In the Power SystemsGroup at the Thuringian Energy Research Institute (ThEFI) at the Ilmenau University of Technology (TU Ilmenau, Germany) is a vacancy for a
to start on July 1st 2023.
The technological basis for a new, fully converter-fed distribution network based on DC technology (VERNEDCT) for urban areas is to be developed, which can take over the tasks of today's network levels 5-7 (medium and low voltage). The conversion of distribution grids to DC technology is a comprehensive socio-technical transformation.
The key unique selling point of VERNEDCT is that it takes a holistic systems approach. One dimension is the consideration of the entire technical system hierarchy from energy management to grid system technology and system and converter control to switchgear.
A scalable target network topology for distribution networks in DC technology, an associated protection and drive concept, suitable basic converter types together with control and new switching devices such as hybrid switches are to be developed. Another focus of the project is the elaboration of a realistic transformation path how to transform today's distribution grid to a more efficient DC-based target system in the period until 2050.
The project directly addresses megatrends such as defossilization, urbanization and All Electric Society and takes into account the resulting technical and societal requirements and constraints. This project has a duration of 6 years and is worked on by a research group consisting of about 8 scientists.
