In the current state of model-based wind farm flow control, the implementation of yaw-based wake steering based on steady-state models has demonstrated potential for improving wind farm power production. However, for realistic, time-varying wind directions, the dynamics of wake propagation may impact the effectiveness of wake redirection. This...

Approximate dynamic programming (ADP) faces challenges in dealing with constraints in control problems. Model predictive control (MPC) is, in comparison, well-known for its accommodation of constraints and stability guarantees, although its computation is sometimes prohibitive. This paper introduces an approach combining the two methodologies...

Model Predictive Control can cope with conflicting control objectives in building energy managements. In terms of user satisfaction, visual comfort has been proven in several studies to be a crucial factor, however thermal comfort is typically considered the only important aspect. Besides human well-being, visual comfort strongly impacts the...

Capable of both vertical take-off and landing and forward flight, tail-sitters are a versatile class of UAVs with a large range of potential applications. A variant of tailsitters using tilt-rotors instead of ailerons for pitch and roll control has been proposed to mitigate the reduced control authority at low to zero velocities. The control of...

With the steadily increasing road traffic demand, congestion on freeways has become a major problem. With the development of communication technology and automated vehicles, there are more opportunities for DTMs to be studied extensively at the coordination level and cooperation level. In the existing literature, the coordination of RM (ramp...

The renewable generation capacity, particularly solar and wind power installations, has increased steadily in the Netherlands over the course of recent years. Due to the local, small-scale nature of these power plants (compared to conventional power plants), a large share of this generation capacity is installed into the medium- and low-voltage...

This thesis introduces a novel model predictive controller (MPC) that integrates both torque vectoring and path following into one controller. Due to a need to improve vehicle safety, systems are being developed in order to improve vehicle handling. One system that is able to improve the vehicle handling is torque vectoring (TV). With torque...

Underactuated mechanical systems (UMS) feature prominently in robotics and aerospace, with aircraft, unmanned air vehicles, and aeroelastic wings as prime examples. These systems present multifaceted control challenges, ranging from inherent underactuation and stability concerns to state and control saturation and an overarching need for...

This thesis extensively examines the influential factors affecting the performance of approximations of Model Predictive Control (MPC) control laws using neural networks. MPC is a control strategy that solves an optimization problem at each timestep. This problem can be computationally complex and could be too slow to compute for online control....

Recent literature in real-time trajectory planning has proposed using Control Barrier Functions (CBFs) as collision constraints in Model Predictive Control (MPC) for efficient guidance, a concept referred to as MPC-CBF. This concept has been explored for both first and second-order CBFs. However, these approaches relied on an analytical...

This thesis focuses on management and control of traffic networks, including urban networks and freeway networks, in which we aim to reduce traffic congestion by minimizing the total time spent of all the vehicles in the network, and also consider green mobility by minimizing the total emissions produced by the vehicles. In this thesis, we have...

Greenhouses allow production of crops that would otherwise be impossible. Permitting more local, fresher and nutrient richer crop production. Eorts are taken to minimize societal harm due to energy and resource consumption by greenhouse production systems. One way to control such systems is by using model predictive control. Optimal crop yield...

Ambitions to limit climate change are incentivizing the expansion of renewable energy. In particular, offshore wind energy is expected to grow rapidly. To harness the full potential of existing as well as prospected offshore wind farms, the limited capacity of the internal cable network of the offshore wind farm, called the collector system,...

A key challenge for SaR robotics is to avoid dynamic obstacles in cluttered environments, with limited and noisy information. In this research, a controller for SaR robots is developed by coupling a local heuristic motion planner with a model predictive control (MPC) based trajectory tracker. Constraint tightening and tube-based control are used...

Commercially available Lane Keeping Assist systems fail to consider the driver's intentions since they mainly focus on minimising path tracking errors, resulting in conflicts between humans and automation. This often leads to users being unsatisfactory and turning off the assist, as a result diminishing the advantages such as reduced workload...

As Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) navigate through dynamic and constantly changing environments, it is crucial that they take into account the impact of their actions on the decisions of others for safe and efficient interaction with humans. In doing so, they need to anticipate how humans will behave in different situations based on their intentions....
