This paper presents a framework to carry out multi-area stochastic reserve scheduling (RS) based on an AC optimal power flow (OPF) model with high penetration of wind power using distributed consensus and the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM). We first formulate the OPF-RS problem using semidefinite programming (SDP) in...

During the operation of the belt conveyor, measuring speed of the belt conveyor is vital to the safe and efficient operation. In the existing measuring speed system, the measurement instrument is required contacting with the surface of the belt. The contact measurement method cannot avoid the occurrence of measuring error caused by slipping...

Understanding the relationship between hydrological processes and environmental changes is important for improved water management. The Geba catchment in Ethiopia, forming the headwaters of Tekeze-Atbara basin, was known for its severe land degradation before the recent success in integrated watershed management. This study analyses the...

Airline operators face accidental damages on their fleet of aircraft as part of operational practice. Individual occurrences are hard to predict; consequently, the approach towards repairing accidental damage is reactive in aircraft maintenance practice. However, by aggregating occurrence data and predicting future occurrence rates, it is...

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...

In this paper, by considering the absorbed energy in the fracture process zone and extension of the minimum strain energy density theory for orthotropic materials, a new mixed mode I/II failure criterion was proposed. The applicability of the new criterion, to predict the crack growth in both laminated composites and wood species, was...

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...

Process-based method forward stratigraphic modelling provides advantages in reservoir modelling by simulating the geological process mathematically, and the genesis of geologic formations over time (Michael et al., 2010). In spite of its advantages, Miller et al. (2008) have recognised significant challenges in process-based simulation models,...

An increase in air traffic demand, aging pavement infrastructure, and limited funds make pavement management decision making a difficult process. Pavement management systems (PMS) are essential for pavement management. PAVER, the most common airport pavement management system (APMS) assists pavement managers by identifying the surface condition...

To overcome the increasing sensitivity to variability in nanoscale integrated circuits, operation parameters (e.g., supply voltage) are adapted in a customized way exclusively to each chip. AVS is a standard industrial technique which has been adopted widely to compensate for process, voltage, and temperature variations as well as power...

Companies (in general and in the dredging sector) are striving towards more sustainable operations. However, problems arise in the changing of current practices to operationalize sustainability goals in projects. The objective of this research is to describe the process of creating a sustainable operating environment for dredging and reclamation...

In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) agreed upon the target to reduce the CO2 emissions from international shipping in 2050 by 50 percent with respect to 2008 levels. The strategy to reach this target consists of the ambition to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across...
