Summary: Delft Center for Systems and Control Delft University of Technology
The Delft Center for Systems and Control at TU Delft - Delft University of Technology, The Nether-
lands, announces an opening for a 15-month post doctoral position on the topic
Verification and Control of Stochastic Systems
with Applications in Power Networks
General Project Description
The aim is to propose novel methods for analysis, verification and control of complex, large scale
models, under the general framework of stochastic hybrid systems (SHS). SHS allow one to describe
the interleaving between continuous and discrete dynamics and the effect of probabilistic uncertainty.
We plan to combine techniques for SHS from the computer science (giving rise to theorem proving and
model checking methods) and from systems and control engineering (giving rise to optimal control
and randomized techniques).
Fundamental research will be applied to problems in power networks, where SHS arise naturally:
continuous dynamics model the evolution of voltages, frequencies, etc., discrete dynamics changes in
network topology, and probability the uncertainty about power demand and power supply.
The position is funded in part by the European Commission under the FP7 project MoVeS,
We are looking for a candidate with a PhD degree in a topic related to the themes of the described
research, such as applied mathematics, systems and control, or related engineering disciplines. The
