  • Proven experience in designing and implementing control systems for power generation, transmission and distribution projects.
  • Strong proficiency in control system design, simulation, and optimization using tools such as MATLAB/Simulink, Digsilent PowerFactory or similar software.
  • Familiarity with industry standards and regulations related to power systems and control systems engineering (e.g., IEC 61850, IEEE standards).
  • Experience with programming languages commonly used in control systems such as C/C++, Python, or PLC programming languages.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to analyse complex technical challenges related to power systems and control systems.
  • Effective communication and teamwork skills, with the ability to collaborate across disciplines and communicate technical concepts to various stakeholders.
  • Happy to travel around the UK as required for site visits.

What will you be doing?

  • Collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to conceptualise, design, and deliver control systems solutions for complex power projects, ensuring compliance with industry standards and client requirements.
  • Conduct detailed analyses of power systems and associated control systems, identifying opportunities for optimisation, stability enhancement, and operational efficiency.
  • Develop and implement advanced control algorithms, including model-based and adaptive control techniques, to enhance the performance and reliability of power systems.
  • Undertake system integration tasks, interfacing control systems with various hardware and software components, such as PLCs, SCADA systems, and remote monitoring solutions.
  • Perform simulation and testing of control strategies using industry-standard software tools, verifying system performance under various operating conditions and disturbances.
  • Collaborate with clients, project managers, and stakeholders to provide technical expertise and guidance throughout the project lifecycle, ensuring successful project delivery and customer satisfaction.
  • Stay current with emerging trends, technologies, and regulations within the power systems and control systems engineering fields, contributing to the continuous improvement of technical capabilities.
  • Contribute to the preparation of technical reports, presentations, and proposals, effectively communicating complex engineering concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences.
