Join ABB and work in a team that is dedicated to creating a future where innovative digital technologies allow greater access to cleaner energy.
You will be part of Technology & Solutions Development, within the Power Grids division, in Ludvika. The Valve Development department is a part of ABB Technology & Solutions Development and is responsible for the development of state-of-the-art converters for HVDC and FACTS applications and focusing mainly on electrical and mechanical design aspects.
The HVDC technology has been on the market for the past 60 years and is used, among other things, to transmit power over long distances with minimal losses, using overhead lines, underground and submarine cable systems. Please find out more about our world leading technology at
In this thesis work we would like to challenge you to investigate the application of new converter topologies/semiconductors for HVDC application. As part of the thesis, you will perform semiconductor valve calculations and simulations in order to find out voltage stresses and losses in the semiconductors and valve electronics. The theoretic calculations will be combined with high power testing in our test laboratories.
