Online disturbance prediction for enhanced availability in smart grids

Kaitovic, Igor ; Malek, Miroslaw (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2017 ; 2017INFO011.

A gradual move in the electric power industry towards Smart Grids brings new challenges to the system's efficiency and dependability. With a growing complexity and massive introduction of renewable generation, particularly at the distribution level, the number of faults and, consequently, disturbances (errors and failures) is expected to increase significantly. This threatens to compromise...

SPLAY : a toolkit for the design and evaluation of large scale distributed systems

Leonini, Lorenzo ; Felber, Pascal (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2014.

This thesis presents SPLAY, an integrated system that facilitates the design, deployment and testing oflarge-scale distributed applications. SPLAY covers all aspects of the development and evaluation chain. It allows developers to express algorithms in a concise, simple language that highly resembles pseudo-code found in research papers. The execution environment has low overheads and...

Ein nachhaltiges Supply Chain Bewertungsmodell unter besonderer Berücksichtigung zeitlicher Wettbewerbsfaktoren

Glässer, Dominik ; Reiner, Gerald (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012 ; 2253.

The focus of the dissertation which deals with the topic of Operations management is on supply chain management and on the assessability of dynamic interactions of lead time with regard to overall performance of the system. Based on progressive globalization (Reiner et al. 2008) which results in competitive pressure from low-wage countries and based on higher service requirements of customers,...

Supply chain performance : the impact of interactions between flexibility enablers and uncertainty

Nieto, Yvan ; Reiner, Gerald (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2011 ; 2237.

This doctoral dissertation in the field of Supply Chain Management focuses on the dynamic interactions between uncertainty, flexibility, and performance in the supply chain. In particular, it provides evidence that the improvements related to uncertainty reduction practices are modulated by the flexibility enablers engaged by the companies involved in the supply network. Consequently, it...

Structural simulation in international trade = Simulazione strutturale nel commercio internazionale

Ramírez, Vicente ; Tonella, Giorgio (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2002 ; 2002ECO001.

This thesis explores a way of representing the structure of the international trade system and of understanding its behaviour. Its main contribution is a model, developed following computer simulation methodology, that deals with interactions and interdependencies in international trade, and consequently, with the study of patterns of trade and trading bloc formation. The simulation model allows...
