Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
The Centre for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) at the Department of Electrical Engineering, invites applications for a 3-year PhD position in Advanced Game-Theoretical Aspects in Electricity Markets. The PhD project is to concentrate on cutting-edge aspects of future electricity markets, with particular emphasis placed on the role of bounded rationality, information availability and game-theoretical aspects. Electricity markets have been evolving rapidly over the last decade(s), with an increasing share of renewable energy generation, a rapid evolution of the generation mix besides renewables, as well as a renewed interest in demand-side management (for demand response). Even more profound changes are ahead of us, if considering the role of new actors of the electricity market, e.g., prosumers, distributed storage, aggregators, virtual bidders, etc. In parallel to that evolution, the context of digitization in the electric energy sector is to have an impact on market dynamics and market design. In that context, we should rethink the way actors of the electricity market behave, by considering their rational behavior (or not), information availability and exchange, as well as the impact on market equilibria. This comprises an ambitious research agenda which yield new insight on what future electricity markets should be. Responsibilities and tasks This PhD project will propose a number of novel concepts related to behavior of actors in electricity markets, going besides or against the commonly accepted rational behavior. The successful candidate will additionally lay the ground for information sharing and trading in electricity markets, in order to monetize energy data. Finally, you will build a market environment (e.g., agent-based, equilibrium analysis, etc.) to assess impacts on electricity markets. Qualifications Candidates should have a MSc in electrical engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the MSc in engineering. The successful candidate will have a strong background in most of the following points: •Fundamental knowledge of power system operation and renewable integration •Fundamental knowledge of power system economics, energy markets and policy •Knowledge of game-theoretic complementarity modeling and equilibrium analysis •Knowledge of risk assessment techniques and their applications to power systems •Knowledge of uncertainty modeling techniques, such as stochastic programming and robust optimization •Knowledge of optimization, decomposition, and distributed optimization techniques •Knowledge of programming tools such as GAMS, Python, Gurobi, etc •Prior work with bounded rationality is appreciated •Excellent use of the English language •Ability to present results in technical reports, and prepare scientific papers for publication in international journals Approval and Enrolment The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide. Assessment The assessment of the applicants will be made by Assistant Professor Jalal Kazempour and Professor Pierre Pinson. We offer We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international environment focusing on education, research, scientific advice and innovation, which contribute to enhancing the economy and improving social welfare. We strive for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a leading technical university in northern Europe and benchmarks with the best universities in the world. Salary and appointment terms The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD students. The period of employment is 3 years.
