Wind Power Producers (WPP) incur a negative result through mandatory participation on the balancing market. This study analyzes the performance of multiple improved offering strategies for a WPP offering both on the day-ahead market and the balancing market. It does so on revenue, as well as its impact on the grid and electricity market as a...

Nowadays, reinforcement learning algorithms on Markov decision processes (MDPs) face computational issues when the state space is large. To reduce this state space of a MDP several state aggregation, or clustering, methodologies have been applied. Recently, a new clustering algorithm has been proposed that is able to cluster states from a single...

A prevalent approach for learning a control policy in the model-free domain is by engaging Reinforcement Learning (RL). A well known disadvantage of RL is the necessity for extensive amounts of data for a suitable control policy. For systems that concern physical application, acquiring this vast amount of data might take an extraordinary amount...

Metamaterials are a new class of materials where the properties crucially depend on the design of the unit cell that is periodically repeated in space. In this study a new metamaterial unit cell concept has been proposed, inspired by a class of space structures known as deployable masts. The ability of these structures to contract to a fraction...

This thesis provides insight into how the design approach, also known as ‘Design Thinking’ could be implemented in infrastructure planning processes. This is done with the objective to prevent premature convergence, which means, too early choosing for a solution by which other valuable alternatives are ‘killed off.’ By preventing premature...

The rapid growth of commercial drone raises concern regarding its close operation to the public. This research aims to support the development of commercial drone that also align with the concept of responsible research and innovation. To achieve this aim, first, the development of drone technology will be analyzed by identifying the influence...

In this thesis, the relation between the generator of the OrnsteinUhlenbeck process and the Hamiltonian of the quantum harmonic oscillator is used to derive a new understanding of the evolution of certain quantum states. More precisely, we transform the Hamiltonian with respect to the ground state and corresponding eigenvalue to find that it is...

Turbulence closure models will continue to be necessary in order to perform computationally affordable simulations in the foreseeable future. It is expected that Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence models will still be useful with the further development of the more accurate, but computationally expensive large eddy simulation (LES...

The purpose of this master thesis is to gather information from current practices and make recommendations to facilitate implementation of circularity in the building process. The past years, circularity has become a popular term in the built environment. This approach prefers a more circular way of perceiving the building process. Literature...

The Organic Rankine Cycle Hybrid Integrated Device (ORCHID) is a small scale power plant that is used to study the fundamental gas dynamic behavior of dense organic fluids, as well as the behavior of turbomachinery. In order to draw accurate conclusions about the raw sensor data generated by the ORCHID one has to know when the system is in...

As Dutch cities are increasingly looking to transform inner city industrial waterfronts into mixed-use neighbourhoods, the need for good participation processes with existing businesses increases. Although municipalities are aware of this, current participation processes often do not lead to the desired results. Therefore, a structured process...

Within aircraft component MRO industry, companies providing availability contracts are challenged by inherently unpredictable demand patterns and complex time crucial operations. Most prevailing academic literature within the MRO industry has focused on availability models or operations management in repair shops in the past. This study focuses...

Within the field of construction management & engineering are upcoming cities investigated on how they achieved economic development and how they increased the quality of life by using the phenomena of city branding as development tool. By doing so (city branding), cities hope to get a better position on the global market to attract...

This research explores the factors that challenge the implementation of Revenue Management (RM) in manufacturing industries. Previous research focused mainly on Order Management to explain how RM could be applied with studies that are mathematical by nature. However, there is no empirical study explaining the implementation process of RM in...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

This research analysed the effects of using an AR co-design environment as a supportive tool during design meetings, on the interaction within a project team.
Lacking interaction is a problem that occurs project wide in the construction industry and can cause diverse effects, leading to mistakes and rework. This lack often originates in the...

Terminos Lagoon is the biggest and ecologically most important fluvial-lagoon system of the southern Gulf of Mexico. Rivers, sea and meteorology all influence the lagoon, variable over the year, resulting in a complex situation. To protect this area, it is crucial to know how different hydrological processes, hydrodynamic processes and spatial...

Winning tenders is vital to the acquisition of work for project-based organizations (Philbin, 2008; Morris & Pinto, 2004). This necessity is due to the fact that within The Netherlands 80% of all revenue within the GWW sector is initiated by the government and therefore must be awarded through a tender procedure consistent to European...

This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

Coastal dunes serve as a first line of protection against flooding by the sea. In the recent past, the interest in secondary services provided by coastal dunes has increased. These services include ecological values and recreation. In order to manage and maintain the coast as an attractive area that combines coastal protection and ecological...
