Performance of wide band gap switching devices in DC/DC converters of electric vehicles
Low losses fast switching wide band gap (WBG) semiconductors, such as Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC), are becoming viable candidates for DC/DC converters switches in the powertrain of electric vehicle (EV). ...
Development and investigation of compressed air only and hybrid powering options
Currently, significant resources are deployed to investigate electric and pneumatic vehicles in response to environmental, energy and consumer pressures. The goal of this thesis is to show conceptual development, analyze, ...
Utilization of thermal plasma for conversion of thermoplastic waste to oil products in a pyrolysis reaction
Chemical recycling of waste plastics has gained attention in last decade with nearly 170 million tonnes of deposited waste plastics annually. A chemical process known as pyrolysis converts thermoplastic waste to oil products. ...
Development of FEA wide-base truck tire and soil interaction models
Tires are considered one of the most important components of ground vehicles as they are the only link between the chassis and ground. They support the vehicle weight and cushion road surface irregularities to provide a ...
Joint relay beamforming and transceiver processing in multiuser relay network
In this thesis, we focus on joint relay beamforming and transceiver processing in multiuser relay network. First of all, we consider the scenario in which multiple source-to-destination (S-D) pairs intend to communicate ...

Time-frequency analysis techniques for non-intrusive load monitoring
The work in this thesis examines time-frequency analysis techniques and in particular the wavelet transform to extract the features contained within the electrical load signals. A novel approach that is based on wavelet ...
Development and validation of a driver distraction alert system for highway driving using a truck driving simulator
Driver distraction is one of the major causes of vehicle accidents, injuries, fatalities and economical losses in Canada and across the world. The main objective of this thesis is to develop a real time driver distraction ...
Development of a layerless additive manufacturing stereolithography machine to improve surface quality and dimensional accuracy
Stereolithography (SLA) is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) process that has recently gained significant popularity in manufacturing research. The material used in SLA is a photocurable resin. SLA fabrication has conventionally ...
