Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) this posting seeks a researcher to apply for an appointment to participate in the research and development of power electronics applications for interfacing between solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems and utility grids at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). NETL is a multi-disciplinary, scientific and technical-oriented national laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary lab supporting fossil fuel-based energy research.
The selected individual will collaborate on an interdisciplinary team spanning industry, academic, and national laboratory partners with the primary learning objective to study and gain a deeper understanding of the interactions between SOFC and power conditioning systems and to research novel methods to optimize SOFC system operations with emerging power electronics and power conversion applications.
An ideal candidate would be capable of researching within the team to (1) analyze and investigate potential interactions between SOFC systems and power conditioning systems, (2) design and simulate power electronics systems for grid integration, and (3) design the controller for the power electronics system for mitigating the disturbances from utility grids to SOFC systems for optimal SOFC operations. The ideal candidate would also be capable of leveraging analytical control design methods and power electronics simulations tools.
Successful candidates will have:
