Power System Analyst with focus on grid integration of renewables and thermal power plants
As a Power System Analyst in the Department Power System Design, you will contribute directly to the foundation of the Danish green transition.
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 must ensure that the power system can be operated in a stable manner, today and in the future.
You will be part of an organisation where flexibility and work life in balance are high on the agenda. You will therefore be offered equipment for a good home workplace in order to be able to vary in the best possible way with being at our head office in Fredericia and at home.
Directly linked to the green transition
As a Power System Analyst in the Department Power System Design, 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 ensuring secure and reliable grid integration of a range of plant types. You will validate plant performance, ensuring valid simulation models, and conducting grid integration studies grid. Through that process you will interact with internal and external stakeholders involved.
Your key responsibilities are:
Act as technical responsible for grid integration of cases with several technologies including synchronous generators, solar power plants, wind power plants, data centres and PtX-plants.
Undertake power system plant integration studies using various analytical tools including phasor-based and electromagnetic transient tools (eg PowerFactory and PSCAD).
Contribute to the continuous development of the Danish grid codes.
Handle specification, performance verification and implementation of a range of different types of simulation models.
Specify compliance-testing and -simulation requirements for new grid connections, with a special focus on new synchronous generators.
You can look forward to an exciting job with great responsibility, variety, and complexity. You will work closely with 17 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 Analyst
You hold a master’s degree within Power System or Power Electronic engineering, combined with minimum 2-4 years of work experience either from the classic power plant, wind or solar industry or a TSO. You are specialized in simulation-based analysis and have experience within modelling of synchronous or power electronic interfaced plants. You have well-developed competencies within the use of DIgSILENT PowerFactory and PSCAD and programming skills, e using Python.
It is important that you like to work with advanced theory and are equipped with strong 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.
