Newcastle University - School of Engineering

Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering

Sub Unit: Infrastructure

Salary: £27,285 to £28,936 (PhD not awarded)                                      
           £29,799 to £38,833 (PhD Awarded)

The group of Electrical Power in the School of Engineering, Newcastle University, and the National Centre for Energy Systems Integration (CESI) is working on a range of research projects that are seeking two researchers to work on smart grid and hybrid energy systems projects. This will entail modelling of power networks, investigation of smart grid topologies/architectures (like hybrid energy storage, demand side response and transport electrification), simulation and control of power systems.

You will have a PhD in area of research within power systems particularly smart grids. You will have a good understanding of power systems, smart grids, energy storage and transport electrification.

You will demonstrate significant skills in using power systems modelling tools such as IPSA/PSCAD/PyPOWER/MatLab/e-MEGA-SIM to model complex power systems and control. You will need to demonstrate skills with control methodologies, their applications in smart grids (e.g. energy storage and demand response) accounting for aspects such as uncertainty including forecasting. You will also need to have a good track record in journal publications.

There are two posts available which are fixed term for a period of two years
