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.

Cette thèse présente SPLAY, un système intégré qui facilite la conception, le déploiement et les expérimentations des systèmes distribués à grande échelle. SPLAY couvre toutes les étapes du développement à l'évaluation. Il permet à des développeurs d'exprimer des algorithmes de manière simple et concise dans un langage proche du pseudo-code que l'on peut trouver dans les...

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...
