KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Electrical and Systems engineering

The development of the energy system to utilize large amounts of renewable energy sources means that the physical properties of the electric power system is fundamentally changing. This in turn leads completely new requirements on the control systems used to ensure stable and safe operation. The project aims to explore and develop new methods and systems based on artificial intelligence that can handle the new operating conditions that the staff in operations centers for electric power systems will face. The intention is that the methods and systems combine physical and data-driven models. The project will be conducted in collaboration with the power industry that provide data for the development of methods and systems.

Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by:Lars Nordström
