Statkraft – Strategic Bidding in a Primary Reserve Auction

In any electric system, the generation has to match the consumption at all times. In the European interconnected (UCTE) grid, this balance is maintained by Primary Reserve. The four German grid operators procure their demand of Primary Reserve by means of a monthly auction, which results are publicly accessible. Generation units that can participate inView problem details

NXP – Routing for Analog Chip Designs at NXP Semiconductors

The increasing demand for smaller, faster, and multi-functional electronic devices such as smartphones is one of the driving forces in the semiconductor industry. Combined with requirements on power usage, sustainability, and wireless functionality this is generating challenges in several domains. During the design of the layout, which is a representation of the chip in shapesView problem details

NFI – Statistical Modelling of Pre-Impact Velocities in Car Crashes

Causing a lethal vehicle accident as a driver is a serious offense. Especially if driving speed was excessive, imprisonment for a substantial time is likely. The Netherlands Forensic Institute is frequently asked to estimate driving speed based on accident scene data. Estimation is based on a physics model that simulates the crash itself and theView problem details

Marin – Analysis of a Model for Ship Maneuvering

Traditionally, the study of the hydromechanical behaviour of ships (and floating bodies in general) is divided into ship hydrostatics (without motions in calm water) and ship hydrodynamics (with motions in either calm water or in waves and/or current). The area of ship hydrodynamics can be roughly divided into powering/propulsion and calm water resistance, seakeeping (motionsView problem details

Deltares – Optimal Flood Control

We are interested in the most appropriate way of formulating optimum control problems for heterogeneous, partially controllable water resources systems. These systems often need implicit time-stepping schemas for avoiding restrictive stability criteria. This distinguishes them from most technical systems on which control is applied. We are interested in various methods to solve the optimal controlView problem details

Chess – Node Counting in Wireless Ad-hoc Networks

A defining characteristic of wireless ad hoc networks is their dynamic behavior. In practice, it is not uncommon to find that the topology of even a small network deployed in a controlled environment changes from one moment to the next, without apparent changes to the layout of the nodes. This behavior stems from the inherentView problem details
