Description

A Snapshot of Your Day:

Our Control & Protection department is responsible for the software and hardware engineering of the HVDC systems. Being in charge of the engineering phase, performance testing, and customer acceptance testing, you will also assist and support the projects commissioning phase.


How you will make an Impact:

  • Responsibility for the preparation of quotations as well as for the engineering phase, performance and customer acceptance tests. Support during the system commissioning phase from the office up to handover to the customer worldwide
  • Development of DC protection concepts of self-guided multilevel converters with half-bridge and full-bridge modules for different applications such as symmetrical monopole, bipole, offshore connections or multi-terminal systems
  • Performance of protection coordination studies of HVDC systems using the simulation tool EMTDC/PSCAD, incl. determination of DC protection settings and preparation of study report
  • Programming the software of DC protection and measurement system in MATLAB/ SIMULINK and CFC on the SIMATIC TDC multiprocessor automation system and PLUSCONTROL platform
  • Functional and performance testing: Model-Based-Testing (MBT) in SIMULINK and Hardware in the Loop (HiL) with Real-Time Simulation Systems (RTDS)
  • Customer training and acceptance tests as well as submission of lessons learned for improvement as a central contact person for your project as a protection engineer
  • Support in research and development topics for HVDC projects and first point of contact for troubleshooting and after sales.

What you Bring:
