Powertrain HIL Plant Modeling Engineer #956172
Job Description:
  • The Powertrain Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Plant Modeling Engineer's job is to create and maintain plant models that represent powertrain subsystems.
  • Required to design models for flexibility and reuse -- common models are used across a wide range of applications through specific sets of parameters which are maintained separately from the generic models.
  • The engineer needs to architect models into separate libraries for each subsystem and for interfaces to real I/O.
  • The engineer uses design data, performance specifications, and experimental data (such as engine performance from dynamometer tests) to extract parameters for the models.
  • This job entails working as part of a team of modeling engineers with assignments that rotate among different powertrain subsystems as requirements for new features dictate.
  • Testing and verification are part of the responsibility, as is supporting users who use the test equipment.
  • The models are correlated with real-world data to prove their accuracy.
  • Must be a self-starter -BSME or BSEE with 3 to 5 years of work experience OR MSME or MSEE with 2 to 4 years of work experience.
  • Courses, projects, or work related to modeling and simulation -Knowledge of automotive powertrain subsystems (engines, transmissions) required.
  • Experience with test systems and electronics laboratory work: troubleshooting, use of lab equipment such as oscilloscopes, meters and electronics bench tools
  • Understanding of automotive electronics, preferably powertrain control systems
  • Experience with embedded control, MATLAB and Simulink required
  • Must have excellent verbal and written communication skills in the English language
  • Ability to work in an occasional flexible schedule to accommodate international meetings
  • Hybrid position with minimum of 4 days in office each week.
