Engineering and construction
HVDC Power Systems Engineer/Senior Engineer
Imagine a future where you conduct the electrical design of some of the biggest offshore wind farms in the world using HVDC technology in an exciting and fast-growing industry
Join us in this role where you’ll be a power systems expert focused on developing the electrical infrastructure of our HVDC-connected offshore wind farms within the US. The Electrical System Design & Grid Integration department plays a key role in optimising our wind farm designs, while pushing the boundaries of what’s technically possible.
Welcome to Electrical System Design & Grid Integration
You’ll be part of the US Power System Designs team where you, together with your colleagues, will design the electrical infrastructure of our offshore wind farm pipeline and support a successful grid connection with grid code compliance. The department is very diverse and comprises more than three dozen engineers working in six countries to ensure electrical integration of our offshore wind farms into an increasing number of markets across the globe.
You’ll play an important role in:
- designing and developing concepts for the overall electrical power transmission system from the onshore substation to the wind turbine generator
- supporting technical aspects related to applying VSC HVDC technology to our offshore wind farms and their integration with the onshore grid at system level
- reviewing HVDC supplier design documentation and performing HVDC-related simulation studies
- performing power system studies on the wind farm, including power flow, voltage control, dynamic analysis, fault ride-through, stability, and harmonic studies
- participating in relevant project meetings and cooperating with other team members on shared issues and risks, communicating outcomes clearly to internal and external stakeholders.
To succeed in the role, you:
- have at minimum a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering
- have experience with electrical system design and analysis with VSC HVDC systems using simulation tools like PowerFactory, PSS/E, and PSCAD
- have worked closely with HVDC systems and preferably have experience integrating renewables and complex grid connections
- are flexible, adaptive, and comfortable with uncertainty in a fast-changing environment, while maintaining a proactive, results-oriented, and systematic approach to your work tasks
- have excellent communication skills enabling you to convey complex issues in a simple yet precise manner
- speak and write English fluently.
