(Senior) Power System Engineer focused on performance of new technologies

Imagine a future where you’re developing our power system solutions for large-scale offshore wind farms and other converter-based generations

Join us in this role where you’ll be responsible for the development of new solutions and assess the power system performance of existing and new converter-based technologies, such as wind turbines and batteries, to meet the future requirements for our offshore wind farms.

Welcome to Electrical System Design & Grid Integration
You’ll be part of the Power System Solutions team consisting of a diverse and highly specialised team of power system engineers. You, together with your colleagues, will ensure that our wind farms are being integrated into transmission grids globally, and you’ll be part of a department that’s key to the strategy of expanding and ensuring integration of our large-scale offshore wind farms.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • investigating and analysing new technologies and features in relation to grid connection and overall electrical power system performance
  • performing power system studies on manufacturer provided models and the overall wind farm, including dynamic and transient analysis, as well as stability and harmonic studies
  • benchmarking and validating system performance of new technologies, commercial simulation models, and other specifications, such as for wind turbines, batteries, or other converter-based components
  • participating in technical risk assessment and technology qualification of the above mentioned
  • developing standardised methodology frameworks and boundary conditions, enabling the continuous evaluation of model development and system performance across technologies and suppliers.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a master’s degree in electrical engineering within the field of power systems
  • have experience with electrical system design and analysis using simulation tools such as DIgSILENT PowerFactory, PSCAD, and PSS/E and programming experience in Python
  • have knowledge within advanced power system studies related to stability, harmonics, transients, etc.
  • understand power system control, stability, and operation aspects with renewable generation, having experience within wind turbines or converter design is an advantage
  • are flexible, adaptive, and comfortable with uncertainty in a fast-changing environment, whilst maintaining a proactive, result-oriented, and systematic approach to you work tasks
  • speak and write English fluently and have excellent communication skills enabling you to convey complex issues in a simple yet precise manner.
