Motor Control Engineer
Based in Woking, the Motor Control Engineer will be joining an established technology team working within a range of markets, including Automotive, Energy and Consumer Products. The area of the business the engineer will be joining is continuously growing and you will be working alongside the hardware design team.
The successful candidate will be able to develop electric motor controls for a range of applications.
You will be expected to develop low level power switching algorithms and high level torque and mode control from concept through to end product. The engineer will use Simulink or VHDL to design motor control switching algorithms for implementation onto FPGA hardware or microcontroller eTPU. Experience with high speed switching technologies including SiC semiconductors is favourable as well as the design of automotive electronics and software.
The Successful candidate will have a strong relevant degree with skills in the following:
*Experience with Synchronous Permanent Magnet motor behaviours and control challenges
*Knowledge of SPM operation + Control algorithms including field weakening
*Strong understanding of C and VHDL for control system implementation
*Experience with motor efficiency, thermal and performance testing.
*Experience with hardware in the loop simulation, especially dSpace systems.
*Knowledge of other motor types, including switched reluctance, and their control and drive technologies.
*Experience with Matlab and Simulink for control system modelling and code generation.
