Enhancing Ancillary Service in Low-inertia Power Systems

Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering

About the Project

Meeting UK targets towards reduction of carbon dioxide emissions substantially promotes energy generation from renewable energy resources such as wind and photovoltaic. However, the transition from conventional fossil-fuel based power plants to renewable generation with power electronics interfaces significantly reduces overall system inertia as well as voltage and frequency stability. This raises new challenges for power system operability in terms of stability, reliability, resiliency, and power quality. To deal with these challenges and maintain grid stability and reliability, ancillary services must be evolved.

This PhD project focuses on the development of enhanced ancillary services and control systems in low-inertia power systems in order to address the stability and reliability issues.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded research project.

We require applicants to have either an undergraduate honours degree (I or II.i) or MSc (Merit or Distinction) in a mathematical or engineering subject from a reputable institution. A background in control theory, optimization, and power systems is desirable.

Applicants can apply for a Scholarship from the University of Sheffield but should note that competition for these Scholarships is highly competitive: View Website
