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.
The proposed EU North Sea DC transmission grid is a key facilitating technology for integrating large offshore wind energy. The interoperability of converters and other components is recognised as one of the most important barriers, since current state of the art point-to-point HVDC systems are normally supplied by a single vendor. The project will evaluate various options to resolve interoperability, including dynamic, frequency domain performance specification, in line with recommendations from the recent EU project BestPaths.
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.
