Job Info

Position Summary

Perform and support development of engineering designs, models, and technical specifications for distribution FACTS devices, including application studies, software model development/testing and evaluation of reactive power coordinated control strategies.
Essential Functions

  • Perform design engineer functions for Distribution Power Electronics products including essential engineering and distribution system analysis from initial planning stages through study, design and test. Provide support in the area of manufacturing, installation and field verification of Distribution FACTS devices.
  • Participate in the design, development and testing of advanced power electronics, such as converters and inverters, using medium to high power switching components (>500kW and up) and associated protection and gating circuitry. Design equipment to employ the appropriate devices (IGBTs, GTOs, GCTs, Thyristors, etc.) depending on the application.
  • Provide technical consultation in the areas of power converter topology design and development; the application of active semiconductor switching devices; and the application of passive components required for converter power circuits (capacitors, inductors, transformers, etc).
  • Perform verification testing on new designs and products, perform product cost and reliability analysis and provide assembly and test instructions for prototypes and production runs.
  • Compile and analyze operational test and research data to assist in establishing performance standards for newly designed or modified equipment/products and determine if designs meet functional requirements.
  • Participate in the design and proof of concept of various SMART GRID related solutions such as VVO, CVR, FLISR and DA including the integration of appropriate software communication systems.
  • Use and enhance efficiency for software programs such as PSLF, PSS/E, PSCAD, EMTP and others to conduct power flow, transient stability, reactive planning, infrastructure re-enforcement, generator interconnection, and related studies, including studies on the simulation of equipment such as SVC, STATCOM, and other equipment.
  • Use, support others in the use, expand capabilities, and enhance equipment design efficiency via C++, MATLAB, Java, Perl, Python, and others to perform simulations and to code models for equipment such as SVC, STATCOM, custom power, and other distribution equipment.
  • Support technical proposals for equipment, including engineering support, proposal work, and post-award system studies.
  • Participate in industry related organizations such as IEEE, PES, CIGRE, NEMA and other such groups.
  • Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering with 3 to 5 of experience with design of converters, inverters, FACTS devices and motor drives at low and medium voltage levels, or equivalent education and experience.
  • Advanced knowledge of electric power systems and equipment operation and control.
  • Advanced knowledge of circuit and system analysis using computer simulation tools (MatLAB, MathCAD, Simulink, PSpice, and others).
  • Advanced interpersonal, communication, presentation and technical writing skills.
  • Ability to work in a team environment and on several projects simultaneously.
  • Advanced computer skills with emphasis on Microsoft Office products.
