PhD position summary/title: PhD in Characterization of Electric Insulation Systems under Power Electronic Converter Stresses

During the last decades power electronic converters (PECs) have been introduced to control and transform electric power – and permeate society for numerous applications: zero-emission transport, renewable energy, and transmission. The PEC is a key technology to succeed with the electrification of society and reach the climate goals set out by the EU and UN. PECs function as on/off switches, resulting in sharp-edged square wave voltages with a high repetition rate. These sharp voltage flanks introduce different stress distributions internally in components and are challenging to model and predict. An important part of insulation systems in high voltage components are materials with non-linear electric properties used to reduce stresses in regions with high electric fields, such as cable terminations and end windings of rotating machines. These materials are mainly designed for operation at 50 Hz AC and impose a risk of premature failure when operated with PECs.

The work of this project will be associated with the project SwoP (Impact of switched voltage waveforms on power components and grids), which is a collaborative project involving NTNU, SINTEF, and several national and international industry partners. The prospective candidate will be part of a project team that works in close collaboration with SINTEF and industry partners. The PhD Candidate will be employed at NTNU, and the workplace will be in Trondheim, in connection with this research project.

PhD position summary/title: PhD in Characterization of Fast Elongating Short Commutating Arcs in MVDC Circuit Breakers

The use of fossil fuels and the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere must be minimized as fast as possible to reach a climate-neutral society by 2050. A vital prerequisite of the de-carbonization is the rapid growth of renewables. In 2050 more than 60 % of electrical power is expected to come from wind and solar, both significantly more remote located than traditional thermal power generation. To achieve this, efficient grid-integration of renewables across Europe and globally requires the development of high-power transmission systems and components, and more specifically Medium Voltage DC (MVDC) and High Voltage DC (HVDC) switchgear. In existing grids MVAC and HVAC switchgear are filled with the insulation gas SF6, the world’s most potent GHG with a global warming potential (GWP) of 24 300. SF6 emissions due to leakages during gas handling or defective sealings/compartments represent a significant part of the grid owners’ total GHG emissions. The MISSION (Emission-free HV and MV Transmission Switchgear for AC and DC) project will contribute to enabling emission-free energy transmission and switchgear technology transition for a resilient and sustainable future electric grid. MISSION project will develop and demonstrate SF6-free products as key levers for climate-neutral power transmission filling critical gaps in future hybrid AC/DC grids

PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate 2 in the MISSION-CCS project, an MSCA-Doctoral Network for Carbon Capture and Storage

We are looking for a PhD candidate for the MISSION-CCS (Material Science Innovation for Accelerated, Sustainable and Safe Implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage) project that will provide a bespoke training environment for 13 Doctoral Candidate Researchers (DCRs), focussed on understanding and mitigating material degradation phenomena across the entire CCS chain. MISSION-CCS is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN) program.

This Ph.D. project (DCR9) will use time-resolved X-ray computed tomography (CT) and complementary techniques, including electrochemistry and machine learning, to monitor the interfacial chemical reactions induced by brine/CO2 under realistic reservoir conditions

Cement and steel are important also for CCS, notably in the transport system bringing the CO2 into the reservoirs and closing off the wellbore. It is crucial that the cement-rock and cement-steel interfaces near the steel pipe remain stable against corrosion when exposed to the CO2 stream. This Ph.D. project (DCR9) will use time-resolved X-ray computed tomography (CT) and complementary techniques, including electrochemistry and machine learning, to monitor the interfacial chemical reactions induced by brine/CO2 under realistic reservoir conditions. Imaging contrast will be achieved using phase contrast, diffraction, and isotopic contrast (for neutrons). An aim is to model the multiscale CO2 induced degradation of cement and steel as a function of exposure time, which we aim to do using big data techniques and physics based machine learning. The project will involve significant experimental efforts using both home laboratory and large-scale facilities (neutron and/or synchrotron sources), and data analysis including computer modelling of coupled thermodynamical and physicochemical processes.

MISSION-CCS is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN) program.

