Position: PhD Position in Machine Learning and Simulation-based Analysis for Smart Grids
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: The topic of the project is “Secure, Reliable and Predictable Smart Grids” and it concerns the application of machine learning and simulation techniques to predict the impact of customers’ consumption on the Luxembourgish smart grid. The project involves (1) building decision making systems suggesting, based on consumption-related predictions, relevant actions to preserve the stability of the energy network, (2) designing methods to simulate worst-case scenarios (such as incidents) assessing the resilience of the grid to extreme conditions. The project is held in close collaboration with Creos S.A. and, as one of the successful candidates, you will be expected to program prototype tools showcasing the practical benefits of your research outcomes
Requirements: The candidate should possess an MSc degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, or in Electrical Engineering with strong programming skills and good knowledge of computer science in general. Experience: The ideal candidate should have some knowledge and/or experience in a number of the following topics: Machine learning; Simulation-based analysis; Multi-objective optimization; Smart energy grids; Data collection and storage pipeline; Strong software development skills are mandatory. Language Skills: Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are required. French is a plus
