Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Faculty of Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering

Electrification and digitalisation are among the largest areas for the future in the conversion to sustainable societies. The Department of Electrical Engineering conducts successful research and education in the areas - renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, industrial IoT, 6G communication and wireless sensor networks as well as research and education within Life Science, smart electronic sensors and medical systems. The Department of Electrical Engineering is an international workplace with around 150 employees that all contribute to important technical energy and health challenges at the Ångström Laboratory.

The position will be at the division Science of Electricity, at the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Project description
This project will focus on grid integration aspects and energy management of multi-source parks: different combinations of wind, wave, and solar power parks. Various electrical layouts will be proposed and analyzed with the aim of providing high-quality power by smoothing active power variations, as well as the necessary ancillary services to support the mainland grid operation. Within the project, a set of control tools should be developed to enable the increased performance of mixed operation of a varied set of offshore generation technologies. Using hardware- and software-in-the-loop simulations, the impact of the control tools shall be analyzed, and necessary mitigation measures evaluated. The goal of the project is to provide an enhanced contribution to mainland power systems operation and seamless integration of offshore variable resources.


  • The research work includes software and power-hardware-in-the-loop modeling and simulations within the project.
  • Writing reports within the project.
  • Writing and submitting scientific articles within the project.
  • The work duties can also include teaching. No more than 20%.


  • PhD degree in electrical engineering. or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in electrical engineering. The degree needs to be obtained by the time of the decision of employment. Those who have obtained a PhD degree three years prior to the application deadline are primarily considered for the employment. The starting point of the three-year frame period is the application deadline. Due to special circumstances, the degree may have been obtained earlier. The three-year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
  •  Very good skills in writing scientific publications.
  • Very good oral and written proficiency in English. And good proficiency in Swedish.
  • We will put emphasise in your personal qualities [LE1] such as good collaboration and communication skills with other researchers. You should be purposeful, independent, structured and be able to work effectively both individually and in groups.

Additional qualifications
Previous experience with offshore energy systems is a merit. Previous experience of power system simulations using special software and hardware is a merit.
