Project Description

It takes the brightest minds to be a technology leader. It takes imagination to create green energy for the generations to come. At Siemens Gamesa we make real what matters, join our global team.

Siemens Gamesa has a vision for renewable energy: we believe in the power of nature and technology. Help us to be ready to face the energy challenges of tomorrow and make a green footprint – join the team in creating a better future for us on our planet.

We focus on hiring the best people, wherever they may be in the world. We pride ourselves on the flexibility we offer to our employees and are committed to building a workforce that can grow with the company. Siemens Gamesa is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

In our culture of trust, we focus on empowerment, diversity and continuous learning. Valuing our people is what makes us one global team, with our colleagues’ safety at the heart of our organization.

For our team in charge for Grid Support and Maintenance we are looking for a self-driven and proactive Power System Engineer. The team is spread across the US, Spain, and Denmark. We welcome candidates in either of these locations.

How to contribute to our vision

As a power system engineer, you will work with cross-functional projects and you will be the link between the test department and internal and external stakeholders. Interactions can be related to either technical or commercial aspects of our projects. More specifically, your areas of responsibility will among others cover:

  • Grid Code and Developer-requirement analysis

  • Modeling of Offshore Wind Farms; these models will be used to perform steady state, dynamic, transient and frequency domain simulations

  • Perform Steady State simulations to evaluate compliance to requirements related to: Short Circuit, PQ capability, Voltage limits, overloading of equipment, other simulations in the steady state domain.

  • Perform Dynamic simulations (RMS) to evaluate compliance to requirements such as FRT, voltage stability, frequency stability, other simulations in the dynamic domain.

  • Perform Transient simulations (EMT) to evaluate compliance to requirements such as Inrush current, fast transients, voltage stability, frequency stability, other simulations in the transient domain.

  • Create scripts to automate the above described simulations.

  • Write reports where the input data, results and conclusions of the above simulations will be clearly described.

  • Support SGRE Park Control Lead Engineers on Field Tests related activities.

  • Support SGRE Grid Engineer Managers to communicate and defend the results and conclusions written in the studies reports.

  • Support SGRE Grid Engineer Managers to prepare the studies scope of work, which will include the planning of Input data, timeline, description of studies execution and how the results will be presented.

What you need to make a difference

Passion for renewable energy and a sense for the importance to lead the change. We are also looking for…

You have a Master’s degree in electrical power engineering preferably combined with experience in performing Design and/or Grid compliance studies. We also expect you to:

  • Have experience performing several types of electrical studies like Harmonic Studies, Load Flow Analysis, Dynamic Stability, Frequency domain analysis, Transient studies

  • Have 3-5 years of experience of working as electrical/power engineer

  • Have experience using the simulation tools like Matlab/Simulink, PSS/E, DIgSILENT Power Factory, PSCAD/EMTDC or other similar

You are self-driven, analytical, and able to create and maintain an overview of complex tasks. At the same time, you are good at networking. You are motivated by working in a strong technical and customer-oriented environment.

You have excellent communication skills in English both orally and in written form.

In return of your commitment we offer you…

Become a part of our mission for sustainability: Clean energy for generations to come. We are a global team of diverse colleagues who share a passion for renewable energy and have a culture of trust and empowerment to make our own ideas a reality. We focus on personal and professional development to grow internally within our organization. Siemens Gamesa offers a wide variety of benefits such as flexible working hours as well as home-office possibility for many colleagues, employer-funded pension, attractive remuneration package (fixed/variable) and local benefits such as subsided lunch, employee discounts and much more

Empowering our people

How do you imagine the future?

Our global team is on the front line of tackling the climate crisis, reducing carbon emissions – the greatest challenge we face.
