bulk products are handled, making the dust control problem...

Architecture is much more than just built forms on a piece of land. Architecture hinges on user experience and comfort. As such, it is up to us, as designers and engineers to be mindful of the quality of the conceptualized space.<br/><br/>Building physics is one such field that addresses the concerns of users. It outlines topics that play an...

Quad-planes combine hovering and vertical takeoff and landing capability with fast and efficient forward flight. Regular Quad-planes with dedicated pusher motor can be subject to gust disturbances, and are not well-equipped to deal with actuator faults. Dual-axis Tilt-Rotor quad-planes are more maneuverable due to their overactuation. This also...

This research addresses the challenge of improving aerodynamic performance by delaying flow separation using deployable vortex generators (VGs) actuated by shape memory alloys. These VGs combine passive and active elements to enhance mixing within the boundary layer, restoring momentum near the wall and minimizing separation in an Adverse...

The speed and precision required in the precision motion industry is an ever-growing challenge. Linear control offers intuitive frequency-domain controller design methods that are based on a frequency response function (FRF) of the plant, which is obtained solely from measurement data. Unsurprisingly, linear controllers account for over 90% of...

Sun, B. (author)
Advancements in aerial vehicles have presented new challenges for flight control system design. The disturbed airflow caused by rotors and flapping wings and the nonlinearity and uncertainty increased by morphing components impede the identification of a globally accurate model of these vehicles. Additionally, complex components can increase the...

Loss-of-Control (LoC) is the primary cause of drone crashes, necessitating efficient onboard prevention systems that are effective in terms of sensor requirements, computing power, and memory. This study introduces a data-driven approach for detecting LoC in quadrotors, using Critical Slowing Down (CSD) theory as an Early Warning Signal (EWS) of...

Neglecting actuator dynamics in nonlinear control and control allocation can lead to performance degradation, especially when considering fast dynamic systems. This thesis provides a novel method to account for actuator dynamics in the control allocation solution, dynamic incremental nonlinear control allocation, or D-INCA. The incremental...

<div>With fuel cells making their way into the maritime sector, cooling systems are becoming a more important aspect of ship design with regard to power saving. Because fuel cells generate heat at a lower temperature, they require a cooling system that is comparatively larger than that of conventional power trains. Ship cooling system research...

High-precision mechatronic equipment often benefits from or even needs vibration isolation to function within specification. Examples of such equipment include metrology devices, space instrumentation and lithography assemblies. Vibration isolation is often the function of the mounting between the equipment and the floor or rest of the machine....
