Research Assistant (PostDoc) - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen
part-time employment may be possible
In the context of the 7th Energy Research Program, the project "Resilient Energy Management System for Microgrids with Focus on Volatile Renewable Generation (RESUME)" is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK). It is a joint project in cooperation with Autarsys GmbH.
For the project, a qualified postdoc research assistant is being sought. Being part of a team consisting of two research assistants and one student assistant, the person will work on finding solutions for scientific problems arising in the robust and resilient EMS design and on implementation and testing aspects. This also involves cooperation with the responsible persons at Autarsys GmbH.
Real-world microgrid (MG) operation requires a high degree of resiliency. An MG should operate reliably and economically meaningful despite uncertainty and possible malfunctioning of equipment. For handling the volatility of renewable generation and load demand an energy management system (EMS) design should rely on robust control methods. The EMS should also cope with unlikely scenarios of equipment failure. In particular, this project develops control strategies for the case of communication failures. In order to demonstrate the technological maturity of the developed solution, the project is to be concluded by a practical field test on a real and operating MG.
