Motor Drives Engineer - Entry Level
Competitive + bons + pension + 27 days holiday
Research and develop novel high performance electric motor topologies and construction methods.
Use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to model detailed aspects (electromagnetic & other) of brushless motor designs.
Develop and use dynamic system simulation tools (Matlab/Simulink, MathCad) to:
Accurately model motor performance
Develop the motor controls to meet the target performance
Optimise the electromagnetic design to meet product specific requirements, e.g. lowest cost/smallest and most efficient solution.
Test & validate new motor drive designs
Work with other Dyson engineers in the UK and Singapore to ensure that the product performance, reliability and cost expectations are met, all within the planned timeline of the project.
We need a creative thinker, highly self-motivated and self-reliant with enthusiasm for motors and electrical power systems.
Theoretical background of electric motors (undergraduate course module or similar)
An appreciation of motor control techniques for low and high speed, single-phase and multi-phase permanent magnet and switched reluctance motors.
An understanding of system level simulation of motors, electronic components and controls and the role of this in integrated development
We would prefer familiarity with Matlab/Simulink simulation tools
An understanding of finite element based tools for electromagnetic (& other) simulation, experience with industry standard finite element tools (e.g: Infolytica’s Magnet) is an advantage.
Be flexible and open-minded to respond quickly to changes in project priorities and develop novel solutions. Be able to demonstrate sound theoretical knowledge, reasoning and problem solving skills in engineering.
Willing to learn from subject matter experts across a range of disciplines. The role will require an appreciation of all aspects (mechanical, thermal, acoustic….) of a motor.
Practical and laboratory skills with confidence in the testing of motors and associated power systems.
Be able to clearly report progress in meetings together with a high standard of documentation.
A good first degree in an electrical/electronic engineering or equivalent preferably with a machines and drives bias
For applicants from non-English speaking countries, proficiency in spoken and written English is mandatory.
At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic, but most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do.
