Nowadays, an increasing share of photovoltaic (PV) systems makes use of module- or submodule-level power electronics (PE). Furthermore, PE is used in stand-alone devices powered by PV-storage solutions. One way to facilitate further implementation of PE in PV applications is to integrate PE components into crystalline silicon PV cells. Herein...

This thesis describes the design of a 3rd order 1-bit delta-sigma modulator whose input-signal range (0 to 1.95V) exceeds its supply voltage (1.2V). By using a passive input stage and a single-OTA resonator, this beyond-the-rails modulator realizes a 3rd order loop filter with only two amplifiers instead of the usual three and thus achieves...

In the last decades our usage of the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum has intensified a lot due to the increasing number of mobile devices. The spectrum is getting crowded and new communication alternatives might become necessary in the future. One such alternative is Visible Light Communication (VLC),which uses the visible light spectrum instead...

Vibrations have been studied in various engineering fields due to their detrimental and even destructive effects on structures. Suppressing low-frequency vibrations has been a research challenge for decades and is mostly achieved by implementing active vibration control techniques. In the last two decades, the emergence of locally resonant...

The world is in a climatic crisis. Extreme weather events are stronger and more frequent than ever before, exacerbated by human induced CO2 from energy production and the built environment. Only 5% of world energy is produced by renewable energy sources, presenting an enormous gap between sustainability and greenhouse gas emitting practices....

Industrial passive exoskeletons have been developed for years as a tool to reduce the physical workload of their users. They accomplish this by compensating for the user’s body weight and decreasing fatigue caused by repetitive loads. Despite their advantages, current exoskeletons have drawbacks that make them less convenient for users and thus...

The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims to reduce the stowed volume compared to other Earth observation satellites with a similar resolution. The DST demonstrator functions in the thermal infrared (TIR) domain, which imposes stringent thermal requirements on the detector. The detector must be cooled to 150 K, and the instrument box to...

Neuromuscular diseases often result in elevated passive joint impedance (PJI), impacting the daily lives of affected individuals. To be able to apply assistive devices that compensate for PJI, it is essential to identify the PJI correctly. This study aims to identify and model the PJI of the elbow joint, to improve the control of force-based...

An important part of people and their wellbeing is their living environment. Because of the increase in population and buildings, urban areas suffer from densification and diminishing green environments. These urban environments have substantial risk of mental illness, such as depression and anxiety. Green environments and qualitative features...

The current wireless networks can face congestion issues due to the increasing number of digital devices. One way to overcome this is to establish communica-tion at a different range of frequencies, specifically in visible light. Most studies in Visible Light Communication (VLC) systems use active light sources like LEDs for transmission, but...

Surfaces that induce slip at the wall have been shown to reduce skin friction drag in the turbulent regime. While superhydrophobic and liquid-infused surfaces are capable of drag reduction in turbulent hydrodynamic flows, neither would be feasible in aerodynamic applications due to the added roughness and the minuscule slip lengths created by...
