The increasing penetration of distributive energy generation raises several challenges for the operation of power systems, including the uncertainties caused by the renewable generation and flexible demand, energy imbalance, and violation of network constraints. Improving the system's reliability through energy storage, demand response, and increasing capacity is a promising solution to overcome these challenges. This is a good opportunity to get involved with the School of Engineering, located on the Joondalup Campus of ECU. By attracting the brightest minds and fostering a truly innovative and collaborative work environment, the School aims to develop global solutions to contemporary issues. Prospective research topic includes but are not limited to prediction of dynamic behaviour of electric grid, distributive energy system planning and operational scheduling.
