Samuel Frank Associates is looking for a Drives Engineer with a strong background in large scale inverter drives systems (100-400kW) and high power electronics.

Knowledge of energy storage systems/battery emulators and regenerative technology will be highly beneficial for this opportunity.

  • Inverter drive & motor design applications
  • Liaise with customer/internal sales to confirm specification of the system
  • Knowledge of high power converters, generators, transformers and motors
  • Write software for Drives/PLC/HMI/SCADA. A reasonable working knowledge of Siemens TIA portal or similar is desired – not necessarily looking for a “full blown” Software programmer!
  • Oversee and/or carry out system testing
  • Commissioning, the team has an existing Commissioning Engineer – but in the event that support is required then some on site commissioning will form part of the role.

There is a genuine career path and development plan for employees looking to further themselves in an environment where they can make a real difference in terms of projects and delivery.

The client is based in the West Midlands and is easily commutable from the following places – Birmingham, Kidderminster, Redditch, Halesowen, Dudley, West Bromwich and Worcester.
