Design and control of hybrid power and propulsion systems for smart ships: A review of developments


"Power and propulsion of ships need to reduce fuel consumption and increase versatility. This paper classifies ship propulsion topologies into mechanical, electrical and hybrid propulsion, and power supply topologies into combustion, electrochemical, stored and hybrid power supply. We review opportunities and challenges of hybrid architectures and advanced control strategies that can reduce fuel c..." [More...]

Synchromodal container transportation: an overview of current topics and research opportunities


"Renewed attention has emerged for the topic of intermodal transportation. Since a couple of years, research has focused on the concept of synchromodality. Synchromodality refers to creating the most efficient and sustainable transportation plan for all orders in an entire network of different modes and routes, by using the available flexibility. In this paper we provide an overview of relevant res..." [More...]

Survey on autonomous surface vessels: Part II - Categorization of 60 prototypes and future applications


"Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) have been developed for more than 20 years. Many ASV projects have been successfully realized, and as many are still under development. In literature there is a lack in research about different applications and suitable environments for the deployment of ASV. In our previous paper [44], we introduced the emerging concept of autonomous vessels. A multi-layer multi-..." [More...]

Hybrid model predictive control using time-instant optimization for the Rhine-Meuse Delta


"In order to provide safety against high sea water levels, in many low-lying countries on the one hand dunes are maintained at a certain safety level and dikes are built, while on the other hand large control structures that can be dynamically controlled are constructed. Currently, these structures are often operated purely locally, without coordination on actions between different structures. Auto..." [More...]

Closed-loop scheduling and control of waterborne AGVs for energy-efficient Inter Terminal Transport


"We propose closed-loop energy-efficient scheduling and control of an autonomous Inter Terminal Transport (ITT) system using waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs). A novel pick-up and delivery problem considering safe intervals between berthing time slots of different waterborne AGVs is proposed. Waterborne AGVs are controlled in a cooperative distributed way to carry out assigned ..." [More...]

Centralization or decentralization: A comparative analysis of port regulation modes


"This paper studies the comparison of two kinds of port regulation modes - the centralization mode and the decentralization mode - using principal-agent theory and dynamic game theory. The optimal tariffs, port capacities and port efficiency levels under these two regulation modes are determined. The theoretical results are applied to the container terminals in Port of Shanghai in China. Sensitivit..." [More...]
