ECI is seeking graduate and experienced electrical engineering and engineering physics/mathematics majors to join our Planning and Studies team. If you have experience performing planning studies for electric utilities, are currently involved with detailed study of renewable power or heavy industrial systems or if you are seeking a great opportunity and have an interest in power systems, we want to hear from you.
ECI has Planning groups located in Madison, WI and in the Hampton Roads, VA areas. A new graduate would be expected to work onsite preferably in either of these locations, however, ECI has other offices nationwide and, with experience, working in other office locations is an option. Applicants with experience may be qualified for a hybrid or remote work arrangement.
The position responsibilities include performing a variety of electrical studies that may include steady state loadflow, short circuit, transient analysis, harmonics, insulation coordination, and dynamic system response studies.
We use tools such as PSS/e, PSLF, ASPEN Oneliner, Cape, PSCAD, and EMTP-RV - experience in these not required - related experience in tools such as ETAP, SKM, Powerworld, Easypower considered applicable.
Many but not all the studies will be related to large scale (50 -2000+ MW) renewable energy projects (wind, solar, energy storage). Our team helps customers from project conceptual development, support during design, equipment selection and assistance with plant operating issues after COD. We assist with apparatus ratings and specifications development for EHV/HV/MV/LV transformers, circuit breakers, switches, cables, switchgear, inverters, wind turbines, DC and AC aux power systems, etc.
We also provide services to large and small utility and industrial clients. These studies can involve typical transmission level load additions, long range plans, generation interconnections, black start analysis, voltage unbalance/line transposition analysis, breaker TRV assessments, insulation coordination studies, etc. We have a separate distribution planning group as well.
Regardless of the study type, an experienced ECI engineer is paired with a new hire to assist with training/mentoring on our techniques and QA/QC processes and to ensure your success!
