Brief Description
• To provide high quality research support and undertake internationally competitive research aimed at publication thereby contributing to the academic and research mission of the University
Detailed Description
The project, titled MUSES: Multi Use Space Energy Systems , aims to develop and deliver superior power electronics, electric machines, and associated control strategies to enable weight, cost, and size reduction while expanding the capabilities of aerospace platforms. Advances in aerospace systems are increasingly tied to advances in energy processing. Visions and current research efforts for aerospace systems clearly point towards new demands for electric energy processing for propulsion, sensor systems, and for enabling efficient, cost-effective programs for maintenance. For example, drones and light aircraft ranging from personal aircraft to small regional carriers are moving towards electric or hybrid propulsion. More generally, aircraft, satellites, and other space systems all offer ultimate examples of a power "microgrid," an isolated power delivery system vital to the core functions of aerospace assets. The importance of electric power and energy processing on aerospace platforms will grow and change in comparison to traditional satellites, launchers, and aircraft. This project will introduce advanced power electronics topologies, novel energy management systems, demand side management schemes, fault detection, isolation and recovery, and new electromagnetic actuators to ensure efficient, reliable and stable operation of the spacecraft and aeronautical power systems.
An established track record evident by publication in top quality journals. The ideal candidate should also have expertise in some of the following areas of Control, Power System, and Power Electronics pertaining to spacecraft and aeronautical electrical power sub-system (EPS):
• Design and control of Power Electronic based DC power system configurations for EPS
• Stability analysis, closed loop control and power management of EPS
• Fault detection, isolation, and recovery for EPS
• Real-time simulation using OPAL-RT or RTDS lab
• Development of scaled experimental prototypes of EPS
• Proven programming skills for analytical and modeling purposes, e.g. Matlab and PSCAD
• Fluency in communicating, reading and writing in English
Job Requirements
Research Engineer - Master s degree in Electrical Engineering or relevant area and a good track record evident by publication in top quality journals. Candidate should have minimum one IEEE Transactions papers accepted or published.
