  1. 1. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Active Phase Balancing and Battery Systems for Peak Power Reduction in Residential Real Estate : An Economic Feasibility Study

    University essay from KTH/Industriell Management

    Author : Jacob Westerberg; [2020]
    Keywords : Phase balancer; Load-side peak shaving; Economic feasibility; Techno-economic assessment; Battery energy storage system; Stockholm Exergi; Fasbalansering; Topputjämning; Ekonomisk genomförbarhet; Tekno-ekonomisk analys; Batterisystem; Stockholm Exergi;

    Abstract : Research has shown that three-phase balancing alone can improve the operation of secondary distribution networks and that the addition of energy storage to the phase balancing power electronics further helps to alleviate the negative effects of phase unbalances. However, less attention has been paid to the economic potential of said technologies and particularly for loadside implementation. READ MORE

  3. 3. ASSET-LIABILITY MANAGEMENT FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A PENSION FOUNDATION : SIMULATION AND EVALUATION OF INVESTMENT- AND PORTFOLIO SELECTION STRATEGIES

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

  4. 4. Memory Measurement and Message Usage Improvement on an Elevator Embedded System

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Tomas Arleklint; [2019]
    Keywords : Embedded system; memory usage; communication protocol; message usage.; Inbyggda system; minnesanvändning; kommunikationsprotokoll; meddelandeanvändning.;

    Abstract : All embedded systems are unique, a design that is suitable for one system can rarely be copied over to another. This inherently makes designing embedded systems difficult. The difficulty is only amplified by the uncertainty of the future requirements as it is developed over time. READ MORE

  5. 5. Blockchain Technology in the Energy Transition : An Exploratory Study on How Electric Utilities Can Approach Blockchain Technology

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik; KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Charlotta Edeland; Therese Mörk; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The blockchain activity within the energy sector is high, and the list of use cases is continuouslygrowing. The distributed and immutable nature of blockchain technology could potentially beleveraged to accelerate the ongoing transition to more decentralized and digitalised energy systemsand to address some of the challenges the industry is facing.
