A Career with Solvina

Everyone at Solvina is a true innovator – driven by the belief that groundbreaking solutions are only developed once a problem has been identified. We apply our extensive competencies within science, together with our unique talents and experience, to first identify, and then consider challenges from multiple perspectives.

We challenge the conventional, and scrutinize standard practice. By doing so, we keep pushing forward the frontiers of the power and process industries.

We’re always looking for talented individuals who are as enthusiastic about identifying challenges and developing innovative solutions to them. If you have the spirit of an innovator, then you would be welcome to apply to become part of the Solvina team. Click on the relevant button to the right. If you can’t find a suitable vacant position you’re welcome to submit an open application.

Master thesis: Simulation software business development (ex2023-005)

Thesis Description: Simpow (SIMulation of POWer systems) is a power system simulation software owned by Solvina. It includes modules for: load flow calculation, fault analysis, dynamic simulations (RMS- and EMT-models), linear analysis, and much more. Today, Simpow is mainly used in-house by Solvina; however, Solvina sees potential in the software, and it could be attractive for certain markets. Solvina is therefore offering a thesis within simulation software business development. The aim of the thesis is to write a business case for Simpow. The thesis can include tasks such as: Technical benchmarking towards other softwares (PSS/E, PowerFactory, or similar) Identifying a market Defining a business model Specifying necessary software development For this thesis we are looking for one student with the following background: MSc student within electric power, computer engineering, programming, industrial design, or similar Special interest in the following areas is meriting: Business development, entrepreneurship, industrial management, or similar Power system simulation softwares Numerical methods Solvina is offering: An exciting thesis work performed in a highly competent environment with expert areas such as electric power engineering, process and control engineering, and engineering management. The thesis will be performed at our headquarters in Gothenburg. The exact scope will be decided together with the student to match with the student’s interest areas. If you have any questions about the thesis, please contact Bengt Johansson at bengt.johansson@solvina.com or 031-709 63 66. Selection takes place continuously. Apply here

Master thesis: Modelling of mixed biomass and coal fuel fired fluidized bed boiler (ex2023-006)

Solvina is looking for a master thesis student to perform boiler simulation study.Background:Boilers are used in industry complexes to provide steam needed for different production plants. The same steam is also utilized in on-site steam turbines to generate electricity for the complex. Depending on the size of the boiler/turbine it is sometimes possible to run the complex without connection to the national power grid. Solvina has been developing control solutions for similar complexes in India for several years. Following the desire to increase sustainability more renewable forms of fuel mixes for the boilers are investigated.Thesis DescriptionModelling of mixed biomass and coal fired fluidized bed boilerSolvina has developed dynamic simulation models of coal feed boilers for use in larger complex wide simulation studies. Following transition to renewable resources adding biomass to existing boilers is looked at more and more. The thesis work will look at implementing biomass as fuel in an existing boiler model and investigate how different amount of biomass will affect:Boiler steam flow ramping ratesBoiler control systemsCombustionThe purpose is, among others, to be able to use the results for estimating impact for the on-site power production’s ability to handle load changes. We see this work as a valuable way to improve work methods and understanding of mixed fuel boilers.If you comply with the following, you might be the one we are looking for:MSc student within chemical physics, automation, signals and system or similarLooking for an environment with highly competent colleaguesHigh performing and challenge ...
