SuperGrid Institute recruits an R&D Engineer F / M
HVDC Systems Integration
The Institute for Energy Transition (ITE) Supergrid is a collaborative research platform in the field of low-carbon energy, bringing together the expertise of industry and public research in the logic of public-
private co-investment and close cooperation between all stakeholders of the sector.
The institute aims to develop technologies for the Supergrid that is the future electricity transmission network, using direct current and alternating current at very high voltages (in the order of one million volts), designed to transport large-
to manage the intermittent nature of renewable energy; and also, to ensure the stability and security of the network.
The program Architecture and Systems has developed various technical concepts regarding the building of HVDC grids, as well as various tools to assess those concepts.
It becomes necessary now to bring together concepts and tools in such a way to be able to propose and demonstrate viable MTDC system architectures principles.
Technical and Economical Assessment (TEA) of solutions is a key factor and a TEA tool development is currently in progress.
It seems now that a collaboration with external organizations is needed in order to consolidate the TEA tool functionalities.
The Engineer will be a central pillar of the program activities. He (She) will have to structure the system integration activity and to perform associated tasks.
More particularly, he (she) will have to set up and animate a collaborative project with external organizations, with the objective to consolidate the existing TEA tool functionalities.
He (she) will have to manage interactions between experts, and be able to achieve good synthesis of the different technical aspects, concepts and assessment tools.
He (She) shall be able to manage technical discussions with partners such a Transmission System Operators (TSO) in order to capture grid planning dimensions and requirements within the scope of collaborative partnerships.
He (She) will work in close relation with SuperGrid Institute Collaborative Project Development Manager and with software development team.
