  1. 1. Introduction of UXV assets into naval fleet architectures through an MILP based fleet modelling tool

    University essay from KTH/Marina system

    Author : Sjoerd Jan Sinnema; [2021]
    Keywords : Numerical cost optimization; Naval fleet modelling; UXV integration; MILP programming; Maritime engineering; Numerisk kostnadsoptimering; flottmodellering; UXV -integration; MILP -programmering; sjöfartsteknik;

    Abstract : The problem of fleet design and fleet modelling; for decades problems regarding determining fleet sizes and optimized routing problems have formed the groundwork into the fleet design and fleet optimization for a wide range of business sectors. In most of these problems only single entities or fixed design resources are optimized for a certain route and delivery objective based on minimizing operational costs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transmission Modeling for Optimization of Electric Powertrains

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Maskinelement

    Author : Jacob Lundborg; Johanna Hulth Olsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Electric vehicle transmission; multi-objective optimization; mass minimization; power loss minimization; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Over the last decade, the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the world's roads has rapidly increased. Optimization of power consumption in electric powertrains will, therefore, lead to reduced energy usage in the road transport sector. READ MORE

  3. 3. Geographical Mapping of the Building Envelope Surface Optimal Optical Properties Minimizing the Energy used to Maintain Indoor Conditions

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Alejandro Rodríguez-Urdaneta; [2020]
    Keywords : buildings; energy efficiency; energy savings; energy simulations.; edificios; eficiencia energética; ahorro de energía; simulaciones energéticas.;

    Abstract : Several studies have shown that the buildings envelope optical properties are important in terms of energy use and thermal comfort level. However, no study has been found in regard of the optimal optical properties for the building envelope. READ MORE

  4. 4. Topology optimization with optimal spatially varying length scale

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Stefan Lopar; [2020]
    Keywords : Topology optimization; Varying length scale; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Density based topology optimization has become an efficient way to design optimal complex structures with different goals, constraints and boundary conditions. To regularize the solution, density filters are utilized and is controlled by the length scale. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and Optimization of a Sodium-Molten Salt Heat Exchanger for Concentrating Solar Power applications

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Salvatore Guccione; [2020]
    Keywords : Concentrating solar power CSP ; liquid sodium; advanced molten salt; chloride salt; heat exchanger HX ; shell and tube; CSP Gen3 Liquid-Phase Pathway; Modelica; Termisk solkraft; CSP; flytande natrium; avancerat smält salt; kloridsalt; värmeväxlare HX ; skal och rör; CSP Gen3 Liquid-Phase Pathway; Modelica;

    Abstract : Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is one of the most promising renewable energybased electricity generation technologies to deal with the increasing demand of power consumption and environmental sustainability. With the aim of achieving the 2020 SunShot cost target for CSP of 60 USD/MWh, the United States Department of Energy presented, in May 2018, the Gen3 CSP initiative. READ MORE
