  4. 4. Production Ergonomics: Identifying and managing risk in the design of high performance work systems

    University dissertation from Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Patrick Neumann; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reumatologi; Organizational science; Organisationsteori; Production technology; Produktionsteknik; muskelsystem; Skelett; rheumatology locomotion; muscle system; Skeleton; Risk Assessment; Manufacturing; Musculoskeletal disorders; Human Factors; Organisational Development; Production System Design; Strategy;

    Abstract : Poor ergonomics in production systems can compromise performance and cause musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which pose a huge cost to society, companies, and afflicted individuals. This thesis presents a research trajectory through the problem space by: 1) Identifying and quantifying workplace risk factors for MSDs, 2) Identifying how these risks may relate to production strategies, and 3) Developing an approach to integrating ergonomics into a companies’ regular development work.

  5. 5. Configuration study of large wind parks

    University dissertation from Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Lundberg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; production cost; PCC; power quality; offshore; HVDC; wind parks; DC DC converters; control; losses; configurations; flicker; energy capture;

    Abstract : In this thesis, layouts of various large-scale wind parks, using both AC as well as DC, are investigated. Loss modelling of the wind park components as well as calculations of the energy capture of the turbines using various electrical systems are performed, and the energy production cost of the various park configurations is determined.
