In most types of networks (e.g., optical or transportation networks), finding one or more best paths from a source to a destination, is one of the biggest concerns of network users and providers. This process is known as routing. The routing problems differ accordingly depending on different application scenarios with their respective routing...

This thesis discusses the d es ign and verification of a high-resolution self-timed incremental ?? ADC. The first self-timed incremental ?? ADC was presented by C.Chen et.al at ISSCC 2013 and this work targets to improve the resolution, linearity and energy-efficiency of a self-timed ADC. Unlike conventional ?? ADCs, a self -timed ADC is capable...

The performance of railway operations depends highly on the quality of the railway timetable. In particular for dense railway networks it can be a challenge to obtain a stable robust conflict-free and energy-efficient timetable with acceptable infrastructure occupation and short travel times. This paper presents a performance-based railway...

This report studies about the transformation of empty office area to housing area by integrating greenhouse into the air field of the dwelling. There are some cases integrating greenhouse into the house due to the contribution of energy saving aspect. Making low-energy consumption area is indispensable consideration in the project. One plot in...

The urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon and the dependency of buildings on fossil fuels were the two main issues that formed this dissertation. UHI results in higher air temperatures in dense urban areas compared with their suburbs and rural surroundings. This phenomenon affects human health through thermal discomfort and air pollution....

This thesis discusses the basic principles, circuit implementation and measurements of an inverter-based capacitive-sensor interface based on period modulation. The interface employs an inverter-based OTA and comparator to increase the current efficiency. Moreover, it applies new circuit techniques to reduce the die size and to reduce noise. A...

It is poorly understood what the characteristics are of households who want to engage in nZEB single-family home renovations. This paper addresses the research question: What are customer segments, and what are their customer values and motives to choose for a nZEB renovation of privately-owned single-family dwellings in the Netherlands?...

The general goal of tenant involvement is to ensure that retrofitting projects are successful not only from a technical point of view but also from a social perspective. When possible, strategies should be included to reward users for energy efficient behaviour. Energy monitoring and feedback are tools in support of energy savings. But how do...

This dissertation addresses the challenges of wireless local area networks (WLANs) that operate in the unlicensed sub-1GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band. Frequencies in the 900MHz spectrum enable a wider coverage due to the longer propagation characteristics of the radio waves. To utilize globally available sub-1GHz (S1G) ISM...

Energy-harvesting cognitive radio network has emerged as a solution to increase energy and spectrum efficiency. In this thesis, we propose short-term offline optimal power allocation algorithms for multi-user energy-harvesting cognitive radio networks considering interference between secondary users. Assuming finite and rechargeable batteries...

Dynamic spectrum access employing cognitive radios has been proposed, in order to opportunistically use underutilized spectrum portions of a heavily licensed electromagnetic spectrum. Cognitive radios opportunistically share the spectrum, while avoiding any harmful interference to the primary licensed users. One major category of cognitive...
