Role Summary: This role is intended to interpret the customer's technical inquiry and to design the most cost effective overall solution for an HVDC installation utilizing the GE power electronic solutions, with the objective of minimizing the total cost, and to specify the main (high-value) items of bought-out equipment. The successful candidate will be involved in the development and industrialization of solutions tools and processes.
Main Circuit Design The goal of the Main Circuit design is to come up with a scheme design that meets the customer's requirements, using a combination of GE products and externally sourced main plant equipment, in an optimised and cost-effective manner.
Equipment Specification Creation of project-specific, high economic value, equipment specifications for equipment such as power transformers, instrument transformers, reactors, capacitors, surge arresters etc.
Filter Design Design of AC, DC, High Frequency harmonic filters and screening. Calculations of filter performance and rating. Creation of project-specific equipment specifications for filter reactors/capacitors/resistors.
Insulation Coordination Studies Determination (by simulation) of temporary and transient overvoltage stresses on equipment and surge arrester energy ratings.
Reliability and Availability Studies Creation of overall reliability and availability models for projects and reporting to the client.
Losses Calculation of overall project losses and reporting to the client.
Development and Industrialisation Develop and industrialise solutions tools and processes associated with the engineering activities identified above.
Process Improvement Review and record design processes and develop new or improved processes.
GE Beliefs • Customers determine our success • Stay lean to go fast • Learn and adapt to win • Empower and inspire each other • Deliver results in an uncertain world
Health and Safety • Identify and evaluate EHS risks in own area and implement practical measures. • Set the example by demonstrating the proper acts and actively observe work conditions and behaviours, giving constructive feedback and celebrating EHS effective prevention. • Actively participate in defining corrective actions when work is unsafe or when an uncontrolled risk is observed. • Routinely observe routines and behaviours of others and provide immediate feedback regarding unsafe behaviour and celebrates achievements or safe behaviours. • Actively and routinely promote the identification of hazards and near misses to their team/s.
Quality • Take part in the development and deployment of engineering processes, working methods and best practices within the Department. • Enforce engineering discipline and set processes across all work tasks and adherence to company policies, quality procedures and work instructions (e.g. through training, technical reviews). • Report or resolve any non-conformance's in a timely manner.
Engineering degree including Power Systems and Power Electronics subjects (minimum 2:1), with Considerable experience in the Design and Implementation of HVDC Schemes or equivalent knowledge & experience
A higher degree in Power Systems or equivalent is preferable or equivalent knowledge & experience.
Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EU/EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post, as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.
