Motor Control Engineer


Job Description:


The role involves design, development, and test of inverter control systems for axial permanent magnet motors. Although the predominant focus will be on motor control, the role will cover other electrical systems such as DC-DC converters and design of control electronics.

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual with a proven record in motor control systems ranging from algorithm development, calibration to performing performance validation tests. Experience within the Aerospace sector is desirable but not essential.

Main responsibilities:

  1. Control algorithm development for embedded control systems based upon drivetrain requirements.
  2. Develop control algorithms for brushless permanent magnet motors such as axial PM motors to optimise efficiency.
  3. Simulation and analysis of PM motors, electric drives and high voltage power electronics.
  4. Motor control algorithm design and implementation using C based embedded tools.
  5. Plan and perform control algorithm calibration and testing in HIL, dynamometer and vehicle test environments.
  6. Perform exhaustive motor and inverter characterisation to ensure desired system operation across the operating range.
  7. Integrate various sensors (rotor position, current etc.) with the MCU platform.
  8. Ensure successful integration with other subsystems within the drivetrain.
  9. Liaise and work with a multi-disciplinary team to support development and integration of various subsystems.
  10. Maintain understanding of new technologies, methods, and products.

Experience and qualifications:

  1. Degree in Electronics Engineering or equivalent.
  2. Extensive experience in motor control principles such as FOC, flux weakening, over modulation etc.
  3. Strong understanding of three phase power switching topologies.
  4. Modelling and simulation of electric drives in Matlab/Simulink/Plecs.
  5. Hands on experience working in high voltage & high-power testing environments.
  6. Experience with Laboratory test equipment: Spectrum Analyser, Signal Analyser, Signal Generator, Oscilloscope and DVM
  7. Familiar with PCB schematic capture and mixed signal circuit design. Experience with Altium Designer preferable.
  8. Good analytical and problem-solving skills.
  9. Excellent report writing and presentation skills.
  10. Ability to work on own initiative as well as part of an interdisciplinary team.
