(15) Research Associate Position

Research Associate Position summary/title: Research Associate in Distribution Network Modelling and Analysis

The Power and Energy Division of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the development and implementation of a probabilistic, artificial neural networks based methodology for modelling demand-side flexibility in distribution networks. The methodology will serve to represent demand flexibility coming from a large number of residential and small and medium-size commercial end-users. The resulting model will be applicable to the flexibility procurer, quantifying the amount of available capacity in the presence of uncertainties. Such a comprehensive flexibility model can inform demand response (DR) programmes at the distribution level, facilitating more confident planning of the DR outcome, and scheduling demand manipulation in an optimal way. This research will contribute to more flexible operation of the distributing network by assessing the time varying capacity available from flexible loads, in response to flexible services currently procured by the DNOs.
