Design of advanced input-output and data analytics graphical user interface for a low-carbon power system operation and planning tool

A tool is being developed by a multi-disciplinary team at the University of Melbourne to perform optimal planning and simulate the operation and performance of future low-carbon power systems with large shares of renewables and distributed energy resources. The model is currently being used to study planning options for the National Electricity Market in Australia and for the UK transmission system. Through advanced data analytics, the tool will include a graphical user interface (GUI) to facilitate clarity in the large amount of required input data and in the interpretation and analysis of the results.

This internship will support the development of the GUI and will provide the student with a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of state-of-the-art power system operation, planning and relevant tools, while also improving their skills in coding, database management, and data analytics.

The candidate should have excellent knowledge of programming, some background in data analytics, and ideally experience in one or more of the following programming languages: Python, Julia, and MATLAB.
