We are excited to announce a fully-funded PhD studentship opportunity in the field of hybrid energy storage systems to support renewable energy integration. We are seeking a highly motivated and dedicated candidate to join our interdisciplinary team, working on cutting-edge research to develop innovative solutions for a sustainable future.
The global demand for clean and sustainable energy has been steadily increasing, driven by the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. Renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are playing a crucial role in this transition. However, the variable and intermittent nature of these resources poses challenges in maintaining power grid stability and reliability.
This research project aims to address these challenges by developing advanced hybrid energy storage systems that seamlessly combine multiple energy storage technologies, along with synchronous condensers, to support the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. The successful candidate will work on the design, modelling, and control of the hybrid system to facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. The primary objectives of the project are:
This project is funded by Lancaster University. The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fees and a standard tax-free RCUK stipend (currently £17,668 p.a. tax free) for 3.5 years for UK applicants. Non-UK students are welcome to apply, but the funding will only cover the cost of overseas tuition fees for three years and the applicant would need to self-fund their living cost. The successful candidate is expected to start in October 2023.
