Postdoc in Wind Turbine and Wind Farm Control at Technical University of Denmark

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoc position in control theory at Technical University of Denmark. The deadline to apply is July 24, 2019.

The Department of Wind Energy has a vacancy for a 2 year post-doctoral position in the Loads and Control Section (LAC) at DTU Ris Campus.DTU Wind Energy is a mission driven university department with a vision to be the preferred university partner for the global wind energy sector. The department creates value for society through integration of research with education, innovation and research-based consultancy within key fields central to the development and use of wind energy.

DTU Wind Energy develops state-of-the-art design methods to ensure the best performance, lowest cost and overall structural integrity of wind turbines as well as advance the design, operation and control of entire wind power plants for the future needs of the evolving energy system. This is a highly multi-disciplinary issue involving modelling of the non-stationary inflow field, aerodynamics, structural dynamics, structural stability and control. LAC focuses on modelling and analysis of loads and dynamics, aeroelastic stability, and control of wind turbines, and implements its research in software tools and in courses to the benefit of the wind energy community in general. This post-doctoral position focuses on developing and applying theoretical expertise in wind turbine and plant controls in particular as a crucial element of the overall section and department activities in research, education and innovation. Your work will mainly be focused within control engineering activities in research and commercial projects in Loads and Control Section at DTU Wind Energy. Specific tasks will include: In addition, you are also expected to support the activities on the development and maintenance of our in-house turbine and wind farm controller.

You will participate in a number of national and international research projects within the field of loads and control and contribute to the management and generation of new projects. There are also good opportunities for developing innovative ideas in the direction of commercializing research. The research aims at creating new valuable knowledge within the wind energy and control area and implementation at this in department activities as well as in the industry in both the short and long term. Much of our activities are performed in collaboration with the industry, as well as other Danish and foreign research institutions. In addition, the researcher is also expected to contribute to the following tasks: The section for Loads and Control at DTU Wind Energy is looking for a post-doctoral control engineer with a strong academic background in control theory and its application in wind energy. The candidate must hold a PhD degree in control engineering or relevant engineering disciplines. Industry work experience in control and wind energy is preferable. Experience with advanced model-based control methods, such as model predictive control, within the areas of the wind energy system is also beneficial.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply. DTU Wind Energy is a department at the Technical University of Denmark with the overall mission to develop and create value using the natural and technical sciences and focusing on wind energy for the benefit of society. This includes research and education in siting and integration, wind turbine technology, and offshore wind energy as well as scientific advice and testing and other research-based services. The department is an internationally leading centre in wind energy and cooperates with industry and institutions worldwide. DTU is a technical university providing internationally leading research, education, innovation andscientific advice. Our staff of 6,000 advance science and technology to create innovative solutions that meet the demands of society, and our 11,200 students are being educated to address the technological challenges of the future. DTU is an independent university collaborating globally with business, industry, government and public agencies.
