Internship: Transient Analysis in Low-Inertia Power Systems

IEK-10 focuses on the optimal design and operation of integrated, decentralized energy systems with a high share of renewable energy. Computer simulation and numerical optimization are our essential tools to arrive at efficient, reliable and cost-effective solutions. We contribute both to the development of mathematical models and to the development of improved simulation methods and optimization algorithms. Our methods and software-tools are validated against operating data of real systems. Furthermore, we conduct comprehensive case studies in order to test and further improve the scalability and the performance of our models and algorithms. Specially adapted methods and codes enable us to exploit the potential of high performance computing with the aim of solving particularly large and complex problems.

Scope of the Internship:
The modern power grids are facing a gradual reduction of system inertia brought by the increasing installation of renewables. As a result, the influence of electro-magnetic transients to the grid is growing. Your task is to analyze the transient behaviors in low-inertia power systems with its mathematical formulations from an analytical perspective. You will be provided a cutting-edge high-performance computing infrastructure and powerful existing simulation environments to support your analysis.

Your Profile:

  • You are a student with good background in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Computational Engineering Science, or another related subject
  • Interest in mathematics, experiences in electric power system, control theory, etc. would be beneficial
  • Knowledge of Python, C/C++ or modeling languages is a plus but not mandatory
  • Fluent in English (spoken and written)
Our Profile:

  • Highly motivated scientists of different subject areas working together
  • Interdisciplinary work combining physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering
  • Intensive supervision by one or more experienced and helpful colleague(s)
  • Friendly and welcoming work environment
There is a salary and, due to the SARS-CoV-2 regulations, work is done in the home office. All necessary equipment (computers etc.) is provided. We are committed to equality and diversity and welcome applications from everyone! If you are interested, please send us your complete application.
