IRI’s Automatic Control group offers a postdoc position to study and develop new advanced controllers for energy applications. The main control objectives are proper performance, maximum energy efficiency, and minimum degradation of elements. Some of the issues to be solved are the high order of the dynamic models, the need to know relevant internal variables that cannot be measured or the ageing effect. Also, it will be important to study how to take advantage of any available information about future disturbances or restrictions in order to improve system benefits.
The candidate will be supervised by Prof. Maria Serra, and she/he will work in cooperation with the members of the Automatic Control group at IRI. The candidate is expected to publish the results of his/her research in top-tier conferences and journals of Automatic Control.
