Motor Control Design Engineer

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

  • Responsible for motor control and monitoring algorithms and models (PM machines)
  • Responsible for creating multi design optimisation algorithm including all the systems
  • Develop motor control with sensor and sensorless control (Kalman, Resolver, Encoder , Effect hall sensors)
  • Create and implement the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) test bench using a real-time simulator for power electronics, interfaces and sensors
  • Integrate and debug motion control models, including inverters, fuel cell and motors, cooling systems , sensors , Systems controllers
  • Create test plans, procedures and reports following the standards for hardware and software validation.
  • Set up the rapid prototype design and verification using RCP/Embedded code
  • Set up the dyno, back to back test rig, and support Ironbird control testing
  • Support motor control and system in aircraft, troubleshooting, debugging
  • Support software integration by engineering embedded code and embedded firmware, and performing hardware-software integration.

Experience And Qualifications
