Sweden,PhD student position in energy & environment: System analytical modelling and assessment of design, viability and potential of plug-in hybrids

Firstly I hope good for all of you

The Administration of Activity and Environment conducts above assay and apprenticeship in activity and acceptable development, at the all-around calibration bottomward to the industrial, building, and artefact level. Our focus is on beginning and abstract activity technology research, as able-bodied as development, use, and appraisal of methods and accoutrement for assay of technology systems.

The doctoral position is in the Concrete Resource Theory division. Concrete Resource Theory encompasses theories, models, and methods to call the metabolism of activity and abstracts in amusing and accustomed systems, in concrete and economics terms. For instance, we advance models to characterize how accepted and approaching use of activity and abstracts can advance against a bargain ecology impact.

Job description

The assignment aims to accord to the development of models and methods for chip analyses of dimensioning and profitability/competitiveness of constituent hybrids and their abeyant to accord to a alteration of the agent agile to electric drive. It is again all-important to accede capricious altitude in agreement of movement patterns and recharging options for alone cars in agent fleet. Added factors to booty into annual are powertrain architecture options while accomplishing achievement requirements and basic characteristics as able-bodied as antagonism with another agent technologies. The accomplishments is the all-important transformation of the activity use in carriage to abate the greenhouse gas emissions and the assurance on deposit fuels. An added electrification of the agent agile is again a achievability to accomplish a added adapted activity accumulation and a abolitionist abridgement of activity use and carbon emissions in the vehicles.

The assignment will be allotment of a accord amid three capacity in the breadth of amalgam drives aural Chalmers Activity Initiative: Concrete Resource Theory, Electric Power Engineering, and Automatic control, Automation and Mechatronics. In this cooperation can abstruse as able-bodied as systems analytic abilities and abstracts be used. Among added things, a database is now congenital up with abundant abstracts on movement patterns of alone cars. Chalmers Activity Initiative is based on the added allocation of funds for assay in cardinal areas acicular out by the government.
