Power System Design 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 analysis, specification, and design of large electrical power supplies and equipment associated with experimental magnet systems.
The successful candidate will possess a BSEE (advanced degree preferred) with at least 5 years of experience in the design of multi-MW ACIDC converter systems and their protection systems in a utility, industrial or scientific research environment including proficiency in power electronics, circuit simulation, and control systems, as well as a familiarity with UNIX and C programming language operating systems. In addition, activities will include electromagnetic analysis for plasma disruption simulations and force influence matrix calculations using finite element analysis code such as OPERA.
Experience in power systems commissioning and operations is also desirable. 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.
