We study a generalization of the classic Spanning Tree problem that allows for a non-uniform failure model. More precisely, edges are either safe or unsafe and we assume that failures only affect unsafe edges. In Unweighted Flexible Graph Connectivity we are given an undirected graph G = (V,E) in which the edge set E is partitioned into a set...

Accounting for almost 40% of energy consumption in the European Union, the role of the existing building stock is instrumental in the energy transition and the goals for carbon neutrality of the built environment. An effective renovation plan must significantly improve the current energy performance towards a nearly zero-energy level....

This article proposes a systematic approach for optimal reset law design of a class of nonlinear systems. By using the guaranteed cost control method, sufficient conditions for the design of optimal reset law are derived in terms of linear matrix inequalities. In an offline design procedure, the reset law is computed that minimizes the upper...

In this thesis we analyse the class of <i>maximum coverage</i> problems. For all discussed problems, linear programs are formulated. Using the notion of <i>submodularity</i>, we prove that for the weighted version of the basic <i>Maximum Coverage</i> problem, where the weights differ per set, a polynomial-time greedy algorithm guarantees a (1 -...

LCAs of electric cars and electrolytic hydrogen production are governed by the consumption of electricity. Therefore, LCA benchmarking is prone to choices on electricity data. There are four issues: (1) leading Life Cycle Impact (LCI) databases suffer from inconvenient uncertainties and inaccuracies, (2) electricity mix in countries is...

This research aims to provide a method for large-scale commercial electricity consumers to procure towards 100% hourly matched renewable electricity. A problem with the current electricity balancing system is that the energy produced by Variable Renewable Energy sources (VRES), such as wind and solar PV, has a weather-dependent production...

In 2017 the new Dutch coalition government agreed on high ambitions for the reduction of CO2 emissions to meet the Paris agreement and policies to achieve this were detailed in a Climate Agreement between the government and many stakeholder organisation in June 2019. In 2030 CO2 emissions have to be reduced to 49% compared to 1990. In 2050 we...

Successful market penetration of electric vehicles may not only rely on the characteristics of the technology but also on the business models available on the market. This study aims to assess and quantify consumer preferences for business models in the context of Electric Vehicle (EV) adoption. In particular, we explore the impact of...

An analytical approach based on the on the sequential partitioning of the data and Weibull Statistical Distribution for inhomogeneous - defective materials is proposed. It allows assessing the guaranteed strength of glass structures for the low probability of fracture with a higher degree of reliability. Parameters of equations for the piecewise...

The aim of the project is to develop an ECG signal compression algorithm that has a high compression ratio while guaranteeing signal quality. An electrocardiography (ECG) signal is a representation of cardiac activity and has an need to be compressed to reduce data storage requirements and energy cost of transmission. Previous ECG signal...

Minimizing transfer waiting time is important in making public transport networks more attractive. A guaranteed transfer, with the departing vehicle waiting on moderately delayed arriving vehicles at a transfer node, is an effective way to reduce waiting times at transfers between low frequency public transport lines. This secondary train delay...

A scarcity of empirical research has been observed on risk mitigation measures for those construction projects procured by guaranteed maximum price contracts (GMP) and target cost contracts (TCC) worldwide. This paper aims to seek and examine the risk mitigation measures associated with GMP and TCC (GMP/TCC) construction projects through an...
