We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Simulation Engineer to join an ambitious engineering and technology company focusing on the future of the low-carbon vehicle markets. The successful candidate will be central to the design and development of new propulsion concepts. The role involves using a range of simulation tools to support the design and analysis of cooling systems, provide thermal management solutions or predict the performance of vehicle and sub-system (e.g., battery pack) through 1D simulation.

 

The Senior Simulation Engineer will:

 

  • Responsible for propulsion system and components thermal performance requirements, product validation plans, and delivering validation tasks
  • Produce accurate analysis for thermal management of propulsion system and sub-systems (e.g., battery, power electronics and electric motors) or xEV using hand calculations (Excel based) or 1D thermal simulation
  • Use a range of simulation tools to build the vehicle or propulsion system models that can be used to predict performance, such vehicle energy/fuel consumption, EV range and battery heat rejection, or as plant models for MIL (Model-in-the-loop) and HIL (Hardware-in-the-loop) for Software team
  • Manage and perform simulation (or co-simulation) to optimise powertrain components sizing and energy management strategies by using Design of Experiments (DoE) and optimisation
  • Interpret vehicle level requirements into propulsion system and sub-system (e.g., battery, power electronics and electric motors) requirements using hand calculations (Excel based) or 1D simulation
  • Improve propulsion system components (e.g., battery, power electronics and electric motors) and xEV modelling, simulation, and digital engineering toolchains
  • Apply a system engineering approach, translating customer requirements into design use cases and sub-system targets

 

The Senior Simulation Engineer will have:

  • A degree or similar qualification in an Engineering, Physics, or science-based subject that covers heat transfer and fluid dynamics with experience of simulation at an OEM or Tier 1
  • Technical background or interest in thermodynamics, with some experience of analysis of thermal systems, ideally within the automotive industry
  • Proven track record in propulsion systems and sub-systems modelling, simulation and analysis to quality targets and milestones
  • Experience of simulation codes (e.g., MATLAB/Simulink, Modelica, Altair Activate, AMESIM etc) is essential
  • Knowledge of xEV technologies, such as Batteries, Power Distribution Unit, Inverters and Motors, as well as Vehicle powertrain, heating, charging and cooling systems
  • Familiarity with systems engineering processes from requirements capture through to design validation

 

If this exciting opportunity is a great fit for you, please apply online with your most recent updated CV and we will be in touch!
