Motor Drives Engineer - Power Systems

Dyson

Malmesbury, United Kingdom

Description and Requirements:

Dyson offers a unique opportunity for talented individuals for a permanent Motor Drives Engineer position based in its Research, Design and Development (RDD) Centre in Malmesbury, U.K. which focuses on researching and developing high performance electrical machines and drives.

Market Overview:

This role will involve the development of novel high performance electric motor topologies, assembly methods and electronic control strategies for low cost/high volume domestic and commercial appliances. You will be based in Malmesbury joining the Dyson Motors and Power Systems Group. The Dyson Motors and Power Systems Group is a significant part of Dyson RDD with a growing team of more than 100 highly skilled engineers, scientists and technicians in its Malmesbury, Singapore and Newcastle offices. The Group focuses on researching and developing cutting-edge motor drives for existing and future Dyson products from concept design to fully automated production.

Function Overview:

Dyson now researches and develops batteries which deliver a step performance advantage over conventional cells, through new battery architectures, materials, chemistries, and cell designs. These new technologies come from multiple sources, including: University Research; Internal Research; Technology Scouting and Collaborations with external organisations. The Dyson Energy Storage team hence has a growing portfolio of R&D projects, ranging from early research through to late stage development towards series production.

Accountabilities:

  • Develop novel high performance electric motor topologies and construction methods.
  • Use of 2D/3D static and transient electromagnetic Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to model detailed aspects of brushless motor designs.
  • Develop and use dynamic system simulation tools (Matlab/Simulink, MathCad) to accurately model motor performance, develop the motor controls to meet the target performance, and optimise the electromagnetic design to meet product specific requirements, e.g. lowest cost/smallest and most efficient solution.
  • Test & validate new motor drive designs
  • Work with other Dyson motor drives, electronics and mechanical engineers from Malmesbury and Singapore to ensure that the product performance, reliability and cost expectations are met, all within the planned timeline of the project.

Skills:

  • Working knowledge of the fundamentals of electromagnetic machine operation and an appreciation of machine design theory preferably coupled with experience in the use of 2D and 3D static and transient electromagnetic FEA software such as Infolytica’s MagNet.
  • Advanced power electronics skills
  • Good practical skills in power electronics
  • Good practical and laboratory skills with confidence in the testing of motors and associated power systems.
  • An understanding of system-level simulation of motor drives (including electronics and software aspects of the drive) and the role of this in the integrated development of design and control.
  • Good experience with Matlab/Simulink simulation tools.
  • An appreciation of motor control techniques for low and high speed, single-phase and multi-phase permanent magnet and switched reluctance motors.
  • Be a creative thinker, highly self-motivated and self-reliant with enthusiasm for motors and power systems.
  • Be flexible and open-minded to respond quickly to changes in project priorities and develop novel solutions. Be able to demonstrate sound theoretical knowledge, reasoning and problem solving skills in engineering.
  • Be able to clearly report progress in meetings together with producing a high standard of documentation.
  • A good first degree in electrical/electronic engineering or equivalent, preferably with a machines and drives bias.
