The global battle to reduce greenhouse gases changes many aspects of how we should think of our energy resources. For a large part, the industry is responsible for worldwide energy consumption. In the Netherlands, this share amounts to 41% of total energy production (Compendium voor de Leefomgeving, 2019). The industry is looking into different...

The Atalanta is a palm-sized, insect-inspired, flapping-wing micro air vehicle developed by the University of Technology Delft. In its current form, the Atalanta has a lift-to-mass ratio of 0.12 which inhibits it from taking off. Getting the Atalanta to fly would greatly benefit the research into areas such as aerodynamic modelling, on-board...

Users in traditional office buildings often experience discomfort with the indoor environment and have issues with how this is being regulated. Research has shown that users’ satisfaction in an office building, which consists of their comfort and health, reflects on their work productivity. Therefore, necessary measures need to be taken in order...

The current housing market in the Netherlands depicts a need for energy-efficient buildings for young professionals. Performative Computational Architecture (PCA), as computational methodology, is a valuable source of knowledge and design support to integrate the buildings’ performances at early stages. By applying PCA, this thesis explores and...

Climate change has a progressive nature; thus, our buildings must be designed to be adaptive and resilient towards changing climate conditions. Passive design strategies applied to building envelope are crucial in reducing the energy demand and provide thermal comfort. However, it is essential to understand their performance in the presence of...

Urban areas are the biggest consumers of electricity and energy consumption is only likely to increase with rapid urbanization. Out of the urban building stock residential buildings require continuous supply of energy for space heating and appliances. To answer to this demand in a sustainable way policy maker need to design energy efficiency...

In the Netherlands, the residential building sector accounts for 20% of energy consumption and 14% of carbon emissions. To reach the ambitious National targets of decreasing energy consumption and to stop this sector’s reliance on natural gas, a wide renovation of the building stock is needed. Residential buildings’ energy performance has to...

The life cycle of a building has a tremendous impact on the environment. This is due to its energy demand, production and transportation of building materials, and its maintenance. Actually, the building industry is one of the most polluting industries that contribute to climate change. In the Netherlands alone, this sector is chargeable for 50%...

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 energy demand for horticulture is a large contributor to the increase in energy consumption. Today, thermal energy storage (TES) has a key role in improving the energy efficiency for both cold and heat storage for which phase change material (PCM) can be used. This thesis will be concluded by answering the main research question: ‘What is...

The building sector uses 40% of the primary energy worldwide. Energy demand in a non-residential existing building is rising due to higher comfort conditions, population growth and the enhancement of the building services. On the other hand, renewable energy technologies are every time more accessible for the built environment, especially the...

We, humans, spend 80-90% of our lives indoors. Thereby the building has two main functions, namely: protect their occupants and provide the occupants a comfortable indoor environment. However, the last one seems a big challenge, since every individual is different from each other, based on the factors as age, gender, clothing, activity,...

Smart temperature sensors can be used for the temperature compensation of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) frequency references. From the different types of CMOS temperature sensors, resistor-based sensors are currently the most energy-efficient. However, compared with bipolar transistor (BJT)-based temperature sensors, resistors suffer from...

Analog-to-digital converters are important blocks in any electronic system which act as a bridge between analog signals and digital processors. The conventional SAR ADC employs a binary search algorithm and has emerged as the most suitable solution for low-power applications, due to its excellent power efficiency. The proposed ADC architecture...
