OFFER DESCRIPTION

Work group:

IEK-10 - Modellierung von Energiesystemen

Area of research:

PHD Thesis

Job description:

IEK-10 focuses on the development of models and algorithms for simulation and optimization of decentralized, integrated energy systems. Such systems are characterized by high spatial and temporal variability of energy supply and demand as well as by a high degree of interdependence of material and energy flows. Research at IEK-10 aims to provide scalable and real-time capable methods and tools which enable the energy-optimal, cost-efficient and safe design and operation of future energy systems.

We are looking to recruit a

PhD position: Cloud-based energy system optimization through big data analysis of measurement data

Your Job:

Forschungszentrum Jülich aims at a full digitalization of the energy system on its campus, including energy conversion units, distribution networks, and buildings. This creates a foundation on which measurement data and dynamic system models can be utilized to optimize control of the energy system's equipment and subsystems. Your tasks include: development of methods to use big data analyses of the system's measurement data for a cloud-based optimization of system operation automated analyses of current operation in order to identify patterns, failures and trends Using the conclusions from analyses to optimize system operation demonstration and evaluation of the developed methods in the actual operation of the real system

Your Profile:

Excellent university degree in computational engineering science, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, industrial engineering, or a relevant discipline Expertise in data sciences Expertise in the field of mathematical optimization Programming experience (preferably in Python) is highly welcome High motivation for pursuing a PhD within 3 years Excellent organizational skills and the ability to show initiative and work independently Excellent cooperation and communication skills and ability to work as part of a team Excellent skills in spoken and written English
