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 Senior Power System Stability Analyst in the Department Grid Analysis, you will contribute directly to the foundation of the green transition – ensuring a stable Danish power system. You play an important role in the organisation, where you are responsible for several of Energinet’s electrotechnical stability and power quality analyses. Examples are: studies ensuring a stable power system during major events and disturbances, analyses of the system effects of integrating inverter-based plants, planning, and design of the energy islands of the future or helping to clarify the cause of incidents in the power system – in close inter-disciplinary cooperation with colleagues from other departments.
Grid Analysis is responsible for all power system models, including RMS and EMT models for synchronous generators, wind- and solar power plants and HVDC-systems. You will be responsible for specifying, testing, approving, and implementing simulation models of new plants and engaging in dialogue with our stakeholders as a simulation model expert. Furthermore, you will contribute to developing the strategic direction of the department and business unit with our senior as well as management layer.
Your key responsibilities are:
- Power system stability assessment using various analytical tools including phasor-based and electromagnetic transient tools
- Grid integration studies and 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 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 methods to future online methods in our control centre
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.
Senior Power System Stability Analyst
You hold a master’s degree within Power System or Power Electronic engineering, combined with minimum 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 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.

Energinet Elsystemansvar A/S har ansvar for, at der til enhver tid er balance mellem produktion og forbrug i det danske elsystem. Vi er til stede i verden, særligt i Norden og i Europa, hvor vi deler viden og er med til at udvikle fælles netregler, driftssamarbejder og elmarkeder. Og endelig har vi fingeren på pulsen med rettidige og langsigtede analyser af og planer for et fremtidigt, sammenhængende energisystem. Vi er et datterselskab i Energinet-koncernen, som varetager samfundets interesser, når Danmark skal forsynes med el og gas, og energisystemet omstilles til grøn energi. Vores kultur hænger tæt sammen med vores samfundsansvar, og vi arbejder aktivt med FN’s verdensmål omkring bæredygtig energi, klimaindsats, partnerskaber for handling samt industri, innovation og infrastruktur. Ved at vise vejen for grøn omstilling kan vi være med til at løse den globale klimaudfordring. Nye løsninger kræver, at vi evner at se problemstillinger fra mange vinkler, og derfor er mangfoldighed et nøgleord i vores kultur. Vi bestræber os på at lytte, involvere og dele vores viden. Med afsæt i værdierne mod og tillid lægger vi vægt på hele tiden at udvikle os som organisation og som mennesker.
