PhD Scholarship in Model-based Optimal Energy Operation and Management Strategies for Multi-energy Industrial Symbiosis

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship at Technical University of Denmark. Applications should be sent before September 30, 2019.

The Center for Electric Power an Energy at the Department of Electrical Engineering invites applicants for a 3-year PhD position in the area of "Model-based optimal energy operation and management strategies for multi-energy industrial symbiosis with high share of renewables". The project will build on recent research works and achievements in integrated energy systems and market-based flexibility management at DTU.

A multi-energy industrial symbiosis is a powerful mechanism for creating a circular economy and innovative revenue streams by simply letting stakeholders sited in the same industrial region work together.The objective of this PhD project is to develop multi-objective oriented energy management and operation strategies, to be applied in a live Danish industrial symbiosis example with highly integrated electricity, heat and gas infrastructure and high share of renewables, i.e. GreenLabSkive.The developed strategies shall support decision-makings forshort-term scheduling and real-time dispatch of the regional multi-energy system,considering various revenue streams, operational limitsof individual plants and energy networks, and temporal features of various information flows e.g. forecasts of energy prices.

The proposed PhD study will develop model-based operation and management strategies for a live Danish industrial symbiosis that consists of combined heat and power plant, wind and solar power plants, electrolysis, biogas plant, energy storage units and electricity/heat/gas networks. In addition to developing dynamic models of the involved technologies and energy networks, the PhD project intends to answer the following research questions: Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The ideal candidate has experience withenergysystem modeling(electricity/heat/gas), optimization, electricity markets, and with an interest in programming. Preference will be given to candidates with: Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
