Marine Power Systems is seeking a simulation specialist to join their wave energy and floating wind technology development team. The successful candidate will work closely with the project lead, in-house design and simulation engineers, as well as external wave energy specialists, to provide expertise in the simulation of wave energy systems, particularly the power take-off [PTO] system, and the hydraulic subsystems. The simulation will be predominantly in the Simulink/ WEC Sim environment, but will also include support in simplifying and implementing PTO models into Orcaflex.
The Simulation Engineer will then interpret these results to provide information for the design and operations teams. In addition to the simulation abilities, a good understanding of optimisation methods, the use of cluster/ parallel computing, and an ability to understand and interpret mechanical systems into simulation analogs are highly desirable for this role.
Ideally, the candidate will also have a strong grasp of wave energy converter control theory and may be required on occasion to assist with prototype testing activities and will also be responsible for occasional dissemination of the technical work at conferences, seminars, and potentially journal papers.
The candidate will be based at the MPS head office in Swansea.
