One of the UK's leading consultancies are now seeking an EMC engineer who will be responsible for the delivery of consultancy services to major rail clients including Network Rail and London Underground aimed at ensuring projects are compliant with Electromagnetic Compatibility regulations and standards.
This involves working closely with a client from concept and design, right through to delivery looking at documenting and demonstrating EMC, calculating and modelling electromagnetic interference and also getting involved with specific testing to validate some requirements. The role is primarily a technical one with regular requirement for client interaction.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.
You will be involved in EMC assurance on railways, as well as non-railway related projects (e.g. transmission and generation) and be responsible for and/or support the preparation of EMC related assurance documents such as EMC Strategies and Control Plans.
You will also take part in EMC HAZID workshops, preparing and managing EMC hazard records, be involved in modelling work (e.g. induced voltage studies, calculate magnetic fields, etc.) using Matlab and produce standalone EMC assessments to check the client requirements are met. You will also get involved in EMC site test measurements and other on-site activities (e.g. surveys).
Ideally, we would like you to have several of the skills below:
* Be a Chartered Electrical Engineer or working toward Chartered status.
* A proven track record of successfully dealing with complex issues on both AC and DC traction power systems and their interfaces including interfaces between AC and DC traction power systems and interfaces between traction and non-traction power systems (HV and LV).
* A good understanding of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC, UK EMC Regulations 2006 and supporting harmonised standards framework coupled with knowledge of DC and Low Frequency sources of interference (e.g. harmonics) and coupling mechanisms.
* A good understanding of DC stray current issues and their management and Physical Agents (EMF) Directive 2004/40/EC and the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) limits.
* A good understanding of earthing & bonding principles on AC and DC railways and their implications regarding electrical safety.
* A good understanding of computer modelling techniques commonly applied to the analysis of traction power and associated EMC related issues.
