In the last decades, tremendous efforts have been put in advancements of wind turbine technology by scientific research and industrial developments. One of the focal areas has been the upscaling of turbines to increase power capacity. However, by enlarging turbine sizes, the square-cube law dictates rising costs per unit of power capacity. To...

POLDERS are low-lying and artificially drained areas surrounded bywater storage canals. In low-lying delta areas such as theMississippi delta in Louisiana (USA), the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta (Bangladesh), or the Rhine-Meuse delta (The Netherlands), polders experience surface water salinization problem due to saline groundwater exfiltration,...

With the ever increasing power rates of wind turbines, more advanced control techniques are needed to facilitate tall towers that are low in weight and cost-effective but in effect more flexible. Such soft-soft tower configurations generally have their fundamental side-side frequency in the below-rated operational domain. Because the turbine...

Autonomous shipping refers to the ability of a ship to independently control its own actions while transporting cargo from one port to another, which places higher requirements on ship motion control methods. When a ship enters a port, it is important to ensure that the ship sails from the fairway area to the assigned position at the berth...

Since their introduction, anti-lock braking systems (ABS) have mostly relied on heuristic, rule-based control strategies. ABS performance, however, can be significantly improved thanks to many recent technological developments. This work presents an extensive review of the state of the art to verify such a statement and quantify the benefits...

This paper proposes a centralised model predictive control framework to address logistics management of supply chains of perishable goods. Meeting customer specific requirements is decisive to gain a competitive advantage in supply chain management. This fact motivates stakeholders to address solutions that continuously improve supply chain...

The objective of this paper is to provide a concise introduction to the max-plus algebra and to max-plus linear discrete-event systems. We present the basic concepts of the max-plus algebra and explain how it can be used to model a specific class of discrete-event systems with synchronization but no concurrency. Such systems are called max...

This paper presents an extended Model Predictive Control scheme called Multi-objective Model Predictive Control (MOMPC) for real-time operation of a multi-reservoir system. The MOMPC approach incorporates the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II), multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) and the receding horizon principle to solve...

Truck platooning has attracted substantial attention due to its pronounced benefits in saving energy and promising business model in freight transportation. However, one prominent challenge for the successful implementation of truck platooning is the safe and efficient interaction with surrounding traffic, especially at network...

Future district heating systems (DHS) will be supplied by renewable sources, most of which are limited in temperature and flow rate. Therefore, operational optimization of DHS is required to maximize the use of renewable sources and minimize (fossil) peak loads. In this paper, we present a robust and fast model-predictive control approach to...

This PhD thesis investigates V2V, V2I, and I2I cooperation of CMVSs for improving the safety and efficiency of waterborne transport. A predictive motion control framework and a generic negotiation framework are proposed to achieve consensus among controllers. Different applications provide insights into the impact of CMVSs on the performance of...

This PhD thesis considers the development of optimization and model-based control techniques for max-plus linear (MPL) and continuous piecewise affine (PWA) systems. The three main topics investigated in this thesis are as follows: 1. Optimistic optimization and planning for model-based control of MPL systems; 2. Optimistic optimization for MPC...

In this thesis, we design control algorithms for power scheduling of a fleet of fuel cell cars in a microgrid. Fuel cell cars are a relatively new type of vehicles. The driving force of these cars comes from an electrical motor and in order to generate the required electricity for the operation of the motor, the vehicle is equipped with a fuel...

In the context of building heating systems control in office buildings, the current state-of-the-art applies either a deterministic Model Predictive Control (MPC) controller together with a nonlinear model, or a linearized model with a stochastic MPC controller. Deterministic MPC considers only one realization of the external disturbances,...

Freeway congestion can reduce the freeway throughput due to the capacity drop or due to blocking caused by spillback to upstream ramps. Research has shown that congestion can be reduced by the application of ramp metering and variable speed limits. Model predictive control is a promising strategy for the optimization of the ramp metering...