This Ph.D. project (DCR8) will investigate the structural degradation and the corresponding mechanical response of the sealing caprocks of CCS reservoirs in response to CO2 exposure under realistic subsea conditions of high pressure and elevated temperature. Using state-of-the-art microscopy and X-ray computed tomography (CT) methods, the long-term structural and mechanical effects of CO2 in its liquid or supercritical phase on rocks will be investigated. Such studies require resolution in space and time (“4D CT”), which is experimentally challenging. Sufficient contrast will be achieved using different imaging methods, including phase contrast, diffraction, and isotope variation (for neutrons). An aim is to derive an upscaled model of the multiscale CO2 permeability of the caprocks under long-term exposure, which we aim to do using big data techniques and physics-based machine learning in collaboration with the MISSION-CCS project partners. The project will involve significant experimental efforts using both home laboratory and large-scale facilities (neutron and/or synchrotron sources), and data analysis including multi-physics computer modelling of coupled thermodynamical and physicochemical processes.

This PhD position is funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network „PROSAFE“, which aims to train a cohort of 12 doctoral students based at universities and companies throughout Europe in the domain of application of machine learning/AI and process systems engineering to advance foundations of process safety. The candidate will be part of a multinational team and will be given opportunities to participate in professional and personal development training and undertake research within multidisciplinary fields of AI/ML and PSE for safe and efficient process operations.

The objective of this PhD project is to develop a framework for learning-based integrated optimization of long-term operation and maintenance decisions for complex chemical processes where process faults can have very large consequences. Possible examples to consider include green hydrogen production or liquid natural gas handling. In this project, knowledge-based models, such as mass and energy balances, and data-driven online learning of uncertain and unmodeled degradation phenomena by using tools such as Neural networks, will be combined to always ensure safe and economical operation. To make integrated plant operation and maintenance decisions in an optimal way, we will use state estimation techniques to find parameter values of the first principle models, and advanced data-science techniques to determine the current equipment state and build a long-term prognostic model for planning operation and maintenance. A key aspect of this work will be to take into account uncertainty in the model and operating conditions, and to include this systematically in the decision framework.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Hybrid, regressible, and robust machine learning solutions for abnormal event id

The primary goal entails formulating a hybrid, regressible, and robust Machine Learning (ML) methodology designed to recognize irregular events by assimilating phenomenological understanding of the process, historical hazard and operability data. The ML models will be crafted following an uncertainty-aware approach to enhance their reliability. This will involve identifying epistemic and aleatory uncertainties during the modeling phase and subsequently incorporating these uncertainties into the model predictions.

The main purpose of these models is to identify deviations accurately and reliably from standard operations, thereby aiding decision-making processes. As a result, the output will not merely be a single model but a comprehensive probability distribution of potential models.  This model distribution will subsequently undergo a regression process to condense the ML model order into an understandable domain, resulting in a probability distribution of interpretable models.

The non-extensive statistical mechanics framework will be systematically examined to delineate the structure of failure models, utilizing generalized probability distributions. Furthermore, the assessment of fault propagation involves the representation of intricate systems employing a Systems of Systems (SoS) architecture, thereby enhancing the interpretability of the interdependencies among the reliability of subsystems. These models will also accommodate online learning based on continually generated data. This online learning will enhance the model’s reliability by monitoring the models’ predictions vis-à-vis measured data and updating the models when required

PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate in micromechanically based modelling of plastic flow and fracture in aluminium alloys

Aluminium alloys are polycrystalline solids with a complex microstructure that consists of numerous grains and particles of many sizes and shapes. To be useful for structural applications, the alloys are subjected to various heat treatments and forming processes that change the microstructure and mechanical properties, such as strength and ductility. While the strength is controlled by nano-sized particles and solute atoms in the microstructure, the ductility of an alloy depends on many factors. Ductile fracture is often linked to the nucleation, growth, and coalescence of voids from the microscopic particles. These particles are still much smaller than the grains that gives rise to plastic anisotropy. Micromechanically based modelling therefore requires a combination of models that resolve the underlying mechanisms at the relevant scales.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Thermodynamics of ammonia-water mixtures

The period of employment of this position is 3 years, with possible extension due to teaching. The position will be in the Thermodynamics group at the Department of Chemistry at NTNU.

Ammonia (NH3) is deemed by many to be a promising energy carrier to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from transport and a viable solution for global H2 transport. A challenge is the consequences of possible spills of liquid ammonia into water when it is transported on ships.

Ammonia is often transported at a temperature well below the freezing point of water. A spill of ammonia in water will therefore rapidly evaporate. It will also react with water through a highly exothermic reaction. The interfacial dynamics and the thermo-physical properties will play a key role in how fast the ammonia spreads in both water and air, and where it ends up.
