Long before the existence of today’s computer, information and communication technologies, the design of current energy grids has been set. Nowadays, ‘conventional’ energy grids – including electricity, gas and thermal grids – are being transformed into smart grids, which consist of various technological components such as smart meters, energy...

The appearance of circular economy has been raised as a solution to rapidly diminishing resources and waste issues that constant economic growth entail. The transition from the current linear economy in which we take, make, use, and dispose of resources to a circular economy in which waste becomes raw material is expected to close material loop....

The value of travel time saving(VOTTS) is very important in cost benefit analysis(CBA) as it is used to calculate the monetary gain in case of an improvement in transport that leads to reduction in travel time. Although it is easy to directly calculate monetary gains due to a speed improvement, monetary gains due to transport service improvement...

In this thesis we model extreme log-returns on economic variables and apply this to Ortec Finance's model. These extreme log-returns are relevant for risk management applications such as Value-at-Risk and other measures of tail risk. We use extreme value theory to simulate economic variables with the desired tail behaviour. We pay special...

In case such a mismatch occurs, the bank is exposed to the risk that it is unable to meet its payment obligations at the time expected. A liquidity buffer could help to...

This MSc thesis presents a stochastic modelling approach to the multi-period airline fleet planning problem. Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) is used to model the impact of demand uncertainty on fleet decisions. The proposed ADP algorithm applies local value function approximations resulting from Gaussian kernel regressions to estimate...

Monuments are often not energy efficient, yet improving the energy performance without harming the cultural values is still a complex process. By only conserving a building without making adaptations, a mismatch can arise between the demand of the user and the building. Next to that, using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to assess the...

In general, people and environment are two main properties in today’s strategy plans of urban development, which are also essential elements of urban design (Carmona et al, 2010). Designers promote more on human dimension design that reflects spatial dimension of environment such as the eye level city in their urban design topics. Gehl (2010)...
