PhD Intern - Distribution System Modeling
Full/Part Time: Part-Time
This position will support a regional study of transactive energy systems. Duties will include the design, implementation, testing and refinement of a software agent that participates in transactive energy simulation. One example of such an agent controls a smart thermostat, bidding into an energy market based on weather and consumer data, and controlling load based on the cleared price. Other agents will be developed to control other aspects of the electric power distribution system, loads, storage and/or generators. The intern will also participate in building and validating regional-scale models of the transmission and distribution system. This position will be part of a small study team and will work closely with senior staff.
