Understanding and quantifying anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and their exchange with the biosphere is of great interest in the context of international climate treaties such as the Paris Agreement. Switzerland is one of only three countries worldwide that includes estimates of GHG emissions derived "top-down" from atmospheric measurements in its National Inventory Report complementing the officially reported numbers derived "bottom-up" from statistical data and emission factors. The quality of the top-down estimates critically depends on the atmospheric transport model that is needed to connect atmospheric observations with upstream sources. In a Swiss nationally funded project and in collaboration with the Goethe University of Frankfurt (GUF) and MeteoSwiss, Empa will further advance its modelling system taking advantage of the next-generation numerical weather prediction model ICON developed jointly by the German weather service and the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg.Your tasks Contribute to the development of a new version of the Lagrangian atmospheric dispersion model FLEXPART coupled to ICON.Improve the representation of turbulent mixing in FLEXPART and enhance the consistency with turbulence as represented in ICON (in collaboration with GUF).Participate in an international model intercomparison exercise organized under the Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information Sytem (IG3IS) of the World Meteorological Organization.Participate in project meetings, manage Empa's tasks and deliverables in the project.

Ph.D. position on: Short- and long-term creep and stress relaxation behavior of shape memory alloy reinforcements

  • Vollzeitstelle

The project is in collaboration with EPFL, Böhler Edelstahl, and re-fer. In our Structural Engineering Research Laboratory and the Laboratory for Advanced Materials Processing, new materials and systems for civil infrastructure use are developed (e.g. iron-based shape memory alloys (Fe-SMAs)). Empa is a pioneer and a worldwide-recognized institute for research on Fe-SMA reinforcement. More than 40 scientists have worked at Empa in this field over the last 20 years. As a result, more than 100 papers have been published and highly cited by society. So far, 60 real applications have been realized by the start-up company re-fer AG. Project description and tasks In this Ph.D. project, basic studies will be performed to understand the fundamental mechanisms of low-temperature creep (i.e., the time-dependent plastic elongation) and stress relaxation of Fe-SMA products. Afterward, the relaxation of SMA reinforcements with high recovery stress (Ultra-high SMAs) will be investigated. The mechanical behavior will be correlated with the materials' microstructures. Based on a deep understanding of SMA reinforcements' creep and relaxation behavior and material modeling and simulation, the development of optimal heat treatments and/or alloy composition will be the final goal of this Ph.D. project.The prospective student will be enrolled at the doctoral school of EPF Lausanne. EPFL is one of the world’s most dynamic and reputed institutes of science and technology. It offers a combination of excellence, inspiring education, and outstanding facilities for research.

PhD Position in Probabilistic prosumer side flexibilities

  • Vollzeitstelle

Project description and tasksYou will be expected to develop a novel research direction in collaboration and consultation with your supervisors for the following project: The electric energy demand of buildings is increasing due to the electrification of the transportation and heating systems which will lead to increasing numbers of electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps. While this puts an additional strain on the power grid, EVs and heat pumps are flexible loads that can be leveraged to keep the balance between generation and load. At the same time the deployment of smart meters and building automation systems (BAS) as well as an increasing share of renewable energy sources such as rooftop or façade PV progresses.In this project we intend to derive formulations that take into account the causality of available flexible producers and consumers as well as include the fact that such availability will always be subject to quite a lot of uncertainty. Hence, this project aims at supporting the vision of providing a probabilistic representation of available flexibility at the building level over a given time horizon, which is incrementally updated every time step as new data realizes. Available data of BAS shall be leveraged and it shall be investigated how to optimally provide the flexibility if re-quested, i.e. closing the loop from identification of available flexibility to actually providing it. The project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and is part of the NCCR Automation, which means a close interaction with 16 control groups and 42 PhDs and postdocs across Switzerland on this project.
