Experienced Power System Stability Analyst with focus on Energy Island Design
The Danish power system is undergoing significant technical changes. The green power system of the future will be significantly more complex and behave in a very different way compared to today. Energy production is taken over by technologies such as wind and solar, and in addition to this, an ever-increasing number of HVDC-based inter-connectors are established. Most recently, as part of the green transition, it has been decided that Denmark will realise two energy islands. Energinet is the Danish system operator in facilitating the green transition and we must ensure that the power system can be operated in a stable manner, today and in the future.
Directly linked to the green transition
As Power System Stability Analyst in the Department Grid Analysis, you will contribute directly to the foundation of the Danish green transition. You will play an important role in the organisation, where you will be responsible for management of system stability. You will ensure that your analyses are placed in the right context and communicated so they can be used directly as design specifications for power system planning, project design and system operation.
Your key responsibilities are:
- Undertake power system stability assessment using various analytical tools including phasor-based and electromagnetic transient tools
- Conduct grid integration studies and participate in grid connection groups with customers for HVDC, solar, wind, data centres and PtX-plant projects
- Specifying, performance verification and implementation of a range of different types of simulation models
- Contribute to the electrical system design of Denmark’s future energy islands
- Participation in HVDC projects including the specification of functional requirements for control and protection
- Contribute to the continuous development of our stability assessment tools and methodologies ranging from off-line desktop approaches to future real-time methods for Energinet’s control centre
- Provide coaching and training to others.
You can look forward to an exciting job with great responsibility, variety, and complexity. You will work closely with 15 highly specialized colleagues, and you will be at the centre of the decision-making to ensure the stability of the future green power system.
Power system stability analyst
You hold a master’s degree within Power System or Power Electronic engineering, combined with 4-5 years of work experience either from the wind or solar industry or a TSO. You are specialized in simulation-based analysis and have experience within modelling of power electronic interfaced plants. You have well-developed competencies within the use of DIgSILENT PowerFactory and PSCAD and programming skills, e.g., using Python.
It is important that you like to work with advanced theory and are equipped with solid analytical skills and a well-developed critical sense. You work systematically, take responsibility, have personal impact, and can work independently. You are good at collaborating with different professional groups and at communicating complex issues in a clear and easy-to-understand language. You speak and write English fluently and preferably also Danish.
