  1. 1. Energy system operation by Lagrangian relaxation

    Author : Erik Dotzauer; Andrew B. Philpott; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Due to its relatively high total energy efficiency, the application of cogeneration, i.e. simultaneous exploitation of power and heat from the energy transformation process, is receiving increased attention. In many countries cogeneration is today an essential element in the energy supply system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mathematical modelling and methodology for cost optimization of variable renewable electricity integration

    Author : Caroline Granfeldt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cost optimization; variation management; variable renewable electricity; variable splitting; electricity system modelling; consensus algorithm; Lagrangian relaxation; wind power integration; long-term investment models;

    Abstract : The global production of electricity contributes significantly to the release of carbon dioxide emissions. Therefore, a transformation of the electricity system is of vital importance in order to restrict global warming. READ MORE

  3. 3. Decomposition Methods for Combinatorial Optimization

    Author : Uledi Ngulo; Torbjörn Larsson; Nils-Hassan Quttineh; Egbert Mujuni; Athanasios Migdalas; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at research in the field of combinatorial optimization. Problems within this field often posses special structures allowing them to be decomposed into more easily solved subproblems, which can be exploited in solution methods. These structures appear frequently in applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Marginal Productivity Indices and Linear Programming Relaxations for Dynamic Resource Allocation in Queueing Systems

    Author : Jianhua Cao; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Markov decision process; Indexability; Linear programming; Queueing theory; Optimization;

    Abstract : Many problems concerning resource management in modern communication systems can be simplified to queueing models under Markovian assumptions. The computation of the optimal policy is however often hindered by the curse of dimensionality especially for models that support multiple traffic or job classes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computation of Autonomous Safety Maneuvers Using Segmentation and Optimization

    Author : Pavel Anistratov; Lars Nielsen; Björn Olofsson; Jan Åslund; Jonas Fredriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis studies motion planning for future autonomous vehicles with main focus on passenger cars. By having automatic steering and braking together with information about the environment, such as other participants in the traffic or obstacles, it would be possible to perform autonomous maneuvers while taking limitations of the vehicle and road–tire interaction into account.
