Third-cycle subject: Constructional Engineering and Design.
In the transition toward low-energy buildings and the 5th generation of district heating, using data-driven approaches to integrate decentralized renewables with optimal control will play a vital role. You will join an exciting research team and interdisciplinary EU project to develop and apply machine learning (ML) techniques, novel system control and optimization methods to integrate/operate various thermal storage and building HVAC systems. You will perform dynamic simulations of energy operation (both thermal and power), as well as testing the developed ML methods/control solutions in multiple live-in-labs across Europe. You will work closely with a large number of industry partners and other researchers to manage project deliverables. Additionally, you will be also expected to perform limited percentages of department duties, i.e., teaching, supervisions of thesis students, etc.
