Description

  • The Power Systems Engineering Center (PSEC) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is inviting applications for a internship position to work on government and industry sponsored research in the area of Electro Magnetic Transient modeling of power systems. The researcher should have experience in the broad area of power system modeling using Electro Magnetic Transient simulation tools (EMTP-RV, PSCAD) with specific focus on high fidelity, high frequency modeling of power system components including overhead lines, underground cables, and inverter-based resources for studying their impacts on power system transients. Basic experience in power systems design, planning and modeling, along with related programming experience in python to plot data.  


Requirements

  • Minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average
  • Undergraduate: Must be enrolled as a full-time student in a bachelor’s degree program from an accredited institution. 

  • Post Undergraduate: Earned a bachelor’s degree within the past 12 months. Eligible for an internship period of up to one year.
  • 
Graduate: Must be enrolled as a full-time student in a master’s degree program from an accredited institution. 

  • Post Graduate: Earned a master’s degree within the past 12 months. Eligible for an internship period of up to one year.
  • Graduate + PhD: Completed master’s degree and enrolled as PhD student from an accredited institution.
  • Additional Required Qualifications:
  • Must be recent BS, MS graduate (Ph.D. Students are highly preferred).
  • Research experience developed through coursework, work, or independent study.
  • Software skills: Python, pandas, plotly, PSCAD, or one of the EMT tools (PSCAD, EMTP-RV, RSCAD, etc).
  • Must be willing to document the work performed both in the software files and as separate text files.
  • Preferred Qualifications:
  • Coursework in Power Electronics or Power Systems.
  • Experience with one of the Electro Magnetic Transient simulation tools (EMTP-RV, PSCAD) is highly desirable.
  • Experience with analysis of transient performance of power system with high shares of inverter-coupled resources.
