Contemporary optical communication terminals are capable of higher data rates, over longer distances for less power compared to traditional radio communication terminals. As of writing, these terminals are almost exclusively single beam compatible. This thesis describes dedicated multi-beam terminal with COTS components. The design study used a...

This exploratory study was performed to improve the understanding of the emerging phenomena of Business Model Innovation (BMI) and Corporate Venture Capital (CVC), in the context of European electric utilities. More specifically, the potential contribution of CVC activities to BMI of European electric utilities was assessed. A thorough...

Since 2017, Dutch flood defences are assessed according to new safety standards. These standards are based on flooding probabilities and rely on several assumptions and approximations. There are concerns that the combination of these assumptions leads to conservative results. Recently computed probabilities of failure are...

Model predictive control is an optimal, model-based control method that has the powerful capability of directly including input and output constraints. Next to this, it is known that helicopters are hard to fly with its complex, unstable and highly coupled dynamics. With the introduction of the concept of handling qualities, guidelines for...

The role of data in the strategic design field is unquestionable and essential, being a catalyst for creativity and decision making. Design teams gather large amounts of data at the beginning of projects, to understand how the context of the problem looks like and how they can get inspired for the ideation of the outcomes. In the context of this...

The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

This paper proposes a socio-technical agent-based model developed to increase the understanding of decision-making in an airline operational control center (AOCC). In this model human decision-makers, a Decision Support Tool, and technical systems are included. The selected case study encompasses the<br/>unexpected diversion of a flight from...

Active inference is a neuroscientific theory, which states that all living systems (e.g. the human brain) minimize a quantity termed the free energy. By minimizing this free energy, living systems keep an accurate representation of the world in their internal model (learning), are provided with an optimal way of acting on the world (action...

This MSc thesis presents the development of a viewpoint optimization framework to face the problem of detecting occluded fruits in autonomous harvesting. A Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) algorithm is developed in order to train a robotic manipulator to navigate to occlusion-free viewpoints of the tomato-target. Two Convolutional Neural...

This thesis examines statistical methods to find the right timing of intrauterine insemination treatment relative to the start of the follow-up of the couples. Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment conducted by injecting refined sperm into a woman's uterus. Lots of research has been done on timing of steps within one IUI cycle....

Design decisions which are made in the preliminary ship design phase have a significant influence on the performance and total cost of a ship. These design decisions are mostly made with very little knowledge of the ship design problem. In fact, it is the personal experience of the naval architect which plays a significant role in this phase of...

In the last decades, the excessive increase in average global temperature related to a massive rise in greenhouse gas emissions showed the world how the fossil fuel society we live in today is drastically modifying and destroying the world we live in and is turning it in an un-habitable planet. Scientist all over the world made it clear that if...

At present, the energy transition is increasingly being driven by the integration of renewable energy into the grid. However, this weather-dependent energy generation imposes challenges to the system operators since the deviations between the forecasted and the actual generation keep increasing due to this intermittent generation. Moreover, new...

In the future, the energy supply will primarily consist of energy from renewables, which makes energy producers and grid operators fear that grid security and reliability could be threatened. On top of a more fluctuating supply, energy demand is also expected to increase in the coming years, especially if heating will be electrical when gas is...

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) readmission is a serious adverse event associated with high mortality rates and costs. Prediction of ICU readmission could support physicians in their decision to discharge patients from the ICU to lower care wards. Due to increasing ICU data availability, Artificial Intelligence (AI) models in the form of machine...

Submarines face an ongoing (technical) battle to improve the operational effectiveness by increasing the submerged endurance and range. Installing lithium-ion batteries on new or refitted diesel-electric submarines has become increasingly interesting based on their relatively high energy density and specific energy. The characteristics compared...

Acceleration of the energy transition requires increased mining of materials. An important material for the energy transition is nickel, used in the stainless steel required for all energy infrastructure and an important component for both stationary batteries and batteries used in electric vehicles. Previous research has been done on the global...

LeasePlan Tripp is a new Service proposition that answres major changes the mobility and fleet management industry is facing. Before the Tripp pilot went live in February 2021, several questions emerged: How could the Tripp Service be improved and scaled up effectively? Therefore, this graduation project assignment was raised: “Design an...

Time-optimal model-predictive control is essential in achieving fast and adaptive quadcopter flight. Due to the limited computational performance of onboard hardware, aggressive flight approaches have relied on off-line trajectory optimization processes or non time-optimal methods. In this work we propose a computational efficient model...

Efficient combustion processes are indispensable in limiting the temperature increase to 1.5 deg C as set by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) before 2030 to curtail the effects of global warming. As for the emissions, the main task lies in controlling the air-fuel ratio in the lean regime as to control the emissions of NOx since...
