Have you blown something up and had to figure out how to repair it? Have you released the magic smoke before? Then you are the type of Power Electronics Engineer my client are looking for, please read on.
A business working at the cutting edge of disruptive technologies working towards a new approach to power distribution are looking to recruit a Power Electronics specialist to the team on a 6 month contract initially which is highly likely to extend.
The role will initially be working with a very experienced engineer who is coming to the end of her career and is not offering full time hours, but does offer a vast knowledge of Power Electronics.
The Power Electronics Engineer will be working on an LED driver initially which has a very high efficiency, but low power and is fully digitally controlled.
As the work is so cutting edge and disruptive to power distribution the Power Electronics Engineer will have the opportunity to work on all conventional power supply topologies but will also be working with resonant topologies.
The Power Electronics Engineer will have demonstrable expert experience with push-pull, buck and boost, flyback and resonant topologies and have experience of designing power supplies to output High Frequency AC using GaN, SiC all in digital power with micro’s and fpga’s and frequencies ranging from 50 kHz up to Megahertz. The use of silicon carbide in the product shows how cutting edge the project is.
The Power Electronics Engineer will have full life cycle experience, be comfortable working in a lab, and with the simulation packages mentioned below, magnetic design and full design documentation.
- Power Electronics expert
- Simulation Programmes, such as – PCM, PSpice, LT Spice, SIMetrix /SIMPLIS
- Demonstrable experience of typical power topologies
- Demonstrable experience of resonant topologies
- Full life cycle experience
Nice to have skills:
- Embedded design experience
- Power Factor Correction
