It is expected by the EWEA that in the North Sea only the wind energy capacity will increase to 45 GW. In 2015 the capacity was only 5.2 GW. Offshore contractors should be capable of installing lots of turbines and just that is a problem. As turbines increase in size installation vessels need significant upgrades. Therefore, most contractors...

Vehicle-2-Home (V2H) is a concept in which an electric vehicle (EV) is able to charge and discharge its battery pack to the building it is connected to. This concept enables EVs to store surplus solar energy, which is produced during the daytime and return in to buildings during the night time. For this system to work (cost) efficiently, the EVs...

The oceans, which cover nearly 70% of the earth’s surface, can be considered as an inexhaustible energy source for renewable electricity due to its size and predictability. One way to capture ocean energy is by harnessing the energy produced by waves at sea, by means of devices called wave energy converters (WECs).

Delft University of...

Rising carbon emissions and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) have put immense pressure on ship owners to make ships more efficient. One way to make ships more efficient is to install an energy saving device (ESD). ESDs are designed to perform at vessel’s design speed and design draft. Thus, there is abundant information available on...

Dealing with inherently unmodeled dynamics and large parameter variations or faults, is a challenging task while controlling robot manipulators. Classical control techniques cannot usually provide satisfactory responses, and often external supervision systems have to be designed to handle the faults. Recent research has shown that active...

This study has been performed in cooperation with TNO and set out to analyze the robustness of Dutch energy transition policies under deep uncertainty for the scope of the built environment sector. Open data is gathered which is used in a System Dynamics model to allow exploration under deep uncertainty. The Adaptive Robust Design methodology...

Future energy systems will present high penetrations of variable renewable energy (VRES). Due to the uncertainty that is related to the intermittency of wind and solar energy, and loads such as electric vehicles, the need for flexibility will be higher. This research identifies the possible sources of flexibility in a power system. Firstly,...

As airborne wind energy is a relatively new field, much of the current research is rapidly progressing towards the development of larger commercial systems with larger airborne components. Farms of airborne wind energy systems can provide higher power generation than a single kite system and offer a potential solution to issues that single kite...

The engineering flow models used to estimate annual energy production (AEP) in offshore wind farm layout optimization typically assume inflow homogeneity over the model domain. This assumption lies in contrast with observations of horizontal wind speed gradients in coastal regions where many offshore wind farms are being constructed. Accounting...

This thesis investigates the potential of a semi-passive trailing-edge flap on a large conceptual wind turbine. The mechanism passively reacts to blade and tower accelerations by changing the airfoil camber, opposing the dynamic loads on the turbine. An active element is present, which influences the mean of the flap oscillation. First, a low...

This study investigated the three possible main causes of injectivity reduction in geothermal wells (suspended solids, scaling, biological activity). That has been done by obtaining water samples at three operating geothermal doublet locations in the Netherlands. This paper contains new geothermal data and the interpretation of them. At the...

Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

The aim of my project at the Storage of Electrochemical Energy section of the TU Delft is to improve the performance and uncover the electrolytic hurdles of the widely used Na-beta”-alumina solid electrolyte within Sodium semi solid-state batteries at Room Temperature. Na-beta”-alumina could be an interesting candidate to replace volatile and...

With increasing attention to climate change,renewable energy generation has become a major topic for research anddevelopment. Wind and solar energy are generated on land, whereas wave, windand tidal energy generators are getting attention in the offshore domain. Anovel extension of onshore solar energy is the concept of...

In the past decades, the global demand for energy has increased. The aim to reduces has let to an increase in the production of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy. However, there are more major energy resources available in the oceans, such as wave and tidal power. The estimated potential global energy resource in waves is...

This research has been performed to help the Dutch government with the decisions and choices it has to make in order to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement and the Climate Agreement. Decentralized energy systems can be a solution for meeting these requirements, however trade-offs have to be made between different system criteria, which...

The marine area in Amsterdam, currently only partially publicly available, needs to be reintegrated into the public space. To start the reintegration process, a swimming pool and spa, which both meets the identity of the area and the vision of the municipality, will be added to this area. A new central route is placed through the marine area on...

The air-conditioning of commercial buildings accounts for approximately 50% of the total energy consumed in India’s commercial sector. Reducing this load is a key step towards minimizing India's greenhouse gas emissions. One culprit is the routine use of fully glazed façades which are chosen for aesthetics but are neither energy efficient nor...

The story about the relationship of human with water has been always linked with the fear of the hidden, natural power of water. By identifying the historical position of the North Sea, it is confirmed that the sea has been perceived as “the edge of the world” in its past. The sea and its cold northern waters was seen as an evil in itself, as a...

Passive measures to tackle increasing energy demands of modern buildings are aimed to generate energy from the roof or the ground beneath and by improving insulation to isolate indoors and outdoors. The author targets the opaque facade sections of a building to develop an active panel to exchange solar thermal energy with his project THERM...
