Louisiana, USA, operates as an oilscape, sacrificing its landscape in pursuit of economic prosperity through the oil and gas industry. Combined with sea level rise, this has resulted in continuous land loss since the fifties, making the Louisiana coast one of the fastest declining in the world. As a consequence, many communities are living on...

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...

Even though negative effects on the use of crude oil have surfaced over the past years, our energy matrix still largely relies on this energy source. The production of oil, therefore, plays an important role in our society. Unfortunately, the process of oil production is highly uncertain. There are uncertainties associated on the production...

Schur multipliers are a concept from functional analysis that have various uses in mathematics. In this thesis we provide an introduction of the aforementioned Schur multipliers and the associated Schatten p-classes. We prove a number of results and introduce some concepts of functional analysis in order to get to the central topic: a conjecture...

High performance control allocation methods for the Innovative Control Effectors (ICE) aircraft require accurate onboard aerodynamic models, with preferably first order continuity. Simplotope B-Splines, an extension on Simplex B-Splines, have a high approximation power by using local basis functions. However, enforcing global continuity produces...

High frequency high voltage power supply has been widely applied in many industrial applications such as the medical X-ray machine and eletrostatic precipitators. As a part of the high frequency high voltage power supply, the electrical performances of the voltage multiplier circuit will influence the behaviors of applications like the X-ray...

Stochastic resonance (SR) is a phenomenon where the performance of a nonlinear system subjected to noise is better than it is without noise. This phenomenon can be found both in natural and artificial systems, especially in threshold-based systems such as comparators or a population of neurons. As noise always exists and interacts with the...

Recently, the effects of quantization on the Primal-Dual Method of Multipliers were studied.
In this thesis, we have used this method as an example to further investigate the effects of quantization on distributed optimization schemes in a much broader sense. Using monotone operator theory, the effect of quantization on all distributed...

The increasing penetration of wind power generation introduces uncertainty in the behaviour of electric power grids. This work is concerned with the problem of day-ahead reserve scheduling (RS) for power systems with high levels of wind power penetration, and proposes a novel set-up that incorporates an alternating current (AC) Optimal Power...

Since its introduction, Topology Optimization (TO) has been applied to a broad range of design cases. TO is a material distribution method which finds the optimal material lay-out for a given design space while upholding given constraints and boundary conditions. This has made the method popular in structural mechanics where it is used to find...

The main contribution of this thesis is the development of an inherently adaptive controller which recursively implements a system identification and control routine. The main idea here, is that if system identification techniques can be made computationally light, and if they can be combined efficiently with a controller formulation, such a...

We are currently facing an increasing amount of challenges in the area of photonics as more and more applications in need for active “photon control” sprout in different fields of science. Adaptive Optics (AO) is the subject which deals with measuring, reconstructing, and reshaping the phase of a photon wavefront in real-time and can, thus,...

The main focus of the transmission expansion planning is to find the optimal structure and least cost transmission investment alternatives of the forecasted load and generation configuration. In this paper, transmission investment methodology which focuses on alleviation of transmission line congestions is proposed. The proposed methodology is...

Frequency up-conversion is an integral part of the (sub)mm wave integrated radar system that is currently developed at the TUDelft in the context of the MEMPIS program. The proposed up-converter IC allows the necessary signal modulation for the radar to be generated at a relative low frequency, after up-conversion to W-band takes place. In our...

The first Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems emerged in the 1960's from the need for deep water drilling by the offshore oil and gas industry, as conventional mooring systems, like a jack-up barge or an anchored rig, can only be used in shallow waters. GustoMSC has been developing DP drill ships since the early 1970's and it is still one of their...
