JOB DESCRIPTION

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ENGINEER IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

Location Type Salary
Buckinghamshire Contract Up to 37ph
  • Reference: 008923
  • Contact: Graham Vockins
  • Tel: 0121 230 1070

Urgent requirement for a senior level Electrical systems Engineer for a contract opportunity.
You will ideally have proven experience in the application of electrical systems design within battery powered or electric hybrid vehicles.

Electrical Systems Engineer Role:

Developing battery system performance maps and parameters using virtual and physical methods
Calibration and modelling of battery pack.
Battery modelling in MATLAB/Simulink/GT Suite.
Responsible for battery system electrical performance requirements, product validation plans, and delivering validation tasks (virtual and physical).
Developing battery system performance maps and parameters using virtual and physical methods.
Calibration and modelling of battery pack.
Interpret vehicle level requirements into battery system requirements.
Model battery behaviour and estimate performance during drive cycles.
Develop control strategies to meet performance and life targets.
Performance issues resolution ownership.
Support BMS calibration.
Support battery performance testing.
Create Can configurations for test procedures.
Support Vehicle performance integration and development.
Occasional travel to the test sites will be necessary (10% of the time)

Electrical Systems Engineer Requirements:

Degree in relevant engineering discipline with a minimum 3 years relevant experience.
Prior Senior or Lead Engineer equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required
with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving and quality decision making.
MATLAB/Simulink.
Understanding of CAN and ability to use.
Experience of typical BEV and PHEV battery system solutions and technologies.
Experience of defining and/or using appropriate 1D and 3D CAE analysis tools to design, verify and optimise electrical performance.
Strong people skills and the ability to work individually and in a cross functional team.
Work experience to project manage a design through to production and manage several parts across multiple vehicle programmes.
Problem solving using standard 6-sigma templates and processes.
Knowledge of MS Office tools is preferred.

Competencies:

Systems Thinking - Defines the system of interest by drawing the boundaries, identifying its context
within its environment, its interfaces, and that it has a lifecycle to aid in planning the problem
statement, scope and deliverables ; analyses linkages and interactions between elements that
comprise the system of interest by using appropriate methods, models and integration of outcomes
to understand the system, predict its behaviour and devise modifications to it in order to produce the
desired effects.

System Requirements Engineering - Uses appropriate methods and tools to translate stakeholder
needs into verifiable requirements to which designs are developed; establishes acceptance criteria
for the system of interest through analysis, allocation and negotiation; tracks the status of
requirements throughout the system lifecycle; assesses the impact of changes to system
requirements on project scope, schedule, and resources; creates and maintains information linkages
to related artefacts.

System Capability Engineering - Identifies system capability and risks through analysis or
experimental testing of the system, sub-system, or super system in the context of its environment;
negotiates and verifies requirements against capability to guide project scope and system
development accordingly; assesses legacy system versus proposed new system solution capabilities
and makes decisions as to how best to achieve system capability with consideration of stakeholder
trade-offs.

Product Interface Management and Integration - Identifies and analyses the interfaces and
interactions across system boundaries by specifying the requirements and limits to ensure that the
product meets requirements; controls the interactions across the system element boundaries by
making sure that they remain within specified limits; integrates system elements by creating an
integration plan, including identification of method and timing for each activity to make it easier to
find, isolate, diagnose, and correct.

Product Problem Solving - Solves product problems using a process that protects the customer;
determines the assignable cause; implements robust, data-based solutions; and identifies the
systemic root causes and recommended actions to prevent problem reoccurrence.

Product Failure Mode Avoidance - Mitigates potential product failure modes, by identifying
interfaces, functions, functional requirements, interactions, control factors, noise factors, and
prioritised potential failure modes and potential failure causes for the system of interest to
effectively and efficiently improve the reliability of Cummins` products.

Decision quality - Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.

Drives results - Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.

Communicates effectively - Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a
clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.

Builds networks - Effectively building formal and informal relationship networks inside and outside
the organization.

Resourcefulness - Securing and deploying resources effectively and efficiently.

Manages complexity - Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory
information to effectively solve problems.
