Job Description

Power Supply Electronics Design Engineer

Stonehouse, Gloucestershire

Job Summary:

The Electronics Design Engineer is responsible for assisting in providing innovative and cost-effective solutions requiring the development or sustaining of new or improved techniques, procedures or products related to power electronics (power conversion, motor control and motor drive). The Electronics Design Engineer also assists in planning, conducting and evaluating approaches to meeting the project objectives in a timely fashion.

Essential Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Assist in identifying and organizing requirements for power electronics applications. Apply relevant usability procedures and principles. In charge of keeping the Product Maturity Tracker (requirement document) updated up to project closure.
  • Analyze, design, develop and maintain products and assist in their commercialization. Product commercialization include but not limited to full system integration, full environmental qualification and successful field test.
  • Perform necessarily calculation/simulations to validate the design (efficiency calculation, identification of hot spot, estimation of temperature rise, EMC filter sizing, control loop bandwidth verification, .)
  • Design magnetics with associated simulation. Magnetics needs to be outsourced using "built to print" manufacturing file methodology (to allow double sourcing)
  • Design for test and for manufacturing with the support of the concurrent team
  • Build prototypes, products and systems suitable for testing. Set up and run lab experiments. Design and implement tests, document results and develop customer presentations. Provide timely corrective actions on defects. Release test reports of all prototypes built using the standard Power CPE engineering test platform.
