Job Title: Commissioning Engineer - FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems)

Location: Multiple Locations (Europe)

About Us: Our client is a leading provider of advanced power systems solutions, dedicated to optimizing energy transmission and distribution networks globally. We specialize in the design, development, and implementation of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) technologies to enhance grid stability, reliability, and efficiency.

Job Description:

As a Commissioning Engineer specializing in FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems), you will play a pivotal role in ensuring the successful deployment, testing, and optimization of various FACTS technologies, including STATCOM (Static Synchronous Compensator), Series Capacitors, and SVC (Static Var Compensators). You will collaborate closely with our engineering teams and clients to deliver cutting-edge solutions that address the challenges of modern power systems.

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Commissioning and Testing: Lead the commissioning process for FACTS installations, including STATCOM, Series Capacitors, and SVC, ensuring adherence to project specifications and industry standards. Conduct thorough testing and performance evaluations to validate system functionality and reliability.

  2. System Optimization: Collaborate with design engineers to optimize FACTS configurations for maximum grid stability, voltage control, and power quality enhancement. Implement tuning and control strategies to achieve optimal performance under varying operating conditions.

  3. Troubleshooting and Diagnosis: Identify and resolve technical issues and challenges during the commissioning phase. Utilize diagnostic tools and methodologies to troubleshoot equipment malfunctions and operational inefficiencies, ensuring timely resolution to minimize project delays.

  4. Documentation and Reporting: Maintain comprehensive documentation of commissioning activities, test results, and system configurations. Generate detailed reports summarizing commissioning procedures, findings, and recommendations for stakeholders and project management teams.

  5. Client Collaboration: Foster strong relationships with clients and project stakeholders, serving as a primary point of contact for technical inquiries and support during the commissioning phase. Provide guidance and training to client personnel on FACTS operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting procedures.

  6. Health, Safety, and Quality Assurance: Adhere to strict health, safety, and quality standards throughout the commissioning process, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and company policies. Implement best practices to mitigate risks and maintain a safe working environment for all personnel involved.

Requirements:

  1. Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or related field; advanced degree preferred.
  2. Proven experience in commissioning and testing FACTS technologies, particularly STATCOM, Series Capacitors, and SVC, within the power transmission and distribution sector.
  3. Strong technical knowledge of power systems theory, control systems, and voltage regulation techniques.
  4. Proficiency in diagnostic tools and testing equipment used for FACTS commissioning and troubleshooting.
  5. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with multidisciplinary teams and client stakeholders.
  6. Demonstrated ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and prioritize tasks in a fast-paced environment.
  7. Willingness to travel to project sites domestically and internationally, as required.

Preferred Qualifications:

  1. Professional Engineer (PE) license or equivalent certification.
  2. Familiarity with industry standards and regulations governing FACTS technologies and power system operation.
  3. Experience with SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems and remote monitoring solutions for FACTS applications.
  4. Knowledge of programming languages (e.g., MATLAB, Python) for system modeling and simulation.
  5. Previous experience in providing technical training and support to clients and end-users.

Join us and be part of a dynamic team dedicated to shaping the future of power transmission and distribution through innovative FACTS solutions. Apply now to embark on an exciting career journey in the forefront of electrical engineering and renewable energy integration.
