The Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) at Old Dominion University in Hampton Roads, Virginia is looking for a qualified candidate to support their applied research projects using software and hardware tools for Real Time Simulation and Power/Controller Hardware-In-the-Loop (PHIL/CHIL) Simulation of Power Electronic Devices and Power Systems. The job involves development, customization and implementation of simulation models for marine electrical and electronics applications using RTDS system. In addition, the candidate will be responsible for debugging of systems (both software and hardware) and development of test scripts and interfaces. Application areas may include:

• Application of Power Electronic Converters within scalable HVDC, “Multi-Drive” AC/DC Power Systems

• Power protection systems and utilization of hybrid fault clearance design of HVDC “Multi-Drive” AC/DC Propulsion Power Systems
• Integration of Energy Resources into “Multi-Drive” AC/DC Power Systems
• Stability and Robust Performance of “Multi-Drive” AC/DC Power Systems
• Controller Synthesis and Design integral to Power Electronic Converters
• Application and Control of Power Electronic Converters utilized in “Multi-Drive” LV/HV Island Conversion, DC/DC conversion with Energy Storage Systems (ESS), Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Energy Management Systems (EMS).

 

The candidate we seek has very strong technical abilities and a focus on customer satisfaction, specifically the ability to capture customer needs, devise solutions and deliver them in a timely fashion with clear communication and documentation.

This job offers flexibility, the opportunity to develop advanced technical skills and customer-contact experience, and involves working on exciting projects in applied research and development areas including naval and commercial shipboard applications and autonomous vessels.
