Are you looking for an internship for at least 10 weeks ? We are giving you the chance to put your theoretical knowledge into practice.
As an intern in Coreso’s development department, you will contribute to a tremendously challenging project which purpose is to (1) develop an efficient information exchange to ensure electricity grids operating smartly and cost-efficiently and (2) exchange the necessary data for )regional or pan-European grid (development) studies.
The mission of Coreso is to proactively support Transmission System Operators to ensure Security of Electricity Supply in Europe. Located in Brussels, about fifty engineers, seconded from their companies, combine their expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to anticipate the operation both in the short term and the long term, from a year ahead until Intraday (few hours before real time)
Founded in 2008, Coreso encompasses nine European operators, which are also its shareholders (Elia in Belgium, Eirgrid in Ireland, 50hertz in Germany, National Grid in the UK, REE in Spain, REN in Portugal, RTE in France, SONI in Northern Ireland, Terna in Italy).
Within the European context of progressing market mechanisms, continuous growth of renewable energy, ambitious grid development and further harmonization, new coordination challenges are numerous. Coreso aims to build up, together with all partners, the adequate coordinated operational processes to cope with these game changers. To secure operation of the European electricity system represents a truly international challenge.
As an intern at the Development Department, you will work on practical and sustainable projects which overcome
strategic challenges of Coreso SA.
The intern will also enjoy an international experience while developing professional skills with concrete tasks. This
internship will allow the student to bring their classroom knowledge into a professional work setting and broaden
their knowledge through hands-on application in a professional environment.
Your tasks will include:
The CIM (Common Information Model) is a xml-based standard which will be used in the near future by TSO and RSC to exchange data.
The purpose is an efficient information exchange to ensure electricity grids operating smartly and cost-efficiently; and to exchange the necessary data for regional or pan-European grid (development) studies. More specifically the CGMES (Common Grid Model Exchange Specification) reflects TSO requirements for accurate modelling of the ENTSO-E area for power flow, short circuit, and dynamics applications.
Coreso, as Regional Security Coordinator and as merging entity creates a common grid model based on the individual inputs from TSO’s.
Seamless transition towards CGMES is crucial for Coreso.
The ideal candidate is an Electrical or Electro-mechanical engineering student at Master degree level (4th or 5th year of studies). We are looking for somebody detail oriented, organized and creative and who possesses a professional work ethic and is enthusiastic to gain new knowledge.
Skills and competences:
The intern will enjoy an international experience while developing professional skills with concrete tasks. This internship will allow the student to bring their classroom knowledge into a professional work setting and broaden their knowledge through hands-on application in a non-profit environment.
