Denmark : Intelligent Energy Management System for a Virtual Power Plant

At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Energy Technology a PhD stipend is available within the general study programme Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The stipend is open for appointment from November 1, 2010.

Job description
The PhD position is part of the Intelligent Energy Management System for a Virtual Power Plant project, co-funded by Højteknologifonden, Vestas Wind Systems A/S and Aalborg University aiming at integrating energy storage systems into wind power plants.
Future large wind power plants (WPP) will be intended to function like conventional power plants seen from the transmission system by complying with the grid codes and providing ancillary services. Embedding energy storage to form a so-called Virtual Power Plant may offer such services.
The purpose of this project is to develop intelligent energy management system for Virtual Power Plant in order to improve production forecast, reduce fluctuations of output power over time (dp/dt), offer the balancing responsible a primary reserve, improve inertia response, enable black starting and finally demonstrate that an optimal designed energy management system with minimised energy storage integrated into a wind power plant results in a financially attractive concept.

You may obtain further information from Professor Remus Teodorescu, Department of Energy Technology , Phone: +45 9940 9249 concerning the technical aspects of the stipend.
PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Masters degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years.
