A Snapshot of Your Day:

Our HVDC Control & Protection Studies team is driving the development of DC network interconnections all over the world, which are being used to shape the power systems of the future and to increase the electricity supply security to customers.

If you enjoy challenging and large projects, take joy in having the opportunity to dive deep into the finest of technical details, and have the passion and motivation to deliver meticulously detailed models and comprehensive electrical network studies while being part of a team of motivated colleagues, then this is the right mission for you.

How you will make an Impact:

  • Performing advanced network studies for HVDC projects during offers and execution (such studies include Dynamic Performance, Network Restoration, and Interaction)
  • Developing and validating detailed simulation models for several EMT software, such as PSCAD/EMTDC, Matlab/ Simulink and EMTP-RV
  • Optimizing the overall behavior of HVDC control systems (for instance with regards to dynamic and black-start performances) according to the customer’s technical specifications and national grid code requirements
  • Developing and parametrizing advanced HVDC control systems such active filtering, grid forming and multi-terminal controls
  • Analyzing potential interactions, such as control and sub-synchronous torsional interactions, between the HVDC converter and other controlled devices in the power system via simulation models and the analysis of the converter harmonic impedance
  • Presenting study results to customers written and orally, as well as training the customers on the developed simulation models and explaining their documentation
  • Support to the project management with expertise in technical discussions, participation in customer meetings and coordination of external partners

What you Bring:

  • University degree in electrical power engineering or control engineering
  • Initial professional experience in the energy sector is desirable, but not mandatory
  • Solid knowledge in the field of high voltage applications, power transmission systems, power electronics and HVDC technology
  • Expertise in control engineering and modelling of HVDC systems in the time and frequency domains
  • Professional user of typical power system simulation programs (e.g. PSCAD/ EMTDC, Matlab/ Simulink, EMTP-RV)
  • Fluent English, ideally also German
  • Outstanding team skills and communication skills as well as initiative and customer orientation
