At present, the energy transition is increasingly being driven by the integration of renewable energy into the grid. However, this weather-dependent energy generation imposes challenges to the system operators since the deviations between the forecasted and the actual generation keep increasing due to this intermittent generation. Moreover, new...

During the last decades of explosive growth in economic value on the Internet, we observe the trend of platformization: a shift of economic activity from happening on a wide range of companies to a few major platforms run by Big Tech corporations. This trend is highly susceptible to the rise of monopolies and oligarchs, as...

Intensive urbanisation enhances warming of cities’ ambient and subsoil environment. The local drinking water distribution system (DWDS) is likewise affected. Hotspots of anthropogenic heating were perceived to influence drinking water temperature and pose a threat for microbial drinking water quality. Information on temporal and spatial relation...

DC distribution systems are a promising alternative to existing AC distribution systems. They connect customers to local energy sources without conversion, thus reducing power losses. However, the unique features of DC impose strict requirements for system operation compared to AC. Within the context of a liberalized energy market, this...

Real-time hydraulic modelling can be used to address a wide range of issues in a foul sewer system and hence can help improve its daily operation and maintenance. However, the current bottleneck within real-time FSS modelling is the lack of spatio-temporal inflow data. To address the problem, this paper proposes a new method to develop real...

Drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs) have been thoroughly studied, but the concept of thermal energy recovery from DWDSs is very new and has been conceptualized in the past few years. Cold recovery results in a temperature increase of the drinking water. Its effects on drinking water quality and biofilm development are unclear. Hence, we...

The accelerated digitalisation of society along with technological evolution have extended the geographical span of cyber-physical systems. Two main threats have made the reliable and real-time control of these systems challenging: (i) uncertainty in the communication infrastructure induced by scale, and heterogeneity of the environment and...

Drinking water safety is of great concern all around the world. Two strategies can be pursued to maintain biological stable drinking water during distribution in the network: (i) without a residual disinfectant, in which bacterial growth is controlled by very low biodegradable nutrients in the water by extensive pre-treatment and a well...

This thesis represents the culmination of six months of research into the investment behavior of Dutch DSO’s in the context of the energy transition. Through a combination of interviews, analyses of annual reports and a qualitative analyses based on principal-agent theory, I tried to find the effect of the actor network, regulatory regime and...

Monitoring software behaviour is being done in various ways. Log messages are being output by almost any kind of running software system. Therefore, learning how software behaves from doing analysis over log data can lead to new insights about the system. However, the number of log messages in a computer system grow fast, and analysing the log...

The rise of e-commerce has led to a congested last-mile delivery paradigm. Increasing customer expectations have pushed carriers into a delivery market with diminishing profitability. Furthermore, the current state of last-mile delivery has high societal costs in congestion and environmental impact. To address these challenges, scientists in the...

By analysing existing agent-based model (ABM) charging behaviour formalisations, this study evaluates the impact of a new static band-width network tariff structure on charging demand. Additionally, this approach enables a comparative study to reflect upon the susceptibility and value of the ABM method. Based on the simulation results, this...

Naval ships need to be able to conduct missions in a variety of circumstances. This includes the ability to fulfil specific tasks in a damaged state. Vulnerability reduction measures are taken during the early stage distributed ship system design process, to ensure the availability of the required systems in damaged state. Traditionally these...

Big data applications are becoming more commonplace due to an abundance of digital data and increasingly powerful hardware. One of these classes of hardware devices are FPGAs, which are being used today in various ways such as data centers and embedded systems. High performance, power efficiency, and reprogrammability are the primary reasons...

Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is a new paradigm in digital identity systems that puts the end-user in control: no other actor manages, permits or revokes their digital existence. TrustChain is an academic peer-to-peer networking stack supporting SSI. It delivers passport-grade assurance by integrating with Dutch government....

The aim of this project is to improve the scalability of the Opencraft server. The Opencraft server is based on an open-source implementation of the vanilla Minecraft server. This thesis focuses on improving the messaging system of the Opencraft server. The existing implementation of the messaging system is very basic. It went through all online...

Improving the resilience of water distribution systems (WDSs) to handle natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes) is a critical step toward sustainable urban water management. This requires the water utility to be able to respond quickly to such disaster events, and in an organized manner, to prioritize the use of available resources to restore...

The temperature of drinking water is an important parameter, affecting physical, chemical, biological and aesthetic properties of the water. Currently, measurements exceeding the legal limit of 25ᵒC at the tap are exceptional. However, there are reasons to believe that the number of exceedances will increase due to climate change and...

The exercise of solving engineering problems that require optimisation procedures can be seriously affected by uncertain variables, resulting in potential underperforming solutions. Although this is a well-known problem, important knowledge gaps are still to be addressed. For example, concepts of robustness largely differ from study to study,...

Water quality sensors are often spatially distributed in water distribution systems (WDSs) to detect contamination events and monitor quality parameters (e.g., chlorine residual levels), thereby ensuring safety of a WDS. The performance of a water quality sensor placement strategy (WQSPS) is not only affected by sensor spatial deployment that...
