A leading technology and engineering services business that designs and manufactures bespoke battery systems for next generation aerospace applications is currently looking to recruit a full time Thermal Systems Engineer. Responsible for thermal aspect of electric and hybrid electric powertrain, from collecting the data, preparing the simulation models and performing simulations, to the analysis of numerically and experimentally obtained data.

The Thermal Systems Engineer will:

  • Prepare, perform and analyse thermal system simulations using 1D tools.
  • Build and develop 1D simulation model at full vehicle level with emphasis on powertrain heat transfer, aerodynamics, vehicle dynamics and control logic.
  • Integration of vehicle sub-systems into a larger system level simulation model.
  • Coupling between various 1D models from different departments or suppliers.
  • Suggest improvements on design, processes and methods.
  • Interact with other departments or suppliers to collect input data for simulation and model building.
  • Provide suggestions and improvements after analysing simulation or experimental data.
  • Mentor less experienced engineers.
  • Write technical documents, prepare presentations and communicate the results to higher leadership.

The successful Thermal Systems Engineer will have:

  • A full understanding of electric vehicle thermal management concepts, including flow architecture, heat rejection methods, cooling system components (heat exchangers, pumps, valves, sensors, …)
  • 4+ years of experience in automotive powertrain cooling systems development
  • A strong grasp of Fluid Dynamics, Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer.
  • Good level of programming knowledge in relevant 1D tools to vary control parameters of components such as inverters, batteries and electric motors.
  • Proven analytical abilities with some of the following modelling tools: MATLAB and Simulink.
  • Coupling of 1D and 3D CFD simulations
  • Sub-system and system level testing experience
  • Experience with thermal control logic design and testing
