PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in rail vehicle technology, focus on condition monitoring

Condition monitoring of rail traffic systems plays an increasingly important role when it comes to streamlining maintenance and increasing reliability in traffic. Condition monitoring paves the way for a transition from time-based to condition-based maintenance which can improve the reliability and availability of the system, reduce costs and increase the system awareness of infrastructure managers and train operators. A key area is condition monitoring of the dynamic interaction between vehicle and track. Your task will be to, in close collaboration with the rail traffic system’s stakeholders, propose methods within condition monitoring to detect deficiencies in the system’s dynamics and quickly and efficiently take appropriate measures. The work includes measurements and simulations of these dynamics (vibrations, etc.) at different operating conditions. Signal processing, analysis of large data sets and machine learning are also important parts of the work, which will also be partially conducted within the EU’s major research program Europe’s Rail.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Electricity Market Optimization

European states (and Sweden) are working toward a sustainable intermittent renewable future. This green vision has brought about several important challenges. One of the major challenges is the increasing complexity in the Single Day-ahead Coupling (SDAC) model. First, the Market Time Unit (MTU) is planned to be reduced from 1 hour to 15 minutes. This roughly means an optimization model four times larger than what we have now. Second, the type and number of nonconvex orders are expected to increase by growing share of intermittent renewable generation. This in turn creates increasing complexity in calculating uniform prices. Third, Joint optimization of energy and balancing reserves in the day-ahead market which requires innovate algorithms to solve the SDAC model. In this project we propose to study these three issues and to develop policies to address these concerns, with the ultimate aim of improving the performance of the SDAC model and smoothing the transition to the 100% renewable future. More Info

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in process metallurgy

The focus of the project is to substitute fossil combustion processes with innovative electric technologies, such as electric resistance heating and microwave heating. Use cases are considered, targeting the production of refractory bricks and preheating processes in steel making. For these specific applications, appropriate demonstration plants have to be designed, built, tested close to the process and validated. This is supported by corresponding activities to provide suitable high-temperature materials and tools for instrumentation and effective process control. Challenges regarding thermal load management or intelligent energy management are simulated by means of numerical models. In the pilot-scale research, computational simulations will be performed with specialized CFD software packages to design the heating systems. Along with the modeling work, laboratory investigations will be carried out to define suitable high-temperature materials In the later stages of the study, comprehensive plant trials at industrial sites will be conducted for further verification.

(12) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in the properties and durability of shotcrete

For the Department of Concrete Construction at the Department of Building Science, we are looking for a PhD student for a project focusing on the properties of shotcrete. The properties of the material when it is used for rock reinforcement and repairs of existing concrete structures must be studied. Shotcrete gets different properties compared to the corresponding cast concrete because the material is applied and compacted using compressed air instead of being cast and vibrated. When spraying, an accelerator is also added to achieve rapid hardening and adhesion to the substrate. This combined with a higher cement content, smaller aggregate fractions than in cast concrete and the fact that fiber reinforcement is often used gives shotcrete its unique material properties. The goal of the project is to determine how the properties that shotcrete exhibits in a field environment, for example in a tunnel, relate to the properties that material samples exhibit when tested in a laboratory. Particular focus is placed on how fibers of different materials interact with the concrete, also in a long-term perspective, which is investigated through testing in the field and laboratory and verified with numerical calculations. The project should result in recommendations for how durable, efficient and safe shotcrete constructions should be designed.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Solid Mechanics

We are looking for a PhD student in the project ‘Model for predicting capacity losses in lithium-ion battery modules’. Charging and discharging of lithium-ion batteries leads to swelling and shrinking of the electrodes, causing mechanical degradation and capacity fade over time. This project aims to develop coupled thermomechanical and electrochemical models to predict capacity loss as a function of a number of charging cycles. The models will capture stresses, strains, swelling behaviour and capacity loss on scales ranging from electrode layers to complete battery modules. Both reversible and irreversible swelling will be modelled and related to the battery’s state of health. The models will be experimentally verified at laboratory and full battery system levels. Results will be used to provide guidelines for optimal battery design, mechanical encapsulation and operating conditions to maximise lifetime. The project involves close collaboration with battery manufacturers and automotive companies. The work will lead to a tool integrated into commercial software for direct application in industry. The project is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency. The project will be carried out in collaboration with the Department of Electrochemistry at KTH, where certain model experiments will be conducted. There is also a close collaboration with Scania CV AB and Northvolt AB.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Electricity Hedge Markets in Nordic Region

Around the world, electricity spot prices tend to be highly volatile, varying both across time and across locations on the network. For this reason, as with many other commodities, financial markets have emerged for mitigating the risk and providing signals to investors. The market participants who trade in electricity across different pricing areas are exposed to locational basis risk – the difference in the price between the point at which the electricity is injected into the network and the point at which it is withdrawn.  However, these inter-locational hedging instruments have not been subject to the same degree of development or attention as the inter-temporal hedging instruments. The Electricity Price Area Differentials or EPAD contract is one such inter-locational hedging instrument which allows members on the power exchange to hedge against the area-price risk. The EPAD is a spread contract between one bidding-area price and the Nordic system price. However, some concerns have been raised with available hedging instruments in the Nordic region:

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, abbreviated KTH, is a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH conducts research and education within engineering and technology, and is Sweden’s largest technical university. Currently, KTH consists of five schools with four campuses in and around Stockholm.

KTH was established in 1827 as Teknologiska Institutet (Institute of Technology), and had its roots in Mekaniska skolan (School of Mechanics) that was established in 1798 in Stockholm. But the origin of KTH dates back to the predecessor to Mekaniska skolan, the Laboratorium Mechanicum, which was established in 1697 by Swedish scientist and innovator Christopher Polhem. Laboratorium Mechanicum combined education technology, a laboratory and an exhibition space for innovations. In 1877 KTH received its current name, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology). The King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf is the High Protector of KTH.

KTH is the highest ranked technical university in Sweden. It is ranked top 100 in the world among all universities in the 2020 QS World University Rankings.
