  • Exploring Tensions in a Mathematical Course for Engineers utilizing a Flipped Classroom Approach 

    Fredriksen, Helge; Hadjerrouit, Said; Monaghan, John David; Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne (Book; Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2017-02)
    Flipped Classroom approaches to teaching are becoming increasingly popular in higher education, but there is a lack of empirical research. We present here a study performed during an engineering course for 20 students at a Norwegian university, on student appropriation towards Flipped Classroom through interviews, questionnaire, video/quiz usage statistics and classroom filming. We approach this ...
  • Approaches to learning of linear algebra among engineering students 

    Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne (Peer reviewed; Book; Chapter, 2017-02)
    The present paper investigates engineering students` own descriptions of what they mean by learning of linear algebra and how they know that they have learned something. I seek to extract keywords from engineering students` descriptions of learning of this discipline by drawing on grounded theory techniques and classifying the answers in conceptual and procedural approaches. By this, both detailed ...

  • Når blir skipsfarten grønn? 

    Hoff, Bjarte; Østrem, Trond (Kronikk, 2018-04-25)
    n av utfordringene i forbindelse med dagens skipsfart er utslipp til luft, hovedsakelig karbondioksid og nitrogenoksider. Disse utslippene er knyttet til oljefyrte forbrenningsmotorer som dominerer dagens skipsflåte. Det er overveiende sannsynlig at det er en direkte sammenheng mellom global oppvarming og utslipp av klimagasser. Utslipp til luft kan også bidra til sur nedbør og svevestøv, for å nevne ...

  • Large-scale Wind Power Integration in Northern Norway 

    Singh, Arwinder (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-08-16)
    Norway has very high flexibility in energy production since hydropower covers about 95% of yearly energy demand. It is best to have a combination of wind and hydropower and hence it applies perfectly here in Norway. The performance of the wind farm can be significantly enhanced by employing full-capacity converters. The state-of-the-art literature study has been done on Squirrel Cage Induction ...

  • A Comparison on Development of Pumped Storage Hydropower in Europe and Asia. An Analytical Case Study based on Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Projects developed in Europe and Asia in period 2010-2017 

    Mishra, Parash Mani (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-06-15)
    "Energy consumption in European countries is increasing in significant amount each year. EU countries are becoming more concerned towards environmental safeguarding along with energy production. Wind and solar power have increased their market in many power systems in the recent decades and the main limitation is that they are greatly time dependent and are not available all the time to cope with ...
  • Multisensor video magnification 

    Shrestha, Dinesh (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-06-13)
    This study was performed with the three main goals. The first of which includes the implementation of “Eulerian Video Magnification” for the normal videos to observe the subtle changes that cannot be seen through the naked eyes. The second goal was to implement interpolation on thermal infrared videos. Finally, the third goal is to combine both the videos to amplify complex variations to reveal ...
  • Underactuated Waypoint Tracking of a Fixed-Wing UAV 

    Oland, Espen; Schlanbusch, Rune; Kristiansen, Raymond (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    In this paper a new method of performing waypoint tracking is shown for underactuated fixed-wing UAVs. The position error can be mapped onto the desired axis using a desired rotation matrix, while the velocity error can be mapped to the desired axis using a desired angular velocity. With all errors defined along one axis, the tracking problem is easily solved using only one thruster. A velocity ...
  • Underactuated Control of Quadrotors with Collision Avoidance 

    Oland, Espen; Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    In this paper a saturated controller is derived that solves the translational control problem for underactuated quadrotors. The controller is applied to multiple quadrotors during a formation reconfiguration where the quadrotors move from an initial position to a desired position. The null-space-based behavioral control method is a popular method for avoiding collisions between mobile agents, and ...
  • Real-Time Particle Tracking using a Formation of UAVs 

    Oland, Espen; Kristiansen, Raymond (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    In this paper the problem of real-time particle tracking is studied. Using sensor measurements, a formation of UAVs autonomously find the closest point with high particle density where they enter a holding pattern. After converging to the holding pattern, one UAV will remain, while the rest will go looking for other maxima. To avoid collisions between the UAVs during the mission, a controller is ...
  • Quaternion guidance and control of quadrotor 

    Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Peer reviewed; Conference object; Chapter, 2017-07-27)
    This paper addresses the problem of trajectory tracking for underactuated quadrotors. A quaternion based guidance law is proposed which feeds into an attitude control system based on a PD+ control law. The desired attitude from the guidance law is defined such that the attitude control system tries to align the position error along the axis of the translational actuator. Simulation results are ...
  • Path-following in three dimensions using quaternions for a fixed-wing UAV 

    Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Peer reviewed; Conference object; Chapter, 2017-08-08)
    This paper presents a three dimensional guidance strategy for fixed-wing UAVs using quaternions. The algorithm is based on constructing two quaternions, one which makes the UAV fly towards the path and one that makes the UAV follow the path. These two quaternions are then blended together such that the path-following objective is reached. The guidance algorithm is applied to a simple kinematic model ...
