  1. 1. MetaStackVis: Visually-Assisted Performance Evaluation of Metamodels in Stacking Ensemble Learning

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Ilya Ploshchik; [2023]
    Keywords : Visualization; interaction; metamodels; validation metrics; predicted probabilities; stacking; stacked generalization; ensemble learning; machine learning;

    Abstract : Stacking, also known as stacked generalization, is a method of ensemble learning where multiple base models are trained on the same dataset, and their predictions are used as input for one or more metamodels in an extra layer. This technique can lead to improved performance compared to single layer ensembles, but often requires a time-consuming trial-and-error process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Using a GIS to enable an economic, land use and energy output comparison between small wind powered turbines and large-scale wind farms: the case of Oslo, Norway.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Colin Potter; [2023]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; Wind power; Renewable energy sources; urban wind energy; urban areas; planning; vertical axis wind turbines; comparative studies; urban integrated energy systems; Oslo; Roan; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Responding to an identified knowledge gap, the study aims to determine if smaller wind turbines located on top of existing urban buildings are more resource efficient (land utilization and economically) than large scale wind farms. To answer this question, using a GIS, the resource efficiency of the Roan wind farm in Northern Norway was compared to a theoretical modeled installation of small-scale wind turbines on top of buildings within a 2km radius study zone in central Oslo.

  3. 3. Improving the guidance, navigation and control design of the KNATTE platform

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Lars Lundström; [2023]
    Keywords : Multisensor Data Fusion; Nonlinear Kalman Filter; Neural Network;

    Abstract : For complex satellite missions that rely on agile and high-precision manoeuvres, the low-friction aspect of the space environment is a critical component in understanding the attitude control dynamics of the spacecraft. The Kinesthetic Node and Autonomous Table-Top Emulator (KNATTE) is a three-degree-of-freedom frictionless vehicle that serves as the foundation of a multipurpose platform for real-time spacecraft hardware-in-the-loop experiments, and allows emulation of these conditions in two dimensions with the purpose of validating various guidance, navigation, and control algorithms.

  4. 4. Energy savings potential of building envelope refurbishment in Swedish single-family houses

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Institutionen för information och teknik

    Author : Rami Kousah; [2023]
    Keywords : Energy savings; energy efficiency; cost efficiency; LCC; refurbishment; energy efficient measures; climate zones; Sweden; single-family house;

    Abstract : Sweden has ca. 2 million single family houses (SFH) housing 52% of the population and representing 44.6% of the overall heated floor area. SFHs account for 39. READ MORE

  5. 5. High-loaded thermophilic anaerobic digestion of mixed sewage sludge : A pilot study

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Santiago Elejalde Bolaños; [2022]
    Keywords : thermophilic anaerobic digestion; volatile fatty acids; mixed sludge; organic loading rate; alkalinity; wastewater treatment plant; termofil rötning; flyktiga fettsyror; blandslam; organisk belastning; alkalinitet; avloppsreningsverk;

    Abstract : Municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are important infrastructural components in a society and also important for sustainability. In a WWTP the most common treatment configuration is mechanical, biological, and chemical treatment of the wastewater. READ MORE
