Context : The PhD position is part of the Horizon Europe project ENERGETICS and is funded for a duration of 36 months.
Scientific Objectives : The focus of the Ph.D. thesis is on the development of a multi-physical model of a lithium battery, based on measurement results that have to be generated by the Ph.D. student in our laboratory:
Review of the related state-of-the-art,
Collection of existing approaches for accelerated ageing tests,
Definition and conduction of accelerated ageing tests,
Development of multi-physical model allowing to predict the battery behavior and aging in
different conditions of battery life based on literature results and experimental results (digital twin),
Cooperation in elaboration of battery management system and test on the digital twin,
Contribution to experimental validation,
Writing of the thesis document and defense.
Expected qualifications : Master’s or 5-year engineering degree in electrical engineering, renewable energies, or a related field, Interest for energy storage topics and research,
Basic knowledge in electromobility and lithium-ion batteries,
Experience with Python and/or Matlab programming,
Good level of written and oral English,
A good level of French is a plus.
