About the Project
The candidate will be integrated as a PhD student in The Aberdeen HVDC research Centre https://www.abdn.ac.uk/engineering/research/aberdeen-hvdc-research-centre-472.php which has 8-10 researchers, with an external income of around £3.7 million since 2010 (£1.5 million in live grants), mostly from EU and UK research councils.
Using direct DC/DC power conversion between wind generators and HVDC transmission results in volume and weight savings offshore, potentially eliminating offshore platforms.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering and have a good background knowledge in power electronics, power systems and control engineering. They should also be motivated to perform theoretical research and simulation studies.
