This thesis investigates the potential of a large pumping station in IJmuiden, the Nether-lands, for participating in Demand Response. Due to climate change, renewable energy is onthe rise. The intermittency of energy, together with its unpredictable supply, are a big hurdlefor the energy transition. Two methods are promising solutions to this...

Coda wave interferometry is a technique used in the field of seismology, which utilizes the later part of the signal (coda) to detect subtle changes in a medium. In recent years, the application of coda wave interferometry to concrete structure has been assessed for structural health monitoring purposes. Smart aggregate is a sensor which...

Purpose – One of the long-standing issues in the field of real estate management is the alignment of demand and supply. When building retrofit is initiated to comply with changing demands, the decision-maker has to deal with several, often competing, criteria. Smart systems have the potential to contribute to the process of optimally attuning...

Vanderlande Industries makes sorting machines for the parcel industry. One of these sorting machines is a sliding shoe sorter; the posisorter. Which ensures a positive, form closed, sorting action. Right now, the posisorter can handle 24.000 parcels per hour and is with that the market leader in high capacity sorting machines.

However,...

Human interaction with a smart speaker involves often distant automatic speech recognition (ASR). However, ASR is a rather cumbersome task at significantly high levels of noise. Most of commercial smart speakers in order to achieve high ASR accuracy they tend to reduce the playback signal once the preset keyword is detected. In an effort to...

Nowadays renewable energy sources (RES) are growing at a rapid pace, particularly the wind energy. The high amount of wind power penetration into the power grids poses a major challenge to Transmission System Operators (TSO) in terms of the operational management, as wind power is highly uncertain. The highly uncertain nature of the wind power...

Increased Feed-in of renewable energy sources and an increase of sales of electric vehicles (EVs) complicate balancing of demand and supply. EVs are considered core enablers for dealing with intermittency due to their storage potential. This does however require that these EVs are charged according to smart charging protocols, which is a vehicle...
