AC Power Systems Engineer
The Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), a world-renowned fusion energy research center under contract with the U. S. Department of Energy, is seeking the services of an Electrical Engineer with experience in the design, procurement, comm1sswmng, and operation of large electrical AC power systems and associated equipment.
The successful candidate will participate in the specification and design of Medium Voltage and Low Voltage AC distribution systems typical of nuclear power plants and large industrial facilities, and will oversee the activities of engineering subcontractors, construction subcontractors and equipment suppliers. In addition, activities will include the modification and commissioning of existing facilities in support of project upgrades at PPPL involving AC power systems and associated equipment such as distribution systems, switchgear, and control and protection.
Successful candidate will possess a BSEE (advanced degree preferred) from an Electrical Power Engineering Program with at least 5 years of experience in the design, specification, and procurement of AC power systems equipment in a utility, industrial or scientific research environment including proficiency in power systems analysis using software such as SKM, PTW, ETAP, PSCAD, MATLAB/Simulink/SimPowerSystems, etc. Demonstrated project management experience with power systems startup acceptance testing, commissioning and operations is also desirable. Familiarity with ACIDC converters and DC systems would be advantageous.
The ability to interact and communicate effectively with a wide range of scientific and technical personnel and willingness to work on all aspects of a project are highly desirable, including the supervision of engineering subcontractors and oversight of equipment suppliers.
