Hardware in the Loop (HIL)

ZeroAvia is a leader in zero-emission aviation, flying the world's largest hydrogen-electric aircraft since September 2020. Its focus is the design and commercialization of hydrogen-powered aviation solutions to address a variety of markets, initially targeting short-haul, sub-regional commercial flights up to 500 miles. To date, ZeroAvia has secured the UK CAA and FAA experimental permit to fly for its 6-seat aircraft powered by hydrogen-electric powertrain, passed significant flight tests, and is on track for commercial deliveries by 2023. Its achievements to date were rewarded by the UK prime minister by inviting ZeroAvia as a member to the UK Jet Zero Council.

ZeroAvia’s powertrain development focuses on integrating hydrogen storage tanks, fuel cell systems, and electric motors, delivering a solution that will be not only without carbon emissions but also cheaper to operate. Commercializing the solution requires the establishment of a new clean aviation ecosystem, encompassing hydrogen production from renewable energy sources and tackling public perception of safety.

Responsibilities

  • Develop and validate software/controls requirements using OpalRt platform tools
  • Lead Rapid-prototyping and control algorithm software integration using dSPACE platform
  • Coordinate HIL bench deployment and support for Fuel Cell and Propulsion systems HIL benches and their associated software and hardware tools
  • Provide technical support and testing assistance for test script development, test execution (Python, PCAN explorer, Code composer.)), test automation support internal/external customer activities
  • Plan, communicate, and coordinate HIL strategy and model rollout to support applications and features requested by different internal teams and customers
  • Design and develop fault injection solutions for sensors, actuators, communications busses, and other hardware components
  • Design and develop hardware simulators for vehicle components such as Inverters (DCDC/DCAC), motors, batteries, fuel cell, distribution boxes, filters etc
  • + Design HIL harnessing, and hardware interfaces required to integrate simulated components with flight hardware
  • Develop support Human Machine Interfaces or GUI to support HIL test execution and rapid prototyping.
  • Maintaining HIL system architecture following requirement update and evolution

Experience and Qualifications

  • Experienced in Electric and hybrid power trains, HV energy management, HV propulsion drives, fuel cells, battery , EV thermal management, real-time plant model development for vehicle/systems closed-loop emulation, control verification & validation
  • Experienced in application software integration and development for OpalRt and dSPACE Rapid prototype systems,
  • OpalRt HiL Real-Time platform & simulation
  • dSPACE ASM, ControlDesk, ConfigurationDesk, BusManager
  • Vector CANalyzer
  • Structured analysis & design, Control system requirements management & development
  • Model Configuration management & requirements tools (e.g. Polarian/SVN ,etc.)
  • Ability to work cross-functionally
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience on Powertrain or aircraft plant modeling and Integration experience
  • Strong software design and debugging skills
  • Ability to read schematics and work with hardware engineers
  • Experience using CAN, RS485, ARINC232, RS232, FPGA, DSP

Diversity and Inclusion

As a young company in the aviation industry, we need people of different backgrounds that bring a plethora of skills, perspectives, and mindsets to the table that can spur originality, imagination, and creativity.
