This research aims to help in solving problems experienced with system integration in early-stage ship and system design by enabling automated design space exploration for on-board energy distribution systems. An Automatic Topology Generation (ATG) tool is developed and tested to do so. The ATG tool supports system designers in making trade-off...

In this paper we consider the problem of State Estimation (SE) in large-scale, 3-phase coupled, unbalanced distribution systems. More specifically, we address the problem of including mixed real-time measurements, synchronized and unsynchronized, from phasor measurement units and smart meters, into existing SE solutions. We propose a...

In decentralized applications requirements on latency are high. For instance, in trading
applications a millisecond latency advantage can save companies millions of dollars. In
this thesis a design is proposed for an overlay in a decentralized peer-to-peer system
that lowers the latency between connected peers. The overlay is...

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time,
and provides both entertainment and education to people around the globe.
One of the main challenges in gaming is increasing the scalability of these games to support the large numbers of players they attract.
Minecraft-like games make this challenge even more difficult by...

We sampled the tap water of seven unique, full-scale drinking water distribution systems at different locations as well as the corresponding treatment plant effluents to evaluate the impact of distribution and the potential presence of a core drinking water microbiome. The water was also sampled during network flushing to examine its effect on...

Business processes are part of every company’s daily business. In the past hundreds of years, almost every aspect in the operation of businesses has seen a two-pronged transformation: first, toward defining and then following processes, and second, toward making the processes efficient through the use of technology.
In this work, we define a...

Increased use of the distribution grid due to the uptake of distributed energy resources and the expected penetrations of Electrical Vehicles (EVs) could lead to congestion problems in the distribution grid. Congestion refers to issues related to the overheating of components or voltage issues in the distribution network. Avoiding these issues...

Rise in distributed energy resources has prompted a shift in the way electricity market operators function. Traditionally, centralized optimization techniques are used by such operators to plan for economic dispatches of power tominimize the overall operational costs and increase system social welfare. Due to the dispersed nature of renewable...

The environmental and social impact of the energy generation and distribution industry on the biosphere is negative or unknown due to a lack of supply chain transparency. For electricity and gas distribution system operators (DSOs), the opportunity to contribute significantly to more environmental and social sustainable development in the energy...

Blockchain systems have the potential to decentralise many traditionally centralised systems. However, scalability remains a key challenge. Without a horizontally scalable solution, where performance increases by adding more nodes to the system, blockchain systems remain unsuitable for ubiquitous use. We design a novel blockchain system called...

AbstractDue to an increasing number of power generation units and load devices operating with direct current (DC) at distribution level, there is a potential benefit of leading efforts toward building a DC distribution system. However, the implementation of DC distribution systems faces important challenges, including the market inertia of AC...

In the near future many tasks could be performed by swarms of flying robots. To successfully implement multiple of these swarms in the same airspace they will have to be decentralised, autonomously cope with high densities and even resolve conflicting objectives of other swarms, while remaining controllable by operators through high-level...

The main research question that this research seeks to answer is: What are the factors that are perceived to be important for the performance of venturing units at Dutch distribution network operators? Factors found in the literature that impact the performance of this venturing units can be divided into three parts: factors from an...

Massively Multiplayer Online Games are played by millions of people from around the world who play together in large virtual environments. With sometimes even a million gamers playing the same game, the load on the virtual environments they play in needs to be distributed between servers to deal with this many players. Several techniques have...

There are two key components for high throughput distributed anonymizing applications. The first key component is overhead due to message complexity of the utilized algorithms. The second key component is an nonscalable architecture to deal with this high throughput. These issues are compounded by the need for anonymization. Using a state of the...

DC distribution systems (DCDS) connect local generators and loads directly. By avoiding unnecessary losses in AC-DC conversion, DCDS offers higher energy efficiency. Since different parties in a DCDS may have conflicting goals, matching between power supply and demand should be done with carefully designed allocation rules and monetary transfers...

Biofilm formation, loose deposit accumulation and water quality deterioration in drinking water distribution systems have been widely reported. However, the accumulation and distribution of harbored elements and microbes in the different niches (loose deposits, PVC-U biofilm, and HDPE biofilm) and their corresponding potential contribution to...

For electricity grids with an increasing share of intermittent renewables, the power generation mix can have significant daily variations. This leads to time-dependent emission intensities and volatile electricity prices in the day-ahead and spot market tariffs that can be better utilised by energy intensive industries such as water supply...

Otte, P. (author)
In this thesis, the problem of estimating trust in distributed systems is considered. Distributed systems can be virtual or real-world systems in which multiple agents interact. One of the biggest problems in distributed systems is that they only function well if everyone contributes some resources. If agents do not participate, or try to...
