The Control Systems section within the Power & Electronic Systems Department (PESD) has an exciting employment opportunity for a Senior Engineer Motion Control. This is an experienced professional technical position within the PESD organization.

The Control Systems section is a team of engineers responsible for supporting the design, development and validation of power and actuation (servo) subsystems for various radar systems and other defense applications.

As a Senior Engineer Motion Control you will be responsible for supporting and driving the execution of product development projects. You will be working as or with a Team/Technical Lead and under the guidance of an Integrated Product Team (IPT) Lead. Specific responsibilities include:
  • Designing and evaluating servo control hardware and/or software solutions to meet system operational and performance requirements
  • Developing models and controllers for actuation systems (including mechanical subsystems)
  • Establishing performance, stability and control metrics along with the algorithms necessary to achieve them
  • Supporting system integration efforts
  • Ownership and execution of scope, cost and schedule within programs and projects with minimum supervision
  • Defining tasks and providing direction to junior-level engineering and support staff
  • Participating in peer and program reviews as a Subject Matter Expert (SME).
  • Other tasks as required by the Section Lead and/or Department Lead.

The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary team environment focused on execution and engineering excellence, using established business and engineering tools and processes. The candidate may interact with internal and external customers and leadership team members. Up to 10% travel may be required.

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.

Required Education:
  • Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering

Desired Education:
  • Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering

Required Skills:
  • 5+ years of prior relevant experience
  • Understanding and working knowledge of classic control theory and vector control of electric motors
  • Hands-on experience with hardware and software implementation of closed-loop position/speed control actuation systems (including feedback sensing and protections)
  • Familiarity with IGBT- or MOSFET-based power electronics inverters used as motor drives (including rectifier front end)
  • Familiarity with induction and permanent magnet electric machines
  • Hands-on experience with 1-100 kW systems (bus voltages in the range of 270-1000 VDC)
  • Control system design using Matlab/Simulink or equivalent
  • Prior experience as engineering Team Lead (hardware, electrical or integration)

Desired Skills:
  • Understanding and working knowledge of non-linear systems and control theory
  • Hands-on experience with PWM or SVM for voltage modulation in power electronics inverters
  • Hands-on experience with software (i.e. DSP) or firmware (i.e. FPGA) implementation of vector controllers for electric machines
  • Hands-on experience designing power electronics inverters or controlled rectifiers
  • Ability to create system models capturing implementation-specific characteristics such as propagation delays, quantization, discrete time, sensor non-linearities, etc.
  • Familiarity with Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) systems and their use for motion control applications
  • Understanding and working knowledge of project management (including EVMS)
  • Understanding and working knowledge of requirements management (including DOORS)
  • Familiarity with commercial or military power input/quality requirements and specifications (DO-160, MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1399 or MIL-STD-1275)
  • Active DoD security clearance
