Consumer roles in the future electricity system
Electricity systems are complicated and are becoming more complicated as they accommodate social demands, political demands, and consumer demands. The aim of this thesis is to increase our understanding of consumer roles ...
Analysing irregularity and complexity in short-length heart rate variability signals
Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a powerful non-invasive means to help diagnose several cardiac ailments. The non-linear and non-stationary nature of HRV necessitates the use of non-linear statistics such as ...
Electrohydrodynamic printing of all metal oxide electronics
Current design and fabrication methodologies for electronic circuits are both time consuming and prohibitively costly. The processes for building transistors and other circuit components require multiple stages including ...
Learning sparse methods for multi-subject brain data analysis via dictionary learning
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a non-invasive neuroimaging technique that has emerged as one of the most utilized imaging modalities for mapping brain regions involved in the cognitive processes. In recent ...
Multi-observer approach for estimation and control under adversarial attacks
Traditional control systems composed of interconnected controllers, sensors, and actuators use point-to-point communication architectures. This is no longer suitable when new requirements -- such as modularity, decentralisation ...
LIDAR-assisted exact output regulation for multi-megawatt wind turbines
Wind energy is free and accessible almost everywhere on earth. Nevertheless, the utilization of wind energy is associated with the costs of the material, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, and operation. These factors ...
Optimal and Game-theoretic Resource Allocations for Multiuser Wireless Energy-Harvesting and Communications Systems
The fifth generation (5G) of wireless cellular networks will see a paradigm shift towards extreme base station densification with massive amounts of data transmissions, massive number of mobile users, and massive number ...
Demand side management in low voltage networks with thermal storage of residential buildings
This thesis investigates the impact of the thermal inertia of residential buildings on electricity demand. The analysis demonstrates the significant potential of residential buildings in providing technical and financial ...
Selected topics on massive MIMO networks
Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology promises to deliver substantial gains in spectral efficiency and is set to play an important role in next generation mobile networks. This thesis examines the key ...
Energy efficiency of wireless network using coordinated gated narrow beams
With the ever-increasing demand for wireless service and higher data rate, the wireless network has experienced an unprecedented growth worldwide in the past decade and it is expected to grow continuously. Energy efficiency ...
