Job description

Job summary

Applicants are invited to apply for a Research Associate (RA) position funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to investigate fundamentally new analytical and data-driven approaches, develop new models and analysis tools, and perform comprehensive studies and analyses for the scheduling of future low-/zero-inertia power system.

The main objective is to develop efficient mathematical formulations to describe the spatial-temporal system dynamic evolution under increasing power-electronic interference-devices and system uncertainties, and incorporate them into steady-state system operation and optimization. 

Duties and responsibilities

You will take research initiatives and carry out research programmes in the area of advanced system modelling, planning and operation optimisation for future zero-emission energy system.

You will investigate novel methodologies and models for evaluating and optimising investment and operational performance of low-/zero-inertia power system. Alternative approaches will be investigated to represent system dynamics and model multiple sources of uncertainty.

Advanced stochastic and robust optimization techniques will be investigated to achieve optimal system scheduling under multi-resolution uncertainties. The developed modelling tools will be capable of identifying opportunities for strategic investment and optimal utilization of emerging flexible technologies to facilitate a cost-effective transition to zero-emission systems.

Essential requirements

You must hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Energy Systems, Operational Research, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related subject.

You must also meet the following criteria:

  • Experience in modelling of power system dynamics and operation
  • Experience with advanced optimisation under uncertainty
  • Familiarity with systems analysis software
  • Excellent written English evidenced through publications or similar, commensurate with career stage 
  • Mathematical and programming ability 
  • Ability to communicate with scientists and researchers from a variety of disciplines

Further information

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.
