EPSRC PhD Studentship - Energy Research Accelerator (Warwick Manufacturing Group)

Title: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) PhD Project - Low-lows power conversion for battery systemsValue: This 3.5 year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home student rate) and an annual stipend of £14,296 (current 2016-2017 rate).Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible by completing the online enquiry form and uploading your CV.Project: The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a cross-disciplinary energy innovation hub which brings together capital assets, data and intellectual leadership to foster collaboration between academia and business to accelerate the development of solutions to the global energy challenge.Overview: This project focuses on low-loss power electronic conversion. Two routes will be explored, one using recently available wide band gap (WBG) semiconductor devices (MOSFETs and BJTs in silicon carbide and FETs in gallium nitride) and the other using advanced bipolar devices in silicon. WBG devices offer higher switching frequencies than conventional devices, enabling more compact converters to be realized but the lowest on state voltage drops are achievable with silicon bipolar devices. Converter topologies using both classes of devices will be investigated, initially by modelling followed by the testing of at scale prototypes. The project will be carried out in collaboration with ST Microelectronics, WeEn Semiconductor and end users such as Zapinamo and JLR.Further information about the project can be found on the link provided.

Title: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) PhD Project - High Power Energy Storage: New Materials for Large Format SupercapacitorsValue: This 3.5 year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home student rate) and an annual stipend of £14,296 (current 2016-2017 rate).Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible by completing the online enquiry form and uploading your CV.Project: The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a cross-disciplinary energy innovation hub which brings together capital assets, data and intellectual leadership to foster collaboration between academia and business to accelerate the development of solutions to the global energy challenge.Overview: The focus of this project is to take new supercapacitor technology from the scientific discovery stage right through to industrially relevant demonstrator devices. The project will aim to increase the energy stored in new supercapacitor devices through the use of nanostructured metal oxides as electrode materials. You will develop new nanostructured transition metal materials using a range of wet chemistry and advanced synthesis techniques (including hydrothermal, solid state and co-precipitation methods) to direct the phase, particle size and morphology of various transition metal oxides. You will assess these properties through various characterisation methods including powder x-ray diffraction, surface area and pore analysis and various electron microscopies. These materials are to be screened throughout the project to understand the effects on various properties in supercapacitor application. This screening will involve making of small coin cell devices and extensive electrochemical analysis including potentiostatic and galvanostatic techniques and AC impedance spectroscopy.Further information about the project can be found on the link provided.

Title: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) PhD Project - Investigation of ripple current effects in batteriesValue: This 3.5 year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home student rate) and an annual stipend of £14,296 (current 2016-2017 rate).Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible by completing the online enquiry form and uploading your CV.Project: The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a cross-disciplinary energy innovation hub which brings together capital assets, data and intellectual leadership to foster collaboration between academia and business to accelerate the development of solutions to the global energy challenge.Overview: There is a need for systematic study in this area, especially as new battery chemistries emerge. Battery pack designers need to understand the effect of ripple currents on battery life and performance to be able to set limits to avoid undue degradation. Knowledge of those limits will enable the designers of power electronics to ensure that the limits are adhered to yet avoiding unnecessary expensive and bulky filtering circuits. The project will involve both practical work (testing cell response to various ripple current regimes), modelling (developing physics-based models to predict battery behaviour) and model verification. The work will be linked to projects in energy storage (Zapinamo) and electric vehicles (Jaguar Land Rover).Further information about the project can be found on the link provided.

Title: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) PhD Project - The effect of rapid charging modes on materials within Li-ion cellsValue: This 3.5 year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home student rate) and an annual stipend of £14,296 (current 2016-2017 rate).Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible by completing the online enquiry form and uploading your CV.Project: The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a cross-disciplinary energy innovation hub which brings together capital assets, data and intellectual leadership to foster collaboration between academia and business to accelerate the development of solutions to the global energy challenge.Overview: This project will primarily focus on investigation of electrodes and their constituent materials when subjected to fast-charging protocols. You will use materials analysis techniques on a range of Li-ion cells used in various rapid-charging scenarios. Post-mortem analysis would include various X-ray techniques (X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectric spectroscopy and X ray tomography) and microscopy (scanning electron microscopy and transmission electronic microscopy) techniques, offering an insight into the morphological changes occurring in the cell materials. You will also likely be exposed to electrochemical analysis methods (electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and incremental charge analysis) which offer an insight into the kinetics and thermodynamics of the cells under investigation.Further information about the project can be found on the link provided.

Title: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) PhD Project - Investigation of Novel Anodes for Hybrid Ion BatteriesValue: This 3.5 year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home/EU student rate) and an annual stipend of £14,296 (current 2016-2017 rate).Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible by completing the online enquiry form and uploading your CV.Project: The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a cross-disciplinary energy innovation hub which brings together capital assets, data and intellectual leadership to foster collaboration between academia and business to accelerate the development of solutions to the global energy challenge.Overview: This project will develop novel anode materials for a mixed cation or hybrid-ion batteries. Other studies on mixed ion approaches have used aqueous electrolyte systems, but the energy density of these batteries was limited. You will investigate the intercalation and conversion reactions in a range of hydrothermally synthesized composite materials, such as carbons with transition metal oxides and sulphides for mixed alkali (Li, Na and K) cation batteries. In parallel, the electrolyte systems of these novel batteries will be developed to optimise the compatibility of the hybrid ion approach. The materials will be analysed using powder x-ray diffraction, particle size and surface area techniques with comprehensive electrochemical testing to elucidate their performance.Further information about the project can be found on the link provided.
