Our Power/Control Systems business is looking for exceptionally talented, motivated and creative power electronics engineers to support product development and R&D activities.

This candidate must be a strong team participant, have excellent communications skills, and be resourceful and multi-talented. Technically, this candidate must be capable of detailed design and analysis of power conditioning equipment associated with power supplies, variable speed drives, frequency converters and multi-level converters in a wide variety of applications ranging from 10s of watts to multi-megawatt converters for shipboard and ground-based combat platforms.

Implementation will involve advanced power conversion technology employing high frequency PWM, multi-level architectures, high speed communications and digital and analog controls. Modeling and simulation using SABER for power stages (including associated transformers, input/output filters, dynamic loads, switching devices) and SABER or MATLAB for controls is essential for validating hardware design and performance.

Other tasks would include the design of gate drives, protection circuits, I/O interface circuits and control hardware associated with the power stage. Individual needs to lead small multi-disciplinary teams, support cost and schedule estimates and author reports.
