A recognised power electronics business in the West Midlands have a 6 month contract requirement for a Control Systems Engineer.

The company specialise in High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Systems using both Line-Commutated (thyristor based) and Voltage-Sourced (IGBT based) converter technologies.

Your role is to join a team designing new innovative mechanisms for DC filtering, AC power quality and Chain-link capacitor balancing for Modular Multi-level Converters for HVDC applications.

For this role you should have strong Matlab and Simulink programming skills, with control systems and electronics knowledge.

You should ideally have experience in developing control strategies for novel power converters (not necessarily at High Voltage), with an ability to work quickly and efficiently within an engineering team.

You should be someone who can work to tight timescales and someone who enjoys working at the forefront of technology.

- Control System experience
- Matlab and Simulink
- Electronics knowledge

- High power electronic components (IGBT's, thyristors and passive components)
- Power system engineering
- Power electronic control algorithms and techniques (e.g vector control)
