A Snapshot of Your Day 

Siemens Energy has an exciting opportunity to develop and grow a new business function in support of the growing US HVDC market.  With the increase in demand for HVDC technology, we have decided to establish a dedicated team within the US to support the delivery of future projects including a full transient network analysis laboratory for functional and dynamic performance testing.  As a HVDC Study Engineer you will work within a team of HVDC project management and engineering specialists to design and deliver full HVDC control and protection solutions making use of a new transient network analysis laboratory located in Raleigh. You will report to the Engineering Manager – HVDC C&P and will be required to provide engineering work packages in line with project and business objectives.


How You’ll 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, as well as training customers on the developed simulation models and explaining the documentation
  • Support to the project management team with expertise in technical discussions, participation in customer meetings, and coordination of external partners

What You Bring

  • BS 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
