Key Responsibilities

  • Management of budget, schedule, and quality to ensure successful completion of power system studies projects.
  • Perform complex research and develop recommendations for equipment and/or materials selection.
  • Perform power systems analysis including transmission planning and feasibility studies to analyze the impact of proposed generation expansion on the transmission system.
  • Perform steady-state load flow analysis for system intact and contingency conditions. Analyze any limiting constraints such as thermal overloads and arrive at recommendations for the transmission upgrades based on various build-out configurations and cost estimates.
  • Develop dynamic models for conventional and inverter-based resources.
  • Prepare generation Interconnection studies per ISOs/RTOs requirements.
  • Develop detailed transmission system models in the EMT software (PSCAD, EMTP-RV). Perform electromagnetic transient analysis such as TRV, switching surge, lightning, TOV, and insulation coordination.
  • Develop an understanding and comply with the Transmission and Regulatory quality program
  • Perform detailed market pricing analysis and economic forecasting and resources revenue calculations
  • Support continuous improvement and team management efforts

Project Coordination: Shares and coordinates information with other team members.

    Very knowledgeable coworkers; Working closely with industry veterans; Many practical and challenging projects; Very good benefits.

    Many projects don't last for more than a few weeks, hence young engineers may face lack of continuity - which can also be seen as an opportunity to gain experience in different tasks and learn new software/ skill sets.
