High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) converters and the forthcoming “HVDC Grid” is a very exciting and dynamic field of power engineering. With its metres-long measurements and tens of tonnes of weight, the development of HVDC Valves is technically challenging that requires pioneering innovation and strong teamwork from a collection of various engineering disciplines.
The successful candidate will be part of a highly motivated, dynamic and rapidly growing team of engineers, either working on development of new power electronics applications for power systems or participating in execution tasks for mega HVDC turnkey projects.
The role will involve working in a rotation between R&D and project deliveries, which provides an excellent opportunity for a motivated candidate to innovate, expand their engineering skills and personal development within an internationally recognised organization in the field of HVDC.
The successful candidate will strengthen their technical, business, and leadership skills by completing an education curriculum through training courses, mentoring or job assignments. Program participants will also work on a group project where they design, execute and present the results to the executive managers of the business.
The candidate will have completed 2 years of degree level in a related science such as power electronics and electrical engineering.
Candidates should be familiar with concepts of power electronics, high voltage engineering and passive components such as inductors and capacitors. Knowledge of high-power and high-voltage design and control issues is an advantage.
Ability to interact with other engineering disciplines and good at knowledge sharing.
Willingness to develop ability in product design, validation and industrialisation
Candidates must be able to fulfil a 12-month continuous employment and have the legal authorization to work in UK. We will not sponsor individuals for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job.
