You will work closely with data scientists, power systems engineers and fellow developers on developing control and monitoring solutions for smart grids and renewable energy power plants.
An example project that you could be working on:
Virtual Power Plant platform – a turn-key solution that enables intelligent management of grid networks, distributed energy resources (DERs), and energy storage. The platform enables many DERs to be aggregated into a virtual power plant which can be deployed for the provision of energy services, such as frequency regulation. The total integrated system includes numerous components, such as: embedded energy management systems, device communication interfaces, advanced control, and optimization algorithms, physical / cyber security systems, data processing services, user interfaces (both embedded and cloud-based), sensors, and measurement systems.
Your tasks will include:
Working with our team and third parties to develop system designs, including the definition of functional requirements, data models, architecture and specification of communication protocols
Developing new and existing back-end applications
