Planning inland vessel operations in large seaports using a two-phase approach


"Inland vessels are often used to transport containers between large sea ports and the hinterland. Each time a vessel arrives in such a port, it typically visits several terminals to load and unload containers. In the Port of Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe, there are 77,000 inland vessels that have moored in the port in 2014 for transporting cargo. With the significant growth of containerize..." [More...]

Supervisory nonlinear MPC for emergency voltage control using pattern search


"The design of a higher-layer controller using model predictive control (MPC) is considered. The higher-layer controller uses MPC to determine set-points for controllers in a lower control layer. In this paper the use of an object-oriented model of the system for making predictions is proposed. When employing such an object-oriented prediction model the MPC problem is a nonlinear, non-smooth optimi..." [More...]

Closed-loop coordination of inland vessels operations in large seaports using hybrid logic-based Benders decomposition


"This paper addresses two coordination problems that exist in the waterborne transport in large seaports, the long time of stay of inland vessels and insufficient terminal and quay crane planning with respect to their sailing schedules. A novel coordination model is proposed and tackled using logic-based Benders decomposition and Large Neighborhood Search. In addition, a closed-loop perspective is ..." [More...]

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...]

Distributed model predictive control for cooperative synchromodal freight transport


"This paper investigates cooperative synchromodal freight transport planning among multiple intermodal freight transport operators in different and interconnected service networks. The cooperative planning is formulated as a cooperative model predictive container flow control problem, and solved with three Distributed Model Predictive Flow Control (DMPFC) approaches: the parallel and serial Augment..." [More...]
