System Dynamics (SD) is an approach to study the nonlinear behaviour of complex systems over time. SD models provide a high­level understanding of the system and aid in designing policies to achieve specific system behaviours. Conventional SD modelling requires an intensive amount of time, human resources and effort. Applying Machine Learning ...

A dynamic power system model cannot perfectly predict the behaviour of a physical power system. Model validation tries to answer the question whether the model predicts the behaviour of the physical system sufficiently. This study evaluates if and how a dynamic power system model of the Dutch power grid can be validated using PMU measurements....

China is undergoing massive changes in order to tackle their carbon dioxide emissions problem. Aside from the problem of climate change, it is facing another problem – that of air pollution. Use of dirty fuels by residential households such as biomass and coal cause emissions harmful for the environment, as well as to the health of citizens. In...

High penetration of rooftop PV generation in the distribution network increases the variability of power flows and the frequency of network and hence congestions occurs at various network locations of the network. Congestions have various defects such as it deteriorates network performance, power quality and therefore can lead to a shutdown by...

The Netherlands is becoming increasingly diverse, amongst other things, due to ethnicity, religion, and urbanity. These diverse societies cluster in districts all across the Netherlands. There is an increase in tension between social groups, especially between people with and without migration background. Data analysis is used to measure 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...

This research examined the effect of an improved road network on the factors economic growth, road safety, emissions, education, health, employment and tourism in developing countries. A case study is conducted on the country Namibia in Southern Africa. A System Dynamics (SD) model is developed to assess the effects of future scenarios in terms...

The frequency and severity of natural disasters is increasing worldwide, leading to a growing number of people struggling to survive. While climate related natural disasters affect large portions of the world, communities who are already struggling to survive due to conflict, insecurity or poverty are hit the most. In fragile states, slowly...

Wind farms are currently built in the North Sea in the Netherlands. The grid connecting the off-shore wind farm to the main-land distribution grid must be protected against short-circuits and other electrical disturbances. In this project is studied if electrical protection of a grid is suitable for grids connecting renewable energy sources to...

Market organisation on energy networks is increasingly complex due to frequent emergence of new markets within and related to energy infrastructure. This research is conducted in cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, and analyses the impacts of role demarcation policies on the development of the electric...

The need for advanced ship propulsion control systems is constantly increasing as the demand for high vessel performance is growing at the same time. Speed trials are considered as an operation during which the vessel has to achieve the highest performance by attaining the agreed maximum ship speed. However, sometimes vessels have to sail in...

Many societal, environmental and technological challenges can be characterized as wicked problems by virtue of being difficult to understand, define and solve. examples include sustainable management and consumption of resources, resilient technical infrastructure or curbing plastic pollution of the oceans. One method of tackling such wicked...

Traffic congestion has proven to be a wicked problem that is affecting people's economy and health. Until now, traditional policies have not yet been able to solve the problem entirely. To tackle such a challenge, new innovative measures are needed. Mobility as a Service (MaaS), a new paradigm in mobility where all modes of transportation are...

This study approached migration-related problems from a global perspective. The inter- connected nature of migration means that migration problems accumulate and intensify throughout the world. To capture these effects, a data-rich model component was devel- oped for global migration dynamics.<br/>To that extent, this study has developed the...

The need for water, energy, and food resources is central to human being. Demand of these resources will increase as global population increases. By 2050 it is expected that combination of population growth and economic development will lead to 50% increase of global water and food demand, while energy demand will be doubled. Addressing...

The common description of the configuration of stuff in a room, one of order (tidy) and chaos (messy), fails to explain the phenomenon that artifacts create structures around people and activities in a space, with both functional and cognitive properties. This form of organization, that is recognizable on various scale levels, emerges...

Vehicle automation has the potential to disrupt the status quo of urban transportation, because it adds a new mode of transportation by taking away the task of the driver. The projections of estimations of the impacts of this new technology are based on many uncertainties and are thus largely unknown. A literature review showed that a wide...

Cities are rapidly transforming, and infrastructures are not always resistant to these future developments. On a global scale cities are growing into mega cities, whilst counter urbanization causes significant population declines. To adapt infrastructures against these future developments, infrastructure asset management can be applied. <br/><br...

Due to the shift in electrical energy generation from thermal synchronous generators towards various renewable sources, power system stability will become a more pressing issue in the near future. In this thesis, we explore possible improvements to the dynamic grid model currently used by TenneT TSO for large-disturbance stability studies,...
