As the power system grows more complex and active, equivalent models have become a solution for modelling parts of the network that have limited observability or are confidential or too complex to simulate otherwise. In the past decade, this topic has also made its way to distribution networks because of its transition towards an active network,...

Background: Health systems worldwide struggled to obtain sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic due to global supply chain disruptions. Our study’s aim was to create a proof-of-concept model that would simulate the effects of supply strategies under various scenarios, to ultimately help...

Although digitalization has become a prospect that is counted on for many problems in the construction industry, there have been limited attempts at exploring decision-making processes in construction firms concerning the integration of digital technologies and impacts beyond the projects. In this research, the system dynamics (SD) approach...

Freight transport decarbonization is challenging due to the slow implementation of policies to meet climate goals. This paper analyzes the dynamics of the implementation of freight decarbonization measures. A System Dynamics model was developed and applied to the Brazilian freight system to simulate the use of more sustainable modes and means...

District heating systems are considered a feasible heating alternative to replace natural gas to mitigate emissions in cities. However, urban transitions are very complex because energy systems often operate in densely populated areas, which gives rise to all kinds of interdependencies in cities. These interdependencies can result in...

Special Economic Zone (SEZ) development is becoming a preferable policy by the Indonesian government to boost economic growth in less-developed local regions. This is because of the promise that SEZ could attract investment and job creation based on local competitive commodities. One of these areas is Bitung SEZ, North Sulawesi - Indonesia, a...

This paper builds Wasserstein ambiguity sets for the unknown probability distribution of dynamic random variables leveraging noisy partial-state observations. The constructed ambiguity sets contain the true distribution of the data with quantifiable probability and can be exploited to formulate robust stochastic optimization problems with out...

Substance use disorders, particularly alcohol use disorder (AUD), are a major global health challenge, significantly impacting morbidity and mortality rates. In the Netherlands, around 20% of the population is affected by excessive alcohol consumption, with a notable treatment gap and disproportionate effects on the elderly. Despite increased...

The Netherlands is experiencing a significant increase in its aging population. Multi morbidity and a rapidly growing shortage of healthcare personnel are putting pressure on the healthcare system, leading to capacity issues. The capacity problems of care have medical, safety, social, and economic consequences. Policy measures are needed to...

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a leading cause of death globally, causing 38% of all premature deaths. Providing care for the patients who survive is considered a priority for healthcare managers. In the Netherlands, 1.7 million people currently are diagnosed with cardiovascular diseases. After experiencing and surviving a CVD event,...

The growing demand for parcel deliveries is causing significant problems for freight logistics, particularly in cities. The increasing number of delivery vehicles leads to traffic congestion, high emissions, and rising costs. To address these problems, new and sustainable delivery methods must be implemented for<br/>the parcel last-mile. However...

The Netherlands is subject to labour scarcity across a variety of industries. While labour scarcity has occurred in the past, only now the consequences of higher educational attainment have become prevalent in the Netherlands. Due to a shortage of vocational workers and a population that is getting older, circumstances ask for adequate policy...

Recent years have shown an increased level of food insecurity: a surge in the level of poverty and hunger in low-income countries caused by higher global food prices. One of the potential causes of the commodity price spikes is the process of financialization, including an increased level of financial speculation in food commodity markets....

Celsius or 1085 GtC. This thesis explores this significance and points toward prioritizing ecosystem conservation as a highly effective strategy for mitigating climate change. Initiatives such as carbon offsetting, performed by organizations like ‘8 billion trees’ and ‘cool earth’, could provide feasible solutions to enhance carbon sequestration...

The intellectual disability population increased from 65.545 people in 2011 to 116.200 people in 2020. In other words, the population almost doubled in less than ten years' time. Interventions are required to be able to make sure everyone receives the needed care. Therefore, the causes for the growth should be further examined before any...

With growing tensions in today's world, new powers rising and contesting old powers, two nations risk ending up in a so called security dilemma: One nation's increase in security threatens its opposing nation. The consequence could be the escalation of military buildups into arms races. With ongoing technological advancements, militaries around...

Identifiability of a single module in a network of transfer functions is determined by whether a particular transfer function in the network can be uniquely distinguished within a network model set, on the basis of data. Whereas previous research has focused on the situations that all network signals are either excited or measured, we develop...

The decarbonization of freight transport is currently a big challenge to tackle. One way of decarbonizing the sector is the modal shift towards the least polluting transport modes. This research aims to shed light on modal shift time dynamics in developing economies and considers whether a System Dynamics approach can assist with the policy...

The increasing penetration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices at the consumer level of power systems also increases the surface of attack for the so-called Manipulation of Demand through IoT (MaDIoT) attacks. This paper provides a comparison of the impact that MaDIoT attacks could have on power systems with different characteristics, such as...
