The Department of Wind Energy in the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Wind Energy) is seeking a PhD for the Wind Energy Systems Section (WES). You will be part of the international team carrying out research in Wind Energy Systems, where the working language is English. Our research is function oriented in the sense that we direct the research towards issues that are relevant for industrial development and applications, and we work in projects with system integration, control concepts for wind turbines, wind power plants, electrical components, grid connection and large-scale wind energy penetration.
The project is multi-disciplinary, with elements of wind turbine technology and control, and fluid mechanics. The candidate should have a finished master’s degree in wind power, informatics, physics, mathematics, engineering, meteorology or control. Fluent English in speaking, listening and writing is mandatory. Danish knowledge is an advantage, as is previous experience with analysis of spatio-temporal data, and with offshore wind power or wake models. We expect you to be able to work in a project team and take responsibility for your own research goals.
