BG Check required to start Oxford’s client needs a Power Electronics Engineer to join their CA team to work on the design and development of EV architectures. Looking for someone who has worked at 1 kW or higher. Automotive industry experience is preferred. Duties:
• Design power electronics components, including power distribution (bus bars, relays, contactors), high voltage cable assemblies, integrated and stand-alone DC-DC converters.
• Design and analyze 5V / 12V power electronics solutions to be applied across a range of low-voltage and high-voltage electric vehicles
• Perform worst-case circuit simulations to predict efficiency and thermal performance limits, support end-of-line testing, and to estimate quality and reliability metrics.
• Support design-, specification- and architecture-reviews
• Support lab tests planning for components, including EMI/EMC performance of EV powertrain components and power distribution systems.
• Define and document system and component requirements, function definition, block diagrams, DFMEA, DVP/R
• Use issue tracking process (JIRA)
• Contribute to overall conformance to well-adopted international standards including ISO26262-Rev2 Education Required:
Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering Knowledge & Experience Required:
Strong foundation in power electronics products (for EV powertrain is a huge plus): AC/DC converters, Battery Chargers, EMI filters, and high voltage power distribution.
Hands-on experience in power electronics hardware development: design, debugging and validation. • 3-7 years’ experience in power semiconductor circuit design for AC-to-DC and/or DC-to-AC converters.
• Working knowledge of power transistor gate drive circuits.
• Demonstrated understanding of power semiconductor switching waveforms, loss modeling and thermal management.
• Experience with power levels from 500W to 50kW+.
• General understanding of EMI/EMC design
• Application knowledge or experience with wide band gap semiconductors including GaN and SiC – preferred
• Power Electronics lab experience and use of data acquisition tools – LabView / Veristand, CANalyzer, Neo VI, etc.
• Understanding of development requirements for OEM production programs (DVPR).
• Design for Manufacturing, Design for Reliability, DFMEA and fault trees.
• New Product Introduction (NPI) experience – preferred
• Experience with creating “flash drivers for microcontrollers” c/c++, firmware, embedded background – preferred and helpful but not a must
