During the last years, electric power generation was based mainly on large centralized fossil fuelled power plants. However, nowadays and in the future, efforts are made to increase the share from renewable sources, as a result of increasing environmental concern. Indeed, in some networks areas, wind generators gradually start to replace...

A hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation is a cost and time effective method to develop a simulation environment of an electric vehicle's powertrain. Control algorithms can be programmed into a digital signal processor and tested with real-time simulations of electrical machines and power electronic converters, eliminating the need for developing...

Screen-space ambient obscurance techniques provide a cheap, yet visually pleasing approximation to the expensive global illumination effect. However, view-dependent artifacts frequently occur due to the limited scene information available in a single view, which forms the basis of these solutions. Recent work aims at suppressing artifacts with...

Climate change is driving the evolving energy mix in the world. The amount of renewables are rising to avoid the detrimental effects of fossil fuels to the environment. Solar and wind power are the major players in the rising renewable energy mix. Most of these power generation sources are interfaced through power electronic converters. In the...

During previous centuries, humanity had relied on fossil fuels to generate the demanded energy. Nowadays, the extensive use of oil, gas and coal for energy production is becoming a major problem which concerns modern society. Global warming and climate change are the biggest challenges the scientific community has faced. The main factor which...

In recent years, research in the field of autonomous driving has been subject to a significant increase in interest. Along with the advances in automation and electrification, cars are slowly transitioning to computers on wheels. The ever-increasing processing power in vehicles gives rise to the implementation of advanced control strategies. The...

In a recent first-in-human clinical study, a therapy based on targeted epidural electrical stimulation together with body weight support has been validated to restore voluntary locomotion in chronically paralyzed subjects with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). However, the system is currently open-loop controlled, meaning that the stimulation pattern...

This thesis reports on the research and design of a real-time Time-Varying Model Predictive Control (TVMPC) scheme to stabilize a tilt-rotor aircraft with four independently tilting rotors. The aircraft design stems from a prototype system constructed by the drone technology start-up Avy.<br/>First, a motivation is presented for implementation...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the potential to make quality education affordable and available to the masses and reduce the gap between the most privileged and the most disadvantaged learners worldwide. However, this potential is overshadowed by low completion rates, often below 15%. Due to the high level of autonomy that is required...

Mechatronic embedded control systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and computationally demanding. These systems typically consists of multiple controllers, which coordinate the actuators and apply feedback based on data collected by sensors. Often the underlying control strategy is entirely described in a software application, which...

Real-time ship motion predictions contributes to safer operations at sea and increases workability. Nowadays, a handful of people and companies are actively working on this subject. Most approaches use the ship’s navigational radar to first predict the wavefield surrounding the vessel and then calculate the motion response. One of the methods...

Presently, phasor measurement units (PMUs) are the most accurate and advanced time-synchronized technology. PMUs are the main element of the Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection and Control System, the concept that provides an estimate of the actual condition of the system, allowing operators to run online simulations and determine the possibility...

The Motion Reference Unit (MRU) is an important component in the Ampelmann Operation B.V. systems. In order to assess the performance of different MRUs a test system is developed. By using a one Degree of Freedom rail, wave motions can be simulated in the sway, surge and heave direction of a ship. The test system is divided in three parts:...

Volumetric light scattering caused by participating media has been and still is a complicated, but visually pleasing lighting effect that increases the sense of realism of digital scenes tremendously. Various solutions to rendering these effects in real-time exist, basing themselves upon the single scattering approximation. Transparency is...

Due to the transition in the energy market from fossil fuel to renewable energy sources it is expected that the total installed amount of photovoltaic (PV) energy will continue to increase. To make sure that all these PV systems work optimally it is essential to have a good way of monitoring these devices. In this project an open generic model...
