AVL Powertrain UK Ltd offers a job in the United Kingdom (GB) as
AVL Powertrain UK Ltd is currently seeking a Systems Calibration Engineer with a focus on internal combustion engine applications. In this role you will be responsible for verifying and optimizing the systems intent of the diesel engine and powertrains. Your objective will be to ensure that all target criteria are met, and that the powertrain (engine and after-treatment) works to its full efficiency in all operating conditions. The role involves planning, preparation and supervision of simulation activities and physical engine testing. Good knowledge of combustion and engine as well as control methodologies are important for this role. Data analysis, assessment, and documentation of test results for report out to key stakeholders will be an important part of this role.
Our Engineers are typically exposed to multiple different projects during their career working with us, including increasing opportunities in the field of electrified powertrains and e-fuel internal combustion engines. The role is therefore particularly suited to people who will enjoy the opportunity to gain experience in new areas and who can rapidly self-start, combining a pro-active attitude, excellent analytical problem-solving skills, and an outstanding technical engineering background.
- Develop and manage new powertrain calibrations using AVL/customer calibration tools and processes - Development & refining of engine test plans - Planning and execution of diesel engine systems simulation study activities - Support conceptualization studies for future powertrain - Analysis of field data to understand the operation of the powertrain systems, controllers and calibration - Analysis of fleet data and fault finding - Controls development and mathematical modelling using Matlab/Simulink - Preparation of reports (verbal & written), providing robust recommendations and proposals - Lead assessment of simulation and testing results and defining next steps - Liaison with, and report to, multiple functional groups within the organization - Promote robust solutions to address client issues using AVL’s portfolio of services & knowledge - Support internal AVL presentations and participate in trainings and knowledge exchange
- Minimum of 2:1 Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a relevant engineering area (Mechanical, Automotive, etc) - Excellent understanding of diesel internal combustion engine performance and fundamentals, including modern Exhaust Aftertreatment Systems, and future industry trends - Experience with diesel engine performance, calibration, or development - Good knowledge and professional experience of using Matlab and Simulink for engine/aftertreatment modelling - Good working knowledge of calibration tools such as ETAS Inca, ATI Vision etc. - Excellent analytical skills with ability to summarise and make clear technical recommendations across multifunctional disciplines with supporting data - Self-starter with the ability work with high level instruction, minimal detail breakdown and to be able to seek out relevant information, data and support from other engineering groups - Excellent inter-personnel and communication skills - Ability to communicate technical information effectively, both written and verbal, with AVL and customer team members, as well employees in other, customers, suppliers, and the global AVL team - Flexibility to work across multiple projects/locations
Preferable: - Understanding and experience of DoE and emissions modelling - Knowledge of engine combustion/aftertreatment system modelling - Knowledge of calibration and data analysis tools (AVL Concerto, Vector CANape, AVL CAMEO, DIAdem etc)
- Appreciation of powertrain simulation techniques (e.g. Matlab, Simulink, AVL CRUISE™ M) across virtual development, verification, and validation techniques - Knowledge, interest & experience of non-ICE based powertrains (e-machines, hybrid systems, batteries & control systems, etc) - Understanding of worldwide emissions legislations - Masters or PhD in specific subject area preferred - Controls and calibration development using software or hardware in the loop - Familiar with 1-D simulation tools (e.g GT-power) - Strong communication, teamwork and leading abilities
