Power your future.

The changing energy landscape with increasing converter-interfaced, time varying renewable energy sources (V-RES) and electrification of new sectors such as transport, heating and industries challenges transmission and distribution system operators. Achieving a very high share of centralized and distributed V-RES requires a paradigm change in the way the grids are planned, operated and serviced; bringing new performance requirements for all the relevant products and system solutions.
A research program entitled “Power Systems of the Future” investigates the mid- and long-term implications of the ongoing changes in power systems worldwide, primarily driven by the new renewables with power electronic grid interfaces, distributed resources, coupling of energy sectors and liberalization of energy markets. The team works with all business units and defines next generation concepts and solutions to be introduced to the market.
Internship duration 9-12 months, 100%.
Location: Baden, Switzerland
