Please find below a subject for a PhD in Telecom Bretagne in Rennes, France, in applied mathematics and computer science.

** Subject **
Competition and collaboration in future electricity markets

** Description **
This thesis aims at analyzing the evolution of the Power Grid, from a technical, and mostly economic point of view. It is motivated by the current context of gradual deregulation of the electricity market, that leads to totally new competitive situations. With the development of distributed energy resources, the formation of Micro Grids (energetically self-organized regions), and the evo- lution of the “classical” Power Grid to the so-called Smart Grid, the upcoming electricity markets will dramatically change, involving a soaring number of self-interesting agents (energy producers, carriers, brokers, consumers, and agents simultaneously playing several of those roles). The objective of this thesis is to investigate the new balances of power among those stakeholders, and the outcomes resulting from their non-cooperative interactions. Among the expected contributions, we intend to provide insights regarding the global performance (measured in terms of, e.g., societal or environmental impact) in such systems, and the potential improvement that proper regulation policies could yield. In terms of methodology, we shall build on the tools and methods developed in the context of the recently deregulated telecommunication networks: stochastic demand modelling, optimization, and game theory. The models that we will develop will however need to encompass the strong specificities of electric energy (costly storage and transportation, hardly predictible and largely distributed production, large demand variations), and the new flexibility opportunities offered by electric vehicles and targeted consumption control.

** Keywords **
Smart Grid; Micro Grid; Electricity Pricing; Game Theory; Non-cooperative games; Optimization

** Environment **
The candidate will work at the Network, Security, Multimedia department of Telecom Bretagne. The working language will be French or English. The expected startup date is October 1, 2012. It may however be flexible and can be chosen by the candidate in consultation with Alexander Pelov and Patrick Maillé.

** Background **
The candidate must have a solid background in applied mathematics and stochastic modeling. The ability to program in Matlab or other similar programming language is also essential.
Some knowledge of physics, electrical engineering, and/or telecommunication networks would be appreciated.

** How to apply and/or get further information **
Applicants must submit official academic records for their bachelor and masters education. It is a requirement to hold a masters or an equivalent degree for being considered for this position. At least two references (name, position, e-mail, and telephone number) should be included in the application.
Candidates should send by e-mail a CV and a statement of purpose to:
