The Grid Components abd Controls Group (GCC) within the Electrification and Energy Infrastructures Division (EEID) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking to fill a Senior R&D Staff position to perform R&D in the areas of electronic power grid dynamic and transient modeling, harmonic stability analysis, and decentralized or distributed controls technologies. Research activities will include novel or improved approaches for modeling the power grid, the investigation of new operating modes and the assessment of market impacts of new technologies. Selection will be based on qualifications, relevant experience, skills, and education
The GCC Group supports multi-laboratory research, including research supporting DOE’s Office of Electricity (OE), Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response (CESER) and Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) on the electricity grid’s resilience and reliability, grid modeling and analysis, integration of new technologies, and identifying and validating new ways of using existing and emerging grid assets to ensure grid reliability, grid resilience, environmental stewardship, and affordability of energy supplies. GCC conducts modeling, analysis, control R&D specifically related to power electronics-based grid devices, development and design of new grid devices deploying new theory and methodologies, and system operation and control R&D of integrated systems such as microgrids and networked microgrids utilizing intelleligent and smart grid devices.
Main Duties / Responsibilities
You will be responsible for leading research services and managing research projects supporting GCC’s electronic power grid modeling and stability analysis research activities. You should be a thought leader in developing new modeling, analysis and control methods for determining and evaluating the potential value of smart grid components or devices and their control functionalities on power system reliability, stability and resilience during normal and abnormal conditions under small and large disturbances, and be able to communicate and influence stakeholders – internal and external, government and private sector – on new concepts, R&D opportunities, and results. You have the opportunity to work collaboratively to support other ORNL staff and to offer career guidance and mentoring to junior staff.
