This research evaluates various linear quadratic control techniques, with a particular focus on loop transfer recovery methods, to enhance the safety and robustness of flight control systems. It aims to address the limitations of classical control strategies in managing complex, multivariable systems by implementing advanced recovery mechanisms....

Soft robots are characterized by compliant elements that introduce heightened kinematic complexity compared to their rigid counterparts. Such systems, with infinite degrees of freedom, are inherently underactuated, making precise real-time shape regulation a challenging task. Model-based controllers, utilizing tractable reduced-order modelling...

The Netherlands is facing a housing crisis, marked by shortages and escalated prices. The Affordable Rent Bill aims to further regulate the private rental segment and improve the position of middle-income groups depend- ent on this segment. However, increased rent regula- tions and the recently introduced taxation measure Tax Plan 2023 decrease...

Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

Flow-based market coupling is a critical element of the electricity market in Europe. Transmission System Operators determine the commercial transmission capacity that can be implicitly traded in a zonal day-ahead market. However, this entails a trade-off: higher commercial transmission capacities increase market efficiency, affecting the...

Assessing real-world emissions from buses and taxis is vital to comprehend their impact on urban air quality. Such vehicles differ significantly from the majority of the fleet owing to their higher mileage rates. However, few studies have focused on specifically assessing the emissions from this segment of the vehicle fleet. In this context,...

Approximate dynamic programming (ADP) faces challenges in dealing with constraints in control problems. Model predictive control (MPC) is, in comparison, well-known for its accommodation of constraints and stability guarantees, although its computation is sometimes prohibitive. This paper introduces an approach combining the two methodologies...

Most regulatory elements, especially enhancer sequences, are cell population-specific. One could even argue that a distinct set of regulatory elements is what defines a cell population. However, discovering which non-coding regions of the DNA are essential in which context, and as a result, which genes are expressed, is a difficult task. Some...

The private rented sector (PRS) plays an increasingly important role in accommodating young people and migrants in China’s metropolitan cities. However, the PRS in China is still underdeveloped, as evidenced by, e.g. a low degree of professionalisation, lack of basic rental laws and regulations, and poor housing experiences of tenants. The...

As aviation recovers to pre-pandemic levels large amounts of Air Traffic Flow Management delay also return, as the traffic at airports and in airspaces reaches their old levels. These delays have a yearly cost of around 500 million euros in the European Civil Aviation Conference area and are detrimental to the experience of passengers. This...

The Nederlandse- Voedsel en Warenautoriteit (NVWA) asked the at-first-sight simple question of how to combine risk-based and random methods for inspection. Risk-based and random inspection methods have contrasting incentives. Risk-based inspection increases efficiency and allocates resources efficiently but fails to regulate low and emergent...

With the rapid advancement of technology, we are moving towards a society that is increasingly driven by computer intelligence. At the same time, we are facing pressing environmental issues that are pushing us towards cleaner solutions. One industry that is heavily influenced by these two factors is the automotive industry, where autonomous...

Currently, our society faces a pressing challenge: global warming. The solution lies in the energy transition, which replaces fossil fuels with clean sources. This requires a global effort across all sectors, including shipping. While a significant portion of shipping relies on polluting fuels, the European Union’s Green Deal aims for climate...

Medical equipment supplied to low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are often substandard and inappropriate to the contextual needs. The majority of equipment entering these countries are donated or financed by external agencies. Procurement of equipment also happens through public tendering. However, the assessment and management of the...

In this study, the aim is to find out how Erasmus MC can properly prepare for the AI Act. An iterative design approach was utilized to explore what AI project members may experience during this regulatory process. Several factors have emerged during this experimental study, including the allocation of responsibility, the importance of education...

Anxiety is a natural “fight-or-flight” response that everybody experiences to perceived stress or threat. Even though it is a natural response, some individuals struggle with managing their anxiety levels in a healthy manner. Prolonged exposure to high anxiety states can lead to clinical anxiety disorders that negatively impact the quality of...

The central question for this thesis project was how you can design outfits and garments that deliberately influence or induce moods. The focus of this project was on both a cheerful mood, as well as on a relaxed mood. It became apparent that the relation between moods and fashion is constructed of many facets. There are materialistic properties...

In order to track the speed profile, a case study using a linear quadratic regulator (LQR) is addressed in this paper. A time-invariant nonlinear train motion model is constructed. To apply LQR, the quadratic term of the aerodynamic drag and the rolling mechanical resistance is linearized. Gradient resistance, curve resistance, and other...
