Job Description Responsibilities will include demonstrating expertise in issues related to static frequency converters and static excitation systems (SFC / SES) on Power Generation generators. Excitation systems have a powerful impact on generator dynamic performance and availability; it ensures quality of generator voltage and reactive power, i.e. quality of delivered energy to consumers. Following types are common: * Brushless excitation systems, with rotating exciter machines and Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR), or * Static excitation systems (SES), feeding rotor directly from thyristor bridges via brushes. Main functions of excitation systems are to provide variable DC current with short time overload capability, controlling terminal voltage with suitable accuracy, ensure stable operation with network and/ or other machines, contribution to transient stability subsequent to a fault, communicate with the power plant control system and to keep machine within permissible operating range
Skill Required Required or preferred skills would be high voltage circuitry, generator protection, AC / DC drives, and generator excitation systems. -Execute with limited guidance the analysis / evaluation of assigned projects that meet business standards, practices and procedures and product / program requirements. -Experience in the following SFC and / or SES systems would be a big plus: Siemens Simadyn D, TXP, Siemens Simatic S7, Siemens Simovert, Siemens RG3, Converteam, AEG, Alstom, and Cuttler-Hammer. Static Frequency Converters (SFC) provide solutions to the challenge of transferring power between electrical systems having different frequencies, voltages and/or phase shifts
