Position: Postdoc in Optimal Dispatch of Integrated Electricity and Heat System
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: The main task is to develop a generic energy flow model for the integrated electricity and heat system (IEHS), propose optimal dispatch schemes for the IEHS considering the interaction of the electricity and heat sectors, uncertainty of renewable generation and prices, etc. in order to ensure cost effective and secure operation. Participation to the management and reporting activities for the project is expected
Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD degree in electrical engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the PhD degree in engineering. The candidate with the following knowledge will be preferred: Fundamental knowledge about the power system operation, control and analysis; Good knowledge of optimization theory, familiar with one of the optimization software, such as GAMS and Matlab; Knowledge/experience about integrated energy systems modeling and operation, i.e., the electricity, heat and gas systems; Knowledge of decision-making under uncertainty

Apply online The Centre for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites applications for a 2-year Postdoc position in “Optimal dispatch of integrated electricity and heat system”. CEE has received increased recognition internationally for its contribution to develop renewable based energy systems. A key area of focus is on integration of high shares of variable and partly predictable renewable power production through integration of energy sectors for efficient and reliable power system operation, while ensuring an increased social welfare. The Postdoc will join the Electric Power System group at the CEE. The Postdoc is supported by the Danish Heat4RES project. The aim of the Heat4RES project is to increase renewable power generation penetration level of the energy system in a cost efficient and secure manner by improving the flexibility of the heat network and interconnecting the electricity and heat sectors. The flexibility of the heat network will be primarily improved by deploying heat pumps (HPs) at both the heat source and demand sides together with the existing resources such as electric boiler, thermal storage, etc.. Responsibilities and tasks The main task is to develop a generic energy flow model for the integrated electricity and heat system (IEHS), propose optimal dispatch schemes for the IEHS considering the interaction of the electricity and heat sectors, uncertainty of renewable generation and prices, etc. in order to ensure cost effective and secure operation. Participation to the management and reporting activities for the project is expected. The following tasks will be conducted: Develop models of coupling components of the IEHS Analyze uncertainty of renewable production Analyze operation and flexibility of the 4 generation district heating systems Propose optimal dispatch schemes for the IEHS considering the uncertainty and coupling Propose frequency support scheme by using the flexibility of the districting heating system Propose business models for the CHP units and WPP in the IEHS Qualifications Candidates should have a PhD degree in electrical engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the PhD degree in engineering. The candidate with the following knowledge will be preferred: Fundamental knowledge about the power system operation, control and analysis Good knowledge of optimization theory, familiar with one of the optimization software, such as GAMS and Matlab Knowledge/experience about integrated energy systems modeling and operation, i.e., the electricity, heat and gas systems Knowledge of decision-making under uncertainty We offer DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice.
