All over Europe, the expansion of renewable energy sources is quickly proceeding, fueled by environmental and political motives. The power generated by renewables is heavily subject to the intermittency of the source, e.g. the availability of wind or solar irradiance. Consequently, electrical grids that rely on renewable sources alternate...

A switching max-plus linear model is a framework to describe the discrete dynamics of the timing of events. To influence these systems one can choose the routes of jobs and the orderings of operations as input for the system. In this thesis the techniques of model predictive control are used to find good input values. The problem of finding the...

The trajectory tracking efficiency of a quadrotor Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) position controller is decreased by discrete jumps in the pose estimate provided by a localization algorithm. This paper presents a solution to this problem by first introducing a new quadrotor MAV position control architecture followed by two methods that can...

Due to the yearly increase in the number of vehicles and the need for transportation, traffic congestion has become a crucial problem in today's society. There is a need for a sustainable solution to reduce or even eliminate traffic jams. Freeway traffic control has shown to be a sustainable solution to this problem. Especially the...

Traditional electric power systems with large centralized base load power plants have a limited ability to react rapidly to the high supply variability associated with the increasing deployment of variable and intermittent renewable energy sources (RESs). Furthermore, with current power distribution networks primarily designed for unidirectional...

Objects floating on or near the water surface (e.g. vessels, and floating wind-turbines) suffer from motions induced by waves of varying height, direction, and frequency. This not only causes unpleasantness for passengers and crew of ships but also it limits the accessibility to the offshore platforms. Bosch Rexroth with their partner Barge...

An analysis of attitude controller concepts, including four attitude flight controllers, for the re-entry of the HORUS-2b. The four concerning attitude flight controller concepts are the benchmark Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR), Model predictive Controller, Incremental Non-linear Dynamic Inversion (INDI) and Sliding Mode Controller. Each...

This thesis reports on the research and design of a real-time Time-Varying Model Predictive Control (TVMPC) scheme to stabilize a tilt-rotor aircraft with four independently tilting rotors. The aircraft design stems from a prototype system constructed by the drone technology start-up Avy.<br/>First, a motivation is presented for implementation...

During the exposure process of a wafer scanner, problems occur due to reticle heating. In this project, the consequences of reticle heating in terms of image aberrations are discussed along with how they could be solved with feedback controlled cooling. The problem is defined in terms of a performance index and constraints, which fits the Model...

In recent years, enormous progress has been made in the field of automated driving. As a consequence, automated driving technologies are becoming increasingly popular. Research on comfort for autonomous vehicles, however, is still limited and unexplored. Some researchers address the comfort issue in path planning by velocity profiles, which...

Over the past century, cars have become a fundamental part of our society. With the increasingly larger number of vehicles on the road, safety is, now more than ever, a topic of paramount importance. It is estimated that every year 26,000 people are killed on European roads, corresponding to a social cost of 100 billion euros. In the last two...

In The Netherlands, the current heat energy system accounts for 44% of the primary energy usage and relies almost entirely on fossil fuels such as natural gas. To meet the Paris Climate Agreement goals, 4th Generation District Heating (4GDH) networks are expected as sustainable heat energy system solution. The concept relies on optimally...

A numerically tractable Stochastic Model Predictive Control (SMPC) strategy using Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) optimization for discrete-time linear time-invariant systems, with state and input constraints, subject to additive uncertainty, is presented. SMPC strategies make use of the probabilistic description of uncertainty to define chance...

Aircraft lifespan can be extended by upgrading and modernizing the electrical subsystems and instruments. However, this often introduces increased power demands and heat generation that the aircraft was not originally designed for and can result in a reduced flight performance and increased wear. Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) and the...

In this master thesis, the recently introduced Mobile Model Predictive Control (MoMPC) approach for open water systems with uncertain dynamics is discussed, where there are no sensors or actuators installed in the system that would allow for a fully automatic operation. MoMPC is a configuration of Model Predictive Control (MPC) that explicitly...

One of the remaining challenges in the development of intelligent vehicles is the topic of behavior planning in urban scenarios. Based on perception of the environment around the intelligent vehicle, driving behavior has to be optimized to achieve a comfortable driving experience without sacrificing safety. This work covers the development of a...

Traffic congestion at signalized intersections is a big economical and ecological problem. Handcrafted traffic light controllers (TLCs) are currently used to minimize the impact, but they are expensive to design and maintain and their performance degrades over time. Predictive TLCs and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) form a potential...

This thesis report proposes a framework to implement Navigation, Guidance and Control (GNC) systems, that enable point-to-point autonomy for displacement vessels. A model-based control approach is chosen as the basis of the GNC systems. The resulting algorithms are implemented for verification in a 1:25 scale model of a Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD)...

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) are increasingly being used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches to MAV swung payload system path planning have primarily focused on pre-generating (agile) collision-free, or conservative...
