PhD Scholarship in Power Electronics at Technical University of Denmark

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in material sciences at Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. Applicants should apply before July 15, 2019.

The Electronics group (ELE) at DTU Elektro seeks a qualified candidate for a vacant 3-year PhD position in the area of power electronics.

DTU ELE group is responsible for power electronics research including advanced high efficiency dc-dc and dc-ac converters for renewable energy and storage applications. The goal of this PhD project is to research 1-10kW highly efficient and bidirectional ac-dc converter based on partial power regulation concept.

Efficient and effective energy systems integration with renewable and clean energies has been very critical for the future fossil-free society. Power-to-X (P2X) is a promising option for storing intermittent renewables and providing clean energy to residential, industrial, transportation users. In such systems, high efficiency and low cost, which are always the two conflict parameters for a power electronics system, must be satisfied at the same time for P2X applications. Therefore, a multidisciplinary study needs to be carried out by researchers from the scientific fields e.g. electrical engineering, electrochemical, material science and thermal engineering, and the challenges have not yet been solved completely due to the system complexity. This PhD project will focus on the partial power regulation based new power electronic topology and configuration, in particular, ac-dc rectifiers for both cost reduction and efficiency improvement. Appling modular design concept, a 10-kW ac-dc high-frequency-link converter will be developed and optimized as a hardware platform, on which advanced control strategies will be researched to achieve fraction power processing and reactive power compensation. This PhD project is granted by Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) and will carry out with close collaboration of Danish and international industrial partners.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
